holy_calamity writes "Technology Review has an update on a screen technology from Qualcomm called Mirasol that delivers LCD-like colors and video but sips power like e-ink. Demonstration Android tablets with 5.7 inch Mirasol displays apparently held up well in bright light and were responsive enough for gaming. Qualcomm are in the process of building a $1 billion new factory to make the screens, which should appear in devices from phone and tablet makers next year."

    Shit. I thought we already changed everything. I'm not buying anything else until we stop changing things!

    This is great! I keep a Sony Reader, since it accepts SD cards, loaded with survival manuals, medical books, car/motorcycle repair manuals, only problem is most of the files are in PDF format, which the device isn't too great at displaying. Combine this screen in a device with large storage and battery, solar charging option and I'm all set Unless Ron Paul continues his trend, he's in second in Iowa, then I'll have no need for such a thing.

    Oh wow. A techno survivalist nutjob. Here on Slashdot.

    Sorry guy, the Aliens have already contacted the Illuminati. NO digital devices will be allowed to the masses. Not even Ron Paul can save us now.

    We're doomed.

    Other than the fact that somebody attached it to a Notion Ink Adam, not really...

    Bah. Keep in mind that every ounce you waste on your tech gadgets is one less round for your gun. And the guy who didn't skim rounds on his gun will eventually come by and take your Sony Reader from your cold, dead hands.

    This technology uses "interferometric modulators", which I cannot hear in anything but Marvin the Martian's voice.
