Kanex (http://www.kanexlive.com) has released two new products: the mLinq and the AirBlue.
The US$99 mLinq is an USB-to-HDMI adapter that supports full 1080p HD. It’s designed to enable a simple and cost effective way for extending and connecting your Mac to a second or third display in high-definition. Mac users can now utilize up to three displays showing content from; the notebook screen, a second display via the Mini DisplayPort to your Apple LED Cinema Display and the third from the USB port to your HDTV.
For legacy Macs (2006-2009 models) that don’t include a Mini DisplayPort connector, the mLinq lets the computers connect to any HDMI enabled external display such as an HD projector, monitor or an HDTV. The mLinq is USB powered and sports a built-in LED light.
The $49 AirBlue is a portable, Bluetooth music receiver that enables you to wirelessly play, listen and control all your favorite media from your iPod touch, iPhone or MP3 player through your home stereo or speakers. To use it, you connect the receiver to your home stereo system with the included cables, and then pair your device to the AirBlue.
You can stream wirelessly to listen to, share, and control your music from up to 33 feet away. The AirBlue receiver uses Bluetooth v2.1 with EDR technology.
