Since then, other companies, such as SiPix , have come out with electrophoretic display technologies. In the last four years, we have also seen companies like HP and Fujitsu bring out flexible displays that use cholesteric LCD technology. (Cholesteric refers to the phase of a liquid crystal in which the molecules are aligned in a specific manner. In Fujitsu’s case, for example, up to 50 percent of incident light in specific wavelengths and colors is reflected). E-paper has to be a cheap, reflective, low power, and preferably bendable, or have rollable display technology, and we are only just seeing the development of the technologies that can deliver this, namely an electrophoretic frontplane bonded to a flexible organic electronic backplane. These are the displays currently on the verge of being launched by Plastic Logic and Polymer Vision .
An article on Wednesday about a warning from leading security technologists that granting American and British governments special access to encrypted communications would put the world’s most confidential data and critical infrastructure in danger described incorrectly a technical flaw in an effort by the Clinton administration to read encrypted communications. The flaw would have allowed anyone with technical expertise to encode the encrypted communications so that even the government could not read it, not allow anyone with technical expertise access to the encrypted communications.
