DIY Pixel Qi Sunlight-proof LCDs coming soon!

The news of the week is that Pixel Qi, manufacturer of sunlight-proof LCDs, is going to be releasing DIY LCD replacement kits that will allow your laptop to use much less power (allowing your laptop to run 20-30% longer) plus the LCDs themselves work well in bright sunlight.

Sony Accelerating Production of Larger OLED TVs

Sony is accelerating their production of larger OLED TVs.


OLED TVs are obviously better than traditional TVs due to their lower power while high output, meaning brighter, better pictures. There’s also Samsung, who is working on their own OLED TVs.
