Snapstick promises to “snap” the Web to your TV

Ok, so I watched this video and all I could think of is…that’s not a “snap.” But trying to get past that, the idea here is cool and no reason it couldn’t be ported over to your laptop as well. Would love to get my hands on it though to run it through its paces.

It’s also sounds like you’re not really streaming Web videos directly from your iPhone, iPad, or laptop to your Snapstick-enabled TV; instead, once you “snap” a video to your set, the system “offloads the Internet connection to the existing Wi-Fi network in your home” — meaning, essentially, that your iPhone or laptop is acting more like a “visual” (as Snapstick puts it), URL-flinging remote control than an actual streaming device.
