    [Q] WebTop Hack?

    OK...so this webtop hack....I've read a bit and it seems that it only works with HD TV's right? Whats the point? Do people really use their phone to access the internet on the TV? I was kinda hoping I'd be able to connect this to my lap top and see the phone that way (like how it does with the laptop/dock set up that they sell)....am I wrong? That would be a MUCH easier way to text during class.

    Your assumption is correct. The Webtop Hack, and Webtop in general, is only for use on stand alone HMDI enabled displays or TVs.

    I'm pretty sure there is an app/pc program combo that lets you text via the PC, but Webtop won't do it.

    I'm not sure if people actually use this to use the internet on their TV. Using the phone as a mouse is a pretty bad experience in general so without their keyboard + mouse it kind of sucks. I personally am using the hack so I can run emulators on my TV and sit back with a wii controller and play pixelated PS1 games on a 55 inch TV

    I was using some internet... Because I didn't have wireless and the tethering was so slow it was pointless. And it's pretty fun playing games on the big screen.

    The main point is that you don't have to buy the dock in order to access the webtop app.

    Of course you can play angry birds! Haha! That was one of the first webtop videos(A moto rep playing angry birds on a huge tv.) I saw back when we didn't even have a release date on this puppy.
