“For as long as I can remember, the release of a new version of Windows represents an opportunity for the media to opine on the future of Microsoft. The company will either thrive or vanish into irrelevance based on this latest iteration of Windows. Such reasoning tends to look silly in hindsight. After all, Microsoft minted plenty of money during the dismal Vista days and minted plenty of money during the well-received Windows 7 era.” Von Ashlee Vance > Weiter bei Bloomberg Businessweek

“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. Now flash-forward to this Monday: According to a report from the Korea Times, Samsung is seeing “huge” orders for this display, and Apple is “likely” to be one of the major players.” Von Christina Bonnington > Weiter bei Wired/Gadget Lab
