Toshiba is the third PC maker to announce a wireless USB product this week.

Rounding out this week's wireless USB news is Toshiba and its Wireless UWB Port Replicator.

The Portege R400 series is one of Toshiba's high-end laptops (with a twisty screen!), which can now be paired with a wireless port replicator docking station that needs no cables to connect with peripherals like a printer, monitor, projector, mouse or external hard drive.

These kinds of products make me happy because it means a lot less of this kind of situation on or under my desk.
