Samsung Transparent Notebook Nears Release

February 8, 2010

It seems that Samsung is nearing the release of its transparent active matrix OLED (AMOLED) displays, with the company likely to release devices boasting the displays over the next 12 months.

Transparent displays are both impressive and a little confusing...

For those who haven’t encountered the AMOLED arrangement, the image above should give some impression. Essentially, the display itself is transparent, meaning your desktop (or whatever else you happen to be watching) is not quite fully transparent, but still pretty hip nonetheless. Still, the technology will likely be more interesting in devices other than notebooks, so it’s curious to see that Samsung does have other devices in the works.



Facebook Privacy Policy Changes

November 18, 2009

Facebook has moved to update its privacy policy to a version worded in terms that the average user might actually be able to understand, as opposed to the previous one, which was an awkward morass of legal terminology.

According to the Facebook blog post about the new privacy policy, the move represents “a continuation of our ongoing effort to run Facebook in an open and trsnaprent way.” It’s admitted that the main goal of the revision to its privacy policy was to make it so that users would find the terms more accessible and easier to understand.
