    E-Ink just released a new screen.. i heard about these a while ago -- they are truly amazing.. i think that these will eventually lead to really thin screens that the average consumer can buy -- can you imagine being able to "Pin" a screen on a wall or whatever instead of a (relatively) big LCD screen.. or how bout being able to have onna these things in a laptop -- making screens thinner and waaayy lighter..

    i think itd be really cool if apple could license this technology..

    edit: though this screen is too small and impractical for a laptop, E-Ink is continuing to make monitors, etc. which are really amazing..

    WOW! That is very clever stuff, I'd kill for a nice 32" Wide format display using that technology, you could just hand it on the wall! :D
