I haven't read through the entire thread here, but bendable displays are entirely gimmicky. There's no real benefit to displaying the time/stock ticker/weather/or whatever else on the side of the display when it's not in use. It just doesn't seem all that practical to me. Bendable displays won't be the death of Apple. Samsung has demoed flexible OLED displays for years now.
Thanks Steve for all of the awesome technology!

Wow that would be pretty sick to just whip out a screen, although there still needs to be a battery.
Yeah. With wireless charging coming now too, we could see something like this within 5 years. That would be pretty cool.
