Annoyed by the bulge your cell phone creates in your pocket?

World's First Flexible Smartphone Invented in Canada

Thanks to researchers in Canada, those telltale lumps could become a thing of the past—a group at Queen's University in Canada has created the first smartphone you can bend. The so-called PaperPhone is a only a prototype right now, but its creator, Roel Vertegaal, believes the device, and flexible display technologies in general, will become commonplace in the future.

"There have been only three display revolutions," Vertegaal told PCMag. "The first was CRT, the second was LCD, and the third is flexible displays. When I first got wind of them, I realized they were going to change everything. " The phone's display is based on E Ink, the same technology used in ereaders like the Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble Nook. "What's really cool about a book is that you can crack the spine and flip through pages," says Vertegaal. At this point the PaperPhone needs an external connection to work. The Imminent Rise of Social Cloud Computing. Cloud computing is the distribution of services like information storage and processing as if they were utilities, rather like electricity sold over a power grid.

The Imminent Rise of Social Cloud Computing

The idea is that people use and pay for only as much as they need. But one problem with this model is trust. How can users be sure that all the nodes in the cloud can be trusted, that there aren’t some nodes that are malicious? Such nodes might disrupt information processing tasks by refusing to co-operate or by sending back false data, for instance. Today, Abedelaziz Mohaisen and pals at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis suggest a fix.

Their idea is to ask members of a social network to make their computers available for processing tasks when the computers are not otherwise being used, rather in the manner of distributed computing programs such as SETI@Home. But how would such a system work? Whether that will turn out to be the case in a real network, we’ll have to wait and see. Funny Interview Cast of BBT. Ysalamir. Ysalamiri were furry, lizard-like tree-dwellers (on average, about 50cm in length) native to the planet Myrkr, most known for their ability to repel the Force by creating a Force-neutral bubble.

Ysalamir

This ability evolved in response to predation by the Force-sensitive vornskrs. Many ysalamiri grouped together would expand their Force-neutral bubble by varying distances – sometimes by kilometers. Anatomy Edit "I hate that thing. " ―Jaina Solo, complaining about the ysalamir's ability to repel the Force[src] Adult ysalamiri grew up to 90 or 120 centimeters and hatched their young from bubble-like eggs. Ysalamiri sank their claws into the Olbio trees on which they lived and drew nutrients. Ysalamiri did not actually negate the Force; since all existence was infused with Force energy,[2] this would not be possible. Miriskin was a commodity supposedly made from ysalamir skin.
