+ - Sony Develops Bendable Digital Display

Submitted by

eldavojohn writes "Hot on the heels of Fujitsu's announcement, Sony has claimed advances in a fully flexible display. Don't get too excited, however, from the article: Sony said it has yet to decide on commercial products using the technology. "In the future, it could get wrapped around a lamppost or a person's wrist, even worn as clothing," said Sony spokesman Chisato Kitsukawa. "Perhaps it can be put up like wallpaper.""

+ - New Jersey Sues YouTube Over Crash Video

Submitted by

eldavojohn writes "The New Jersey Turnpike Authority (NJTA) has sued YouTube and a number of other video sites for showing footage of a car crash that happened on the turnpike and was, therefore, property of the turnpike. The NJTA requested the footage be removed under the DMCA — which YouTube complied with — unfortunately, the video was copied to several other sites. The NJTA still seems to be targeting YouTube since YouTube "did not try to prevent the very same video from being uploaded again by users immediately after it was purportedly removed." We'll have to watch this closely and see if, even after you take down material violating the DMCA, you are at fault to any extent for people who already copied said material."

Benchmark Tests, performance charts, and comparisons with other HHDs are included. This is an interesting read. http://www.extremetech.com/article2/0,1697,2131552 ,00.asp"
