ITRI Introduces i2R e-paper in Hopes of Reducing Worldwide Paper Consumption - "The i2R e-Paper uses a flexible cholesteric liquid crystal panel to store and transmit images. This display technology uses ambient light from its surroundings to display images, and therefore does not require a light source of its own, unlike a traditional LCD screen. Because it uses preexisting light, it does not require power consumption to display images. The addition of different pitch spherical composite ion-exchangers allows the cholesteric liquid crystal to display different colors, namely red, blue and green. The cholesteric liquid crystal display is completely recyclable and needs only heat to hold its 300 dpi images." via Earth Techling

AUO Posts Worse Than Expected Quarterly Loss, Doesn't Foresee Speedy Recovery Soon - "The company also further slashed its capital spending this year to T$60 billion from a previous forecast of T$70 billion in July and T$95 billion seen at the beginning of the year. It plans spending of no more than $40 billion in 2012, to cut costs. Panel makers are struggling with falling prices due to weakening demand for demand for TVs, desktop monitors and notebook PCs in top markets. South Korean flat-screen maker LG Display, the second largest LCD maker, posted its biggest quarterly loss last Thursday as tepid demand for televisions and computers hit panel prices and one-off losses weighed." via Reuters
