+ - Polymer Vision unveils rollable E ink device

An anonymous reader writes: A company called Polymer Vision, which spun out from Philips in 2006, has come up with a rollable E ink display that's called the Readius. It's similar to the Sony Reader, except that it can be rolled up into a small pocket-friendly form factor. The Readius can display 16 shades of grey and it has 4GB of on-board memory, so you can store all your books, emails and PDFs on it. It also features USB, as well as GPRS/EDGE and DVB-H connectivity, meaning you can download data wirelessly, too.

+ - Climate Change model results in

AliasTheRoot writes: Over the last year, the BBC has been promoting a distributed climate modelling project, along the lines of SETI@HOME and with the aid of 250,000 people produced a set of climate models up to the year 2080. The results show a marked increase in temperature. The British Isles themselves look to be having a 4C rise in temperature, and a massive increase in precipitation. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sn/hottopics/climatechange/
