I will discuss why and how to introduce momentum dissipation into
the framework of the gauge-gravity duality with particular emphasis
on the condensed matter applications. I will review the most relevant
models and how to extract the thermoelectric conductivities within them.
As a physical and interesting utilization I will present the recent 
developments about the possible existence of universal bounds on 
conductivities and diffusivities linked with quantum chaos.
