I want everything to be without wires.

Wires, cables - I hate them. What options are currently available (or really just around the corner) to make my world wireless.

I hate plugging things in for electricity, for syncing, for uploading and downloading. I hear rumours that WiTricity will be available this year, I know there are some charging pads out there... what gadgets can I pick up to either reduce my wires or do things that I didn't do before, but without wires.

Not a gadget, but dropbox can take care of a large portion of your file transferring needs without cables or external devices.

Can you be a little more specific as to what you mean by "things?"

I'm assuming you use a cordless mouse and keyboard...

One of the best things about switching from Blackberry to Android is that my contacts and calendar sync wirelessly.

Your iPhone and iPad can be entirely plug-free once iOS 5 rolls out, if you don't mind putting the device in some kind of inductive charging case.

Response by poster: By "things" I mean everything that usually has a wire in order to function: so anything powered by electricity (wind-up flashlights are awesome), anything that plugs into my computer (or tv or dvd player) that can be done through wifi or bluetooth.

And yes, I currently use a wireless mouse, wireless headpieces for the phone and I'm looking forward to iOS 5. But I'm sure there's cool stuff I'm missing out on.

Roku makes products that can connect your radios, TV, speakers system, and computer wirelessly. I love their products.
