LG bending limits of e-book design with flexible displays



 


LG has started mass production of the "world's first" plastic electronic paper display. The screen measures 6 inches diagonally and has a resolution of 1,024x768 pixels. It can bend at a range of 40 degrees; easier to carry than the e-book readers today.

Google may be planning Siri rival for later this year



Google is said to have a new system in the works dubbed "Assistant", designed to help people complete tasks by voice.
