Photo of the Moment
--My transparent laptop, inspired by this flickr gallery. Not as cool as some of them but not as bad for a few minutes work.
If you want to try it yourself, I'd suggest taking a photo while holding the camera right around the front edge of the laptops keyboard (with the laptop shut of course), and then take the final photo from the same angle but further back. In my case setting as unstretched wallpaper let it extend beyond the sides of the screen (my camera is higher-rez than my laptop) and got everything about the right size.
In case you were wondering, the red ribbony thing with photos is the wrapper from a copy of "Body for Life", with a rough sketch of my head by a cow-orker peeking out behind. I think it's the phone that really connects the laptop to the background, along with the paper.
