One of the best things about laptops is that they allow you to work from pretty much anywhere. Unfortunately, as anyone working from the couch or their bed will know, using a pillow as a makeshift desk can mean things get pretty warm pretty quickly.
At IDF this week, Intel engineers revealed that they had come up with a "pillow-proof" technology to eliminate that 10°C difference in temperature that occurs when a laptop is placed on a bed or blanket as opposed to a desk.
Unfortunately for us, Intel didn't want to talk about how it actually fixed the problem – Reg Hardware reports that the guys at IDF declined to discuss it – but aside from helping those of us lucky enough to work from home, it will also contribute towards better notebook designs in general. With the new technology, manufacturers can develop more powerful notebooks that don't require more powerful cooling mechanisms.
Sounds great, Intel. Now spill the beans on how your technology works!
