I think they should call it the lazysoft.

HIGH POINT, N.C. (Reuters) - Leave it to La-Z-Boy and Microsoft to find a way to surf with your feet up.

The companies during opening day of the International Home Furnishings Market in High Point, N.C., on Thursday unveiled the "e-cliner," a plush recliner with Microsoft's WebTV hard-wired into the armrest.

The e-cliner will retail from $999 upholstered to $1,299 for the leather version, complete with the WebTV keyboard console, set-top box and two month's free WebTV service.

Although the e-cliner, dubbed the "Explorer," generated some buzz for the company's recliner business, the roll-out comes as La-Z-Boy works to integrate recent acquisitions that have diversified its product offerings and boosted revenues for the furniture maker.
