Amazon Kindle DX images leak: 9.7-inch E Ink screen

Is this the new Amazon Kindle DX?  According to one source, you're looking at Amazon's new, larger-screen ebook reader, complete with a 9.7-inch E Ink display (versus the Kindle 2's 6-inch panel) and QWERTY keyboard squeezed down to the very bottom.  As we suggested might be the case yesterday, it looks like textbooks, not newspapers, are the Kindle DX's target: at least one university has claimed to be taking part in a trial where students will be provided with the new device and preloaded textbooks.

Delphi to use E Ink SDC for long-range wireless keyfob

Delphi to use E Ink SDC for long-range wireless keyfob

Car manufacturer Delphi will be one of the first to use a new "segmented display cell" (SDC) from Manufacturer E Ink, which promises simple, clear displays that are both paper-thin and require minimal battery power. E Ink currently supplies the e-paper displays for Sony's Reader and Amazon's Kindle eBooks; however these new SDC panels are even thinner, have 180-degree viewing angles and can be produced in non-rectangular shapes (or even have holes in them). Delphi will use the SDC in a wireless bi-directional keyfob.

Edible Ink: Print, Flavor, and Eat

Edible Ink: Print, Flavor, and Eat

Be hip, be posh, hang out at the avant-garde, and eat some paper. Heck, eat your menu if you’d like. The Moto Restaurant, Chicago, serves innovative cuisine using a modified Canon i560 printer as an oven. Using edible ink and edible paper, they print out images of food, then flavor the printed paper by dipping them in various condiments, and then bake or fry them to your liking. And yes, you really can eat the menu. What better than to taste something first before you order it. So just rip off the picture from the menu and take a bite. Yum.

Microsoft DisplayCover gives Surface an epaper touchscreen

Microsoft's detachable Surface keyboard may already bring easy text entry to the tablet, but the company is cooking up a new DisplayCover prototype with its own e-paper touchscreen. The work-in-progress peripheral is the handiwork of Microsoft's Applied Sciences Group, combining not only a physical keyboard but a full-width touchscreen which can be used to show menu items, toolbar controls, or even offer an alternative input area.

Polyera Wove wearable previews true flexible display

Rollable displays may be a mainstay of science-fiction but they've been slow to show up in the real world, something startup Polyera aims to change. Just headed out of stealth mode after spending a decade working on flexible electronics to pair with a monochrome E Ink display, Polyera plans to demonstrate the worth of its Flexible Thin-Film Transistors with a homegrown product, the Wove wristband, in 2016.

Apple’s autonomous car may be headed to the test track

Apple’s autonomous car may be headed to the test track

Apple is negotiating to use a former California naval base to test out its Project Titan car, new documents confirm, hinting that self-driving vehicles may be let loose on the 2,100 acre site. GoMentum Station, near San Francisco, has reinvented itself as a proving ground for self-driving cars and connected vehicle technology but, more importantly perhaps to Apple, its roughly 20 miles of paved city streets and highways are kept secure by military police.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ hands-on – Phresh Phablets

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ hands-on – Phresh Phablets

The new Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has arrived, and it's brought along a fancy cousin in the shape of the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+. Each of the phablet-scale phones sit at the top end of Samsung's Android family, offering super-high-resolution displays, lashings of processing power, and the sort of build quality that proves Samsung is no longer playing around with plastic. As I found when I went hands-on with the pair, however, they're also surprisingly different despite the family relationship.

Epson EcoTank printer changes everything, ditches ink cartridges

Epson EcoTank printer changes everything, ditches ink cartridges

Whether you buy an expensive printer or a cheap printer, those ink cartridges are going to run out sooner than you'd like and replacing them will -- in some cases -- cost as much as the printer itself. Though we haven't be able to completely do away with printers yet, the need for them has decreased greatly enough that many people, faced with the high cost of ink, elect to run to the nearest library when they do need to print something. Only a shift in how printers work could potentially change this, and it looks like Epson is the one to bring about that change.

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Review (2015) – Middle child syndrome

If you’re only going to do one thing, you need to do it really, really well, so the stakes are high for Amazon’s 2015 Kindle Paperwhite. Slotting in-between the $79 Kindle and the well-esteemed - but, at $199, expensive - Kindle Voyage, the $119 Paperwhite now gets a 300 dpi E Ink screen not to mention new software intended to make reading more immersive. Question is, does the new Kindle suffer from middle-child syndrome, or has Amazon managed to eclipse not only its entry-level ereader but its flagship. too?
