Thought for the month

“There is nothing noble in being superior to some other man. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.” Probably W.L. Sheldon, US lecturer on ethics (1858 – 1907) rather than Ernest Hemingway.

Daytime TV

At the recent CeBIT trade show Samsung exhibited an ambient light powered LCD screen. The prototype featured a 46-inch screen that supported full HD resolution video, at 1920x1080 pixels. Clearly the fact that Samsung has been able to cut down power consumption by such a margin that it can be powered by ambient light is an impressive feat but would I have to switch on extra lights in order to watch my TV at night?
