Curved handheld displays almost ready for market

Curved handheld displays almost ready for market | World News | Scoop.it

Both LG and Samsung plan to release phones that feature curved displays in the near future. Curved displays are in the early stages of development and allow bendable or foldable designs that could eventually allow mobile and wearable gadgets to take new forms that could radically change the high-end smartphone market.

Ji-Wei's insight:
Many phone technology companies like Apple, Samsung and LG are turning to curved screens. These curved screens are made of a flexible glass like willow glass or gorilla glass. Bendable glass will feature curved displays on phones. When is this technology going to be implemented and hit the market?

Can we get all the nature we need in digital form? – Sue Thomas – Aeon

Can we get all the nature we need in digital form? – Sue Thomas – Aeon | World News | Scoop.it
We surf the net, stream our films and save stuff in the cloud. Can we get all the nature we need from the digital world?

But what do we mean when we refer to ‘nature’? It’s a common term that seems to have an assumed collective meaning, often romanticised and sentimental. We speak of ‘getting back to nature’ as if there was once a prelapsarian baseline before we humans interfered and spoiled it. Gary Snyder, the American poet and environmentalist, offers alternative definitions from which we can choose. In The Practice of the Wild (1990), he distils down to two ways in which the term ‘nature’ is usually interpreted. One, he argues, is the outdoors: ‘the physical world, including all living things. Nature by this definition is a norm of the world that is apart from the features or products of civilisation and human will. The machine, the artefact, the devised, or the extraordinary (like a two-headed calf) is spoken of as “unnatural”.’The other meaning is much broader, taking the first and adding to it all the products of human action and intention. Snyder calls it the material world and all its collective objects and phenomena. ‘Science and some sorts of mysticism rightly propose that everything is natural,’ he writes. In this sense, ‘there is nothing unnatural about New York City, or toxic wastes, or atomic energy, and nothing — by definition — that we do or experience in life is “unnatural”.’ That, of course, includes the products of technology. This is Snyder’s preferred definition — and mine too. However, though it’s not always made clear, I’d venture a guess that environmental psychologists might have a preference for the former, human-free definition of nature.

Ji-Wei's insight:
There are real aquariums and aquarium wallpapers on smartphones. A study at the University of Pennsylvania shows that when patients were they taken in for surgery, and they had removed and placed the fish tank. On days where the fish tank was there, it showed that the patients had less anxiety. My question is how can this be implemented in other places than a hospital.

Is population growth out of control?

Sir David Attenborough says that population growth is out of control - but one expert says it could peak in 40 years. Which should we believe?

Via Wildcat2030
Ji-Wei's insight:

David Attenboroug, an actor has seen the human population multiply by 3. In 1950, the population 2.53 billion people in the world, now there are 7.16 billion, th epopulation has multiplyed by 2.8% It is estimated that the population of the world will be over 40 billion by the end of the century. I was wondering what will happen when there are too many people in the world.

Indiana Takes Obamacare Back to Supreme Court #nullandvoid | World News | Scoop.it
I It looks like Obamacare is going to be taken back to the Supreme Court, if a group of Indiana school districts get their way.

Via littlebytesnews
Ji-Wei's insight:
In Indiana, 15 school districts and the state of Indiana filed a lawsuit against Obamacare. The case involves around workers who work over 30 hours a week get medicare, but they don't receive medicare. Workers who work over 30 hours a week are getting minimum coverage from the medicare. How is this going to resolved and when?

It should go back to the SCOTUS because Obama is also changing the law without Congress making amendments. Obama is not suppose to change the law he is suppose to enforce the laws. Instead he gave big business waivers and Congress exemptions from Obamacare. The law should be null and void.

Barack Obama Full Remarks On Government Shutdown


Via Pulp Ark
Ji-Wei's insight:

On October 2nd, the U.S government "shutdown." Because of the government shutting down, pay checks for those who work for the government such as border patrol will be delayed, but their jobs will not be stopped. Things such as NASA will be shutdown, but their mission control will stay open. My question is when wiill the government get out of this situation.

Leaked: Fitbit's next fitness tracker, the Fitbit Force

Leaked: Fitbit's next fitness tracker, the Fitbit Force | World News | Scoop.it

Fitbit’s fitness trackers could soon take a big step forward. The Fitbit Flex seems to improve on the Fitbit wristband formula in every major way.


Via François-Xavier Schaeffer
Ji-Wei's insight:

The fitbit tracker is a watch that has many uses for people. Not only can it tell time, but the Fitbit watch can also tell the elevation of where you are. This will be ery helpful to hikers and mountain climbers in the future when they go hiking or mountain climbing. The one question I have is how well they will sell when they're released.

Is this where wearable media is going, in other words, away from mini-smartphones?

Richard Platt's curator insight, October 3, 2013 10:40 AM

Sigh - more wearables.  ;-)

Laura Wiesner's curator insight, November 8, 2013 8:21 PM

This article is talking about the tech specks of the Fitbit Flex.  It is also comparing it to other fitness bands. Since their recent show, these bands might be able to reduce the number of overweight and obese peopel in the us. It might also encourage children to be more active. They seem promising, but the real test will be in the future.
