Link: “Nine Designers Imagine the British Flag Without Scotland”

“If Scotland takes itself out of the United Kingdom, it would probably make sense for the United Kingdom to remove Scotland from its flag. Yes, the Union Jack as we know it might be at stake in Thursday’s referendum on Scottish independence. The British flag’s blue-and-white cross represents Scotland.” Von Belinda Lanks > Weiter bei Bloomberg Businessweek

“Google and VSP, the nation’s biggest optical health insurance provider, have struck a deal to offer subsidized frames and prescription lenses for Google Glass, the Internet-connected eyewear. The announcement could take wearable devices, which tech analysts say are the next wave of computing, out of the realm of science fiction and into the mainstream by making them more affordable and giving them a medical stamp of approval.

“Flexible displays have tickled our imaginations for years. And before the end of 2012, we’ll finally see companies employing flexible displays in their products. But while the possibilities are tantalizing, don’t let your imagination run wild. The earliest iterations of flexible displays won’t be very bendy, and they won’t appear in Apple hardware as some news outlets have recently speculated. In early March, Samsung announced it would be mass-producing its flexible OLED displays, like the one seen above, by the end of this year.
