According to Ryan Waniata 2015, “There are a lot of reasons OLED displays are revered by video experts as the superior display technology over LEDs, and even plasmas. But one of the most intriguing design traits of OLED tech is the ability to create ultra-thin, malleable displays. LG Display showed off the scintillating possibilities of the technology last year with a rollable 22-inch OLED display. Now, as reported by Yonhap News, the company has unveiled a detachable 55-inch display that you can literally stick to a wall using nothing more than a magnet.”

According to John C. Abell 2012, “The Internet has sustained some pretty intense assaults in the past couple of years. There was the heavy-handed attempt to stamp out content piracy with SOPA/PIPA, the Federal Communications Commission’s Net neutrality ruling, which many saw as splitting the baby, and that whack job who claimed to own a patent on the World Wide Web.

It is again open season on the Internet in Dubai, where the International Telecommunication Union, a United Nations agency ‑ whose mandate includes global communications ‑ is weighing proposals from many of its 193 member nations. Some of these proposals ‑ such as decentralizing the assignment of website names and eliminating Internet anonymity ‑ would make enormous changes to the organization and management of the Internet.

The ITU meeting, which began on Monday, runs through Dec. 14. Its agenda, and even the fact the proceedings are taking place at all, set off alarms among the Internet’s guardian angels.” Read more > http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2012/12/06/how-the-united-nations-could-ruin-the-internet/

iPhone 5S To Land In June 2013 With NFC And Super HD Retina+ Display – uSwitch

According to Dew Alam 2012, “Apple’s seventh-generation smartphone will be a major update, boasting substantially better specs than its predecessor, an analyst has forecast.

According to Peter Misek of Jefferies, the handset informally dubbed the iPhone 5S will feature a camera and a screen rocking a so-called “super HD” resolution, which we can only assume means higher than 1080p (the iPhone 5 features a ‘sub-HD’ resolution of 1136 x 640).

Moreover, the display – which may be even labelled ‘Retina+’ to reflect the increased pixel count – is also likely to be an IGZO (Indium gallium zinc oxide) variety. This, and we’re paraphrasing Wikipedia here, enables smaller pixels for a higher resolution display than the amorphous silicon typically used for the active layer of an LCD screen.” Read more > http://www.uswitch.com/mobiles/news/2012/12/iphone_5s_to_land_in_june_2013_with_nfc_and_super_hd_retina_display/

According to Samsung Electronics 2012, “Samsung Electronics said on Wednesday it had filed a complaint against Ericsson with the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC), requesting a U.S. import ban and sales ban on some of the Swedish telecoms equipment maker’s products.

The action taken on Friday by the world’s top smartphone maker, which accused Ericsson of breaching seven of its patents, came after Ericsson requested an ITC U.S. import ban on Samsung products and sued the South Korean firm for patent infringement.” Read More > http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/12/26/us-samsung-ericsson-idUSBRE8BP00F20121226

According to Natasha Baker 2012, “Whether it is improving health or managing finances better, about 87 percent of Americans will make resolutions for 2013 and there are plenty of apps to help them achieve their goals.

Nearly half of New Year’s resolutions are about setting health-related goals, which is the most popular category, according to a recent survey by online broker TD Ameritrade.

Rather than jumping into a rigorous fitness routine, a new app called 5K Runner suggests it might be better to ease into things slowly and focus on building sustainable habits. The iPhone app helps couch potatoes ramp up their running distance to 5 km over the course of eight weeks.” Read more > http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/12/24/us-app-newyear-idUSBRE8BN0I620121224

According to Leila Abboud and Alistair Barr 2012, “Apple’s stock may be sliding as investors fret about growing competition, but store visits and interviews with smartphone and tablet shoppers in 10 cities around the world suggest consumers share little of that negativity.
