Onyx Now Working on a Lighted E-ink eReader "Right now everyone is quietly anticipating Amazon releasing a frontlight-equipped Kindle, but it seems like they might be beaten to the punch by a small Chinese ereader maker. Onyx has just posted a video showing their latest prototype, and from what little I can make out in the darkened room it looks impressive." via The Digital Reader

Latest multifunction marine displays from Raymarine feature u-blox GPS (AMY-6M GPS) "Armin Böshenz, u-blox VP of Sales, EMEA, said: “Raymarine’s latest multifunction displays leverage multiple features of our leading GPS module technology, including compact size, high-sensitivity, wide operating temperature range, and immunity to RF noise.

iPad’s Smart Cover Might Get Its Own Flexible Display "The [patent] application, originally filed in August 2011 and made public today, describes “thin flexible display technology” which can be integrated into the cover. This secondary display, Apple believes, would “greatly enhance” the overall functionality of the tablet."" via Mashable Tech

New Patent For LCD Temperature Tolerance "Supplementing the background information on this patent, VerticalNews reporters also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent: ..."The present invention provides a gate driving circuit capable of preventing a malfunction under condition of high and low temperatures."" via equities.com

MacBook Screen Cautionary Tale "The cable, coming straight out of the connector, then pushed it on top of my MacBook: Not having noticed what had happened, I closed the screen. Apparently, the glass on Apple’s new screens is really thin, because it immediately broke. ...And perhaps the thicker glass on the older MacBooks would have survived this accident. Tiny design decisions can add up." via ignore the code
