    Now I'm really curious about this. I notice the article conspicuously omits the price of the tech version of Entertainment weekly... anyone know?

    Also, if its not rediculously priced can anyone pick me up a copy and mail it to the UK? As I said, I'm really curious.

    Holy crap. I will buy at least 3 of these and harvest the LCD screens for my projects. Somebody eating it for this method. Heck the screen ain't cheap., unless its China knockoffs.

    Nah, this is hardly far from Hallmark cards, that plays music. Depending on the depth, the battery should be similar to an ipod shuffle. But factors like supported colors and screen resolution can eat up the battery. So the right mix of screen and battery will be used.

    But can it blend?

    Oh no, your surprise is well justified. I'm still trying to find out how those cards work. :D 
    These guys will also need a fast but low power microprocessor/controller. I want to know their frame rates also.

    I'm keenly interested too. Still, I don't watch TV anymore cos of the ads, I tape every show I want to watch so I can FF the ads, so in the end it will start to annoy people like cinema ads - trying to read an article with L'Oreal ads or something constatntly playing would be excruciating.

    Some Companies are trying to change that. They want to put little ad boxes during the FF/REW process.

    More ads coming to TV -- even to one-time havens - Yahoo! Finance

    This is kind of funny. I was looking up what e-paper was on the net earlier this week.

    Well, we have to wait and see if they can pull it off. With DVRs connect to the net + software updates = very likely for those with newer DVRs.

    So, this is like the opposite of sticking a Post-It on a computer monitor, yeah?

    Sorry, print media. You're still going to become obsolete eventually. And $20 magazines sure wouldn't slow that down.

    Well, it is in this case, from the first article, apparently this particular magazine will only be released in NY or LA...
