"For all the good things that leviathan Samsung comes up with, they have to spoil it somehow. Now, I'm not saying that the tech behind this ID card is teh bad, but it's the principle. Winston Smith, where are you?
The idea consists of an ID card with an AMOLED display that looks normal until you bring it up close to an RFID card reader. Then, Shazamalamadingdong! The display lights up, giving the stern border guard who's giving you the once over a 360-degree close up of your head. Then, I guess, depending on how much he likes the look of you, it's either on with the latex gloves and bend over you won't feel a thing, Mush, or thanks so much have a nice stay in our beautiful country."

"Traditionally favored by middle-aged women, wallpaper could cut carbon emissions and eliminate the need for light bulbs, with a UK company using OLED technology to create light-emitting wallpaper.
The government-backed Carbon Trust has awarded a £454,000 ($720,000) grant to a company by the name of Lomox, to develop the special wallpaper. Inspired by OLED TVs which use low voltage, Lomox hopes to use some of the same technology for wallpaper that lights up rooms and outdoor areas, believing they can get an affordable product to market by 2012."

"Another week, another "world's thinnest." LG's new LCD looks like an OLED, and at just 2.6mm thick, it's actually a shade thinner than Sony's XEL-1.
Thankfully LG didn't compromise on diagonal size, with this prototype coming in at 42-inches. It's LED-backlit, with a 120Hz processor (for the US market, anyway) and apparently only weighs 4 kilograms." Source
"Apple reportedly plans to postpone the launch of its tablet PC from an original March launch schedule to the second half of 2010, as the vendor has decided to switch some components and plans to launch a model using a 9.7-inch OLED panel from LG Display, according to sources from component makers.
The sources also indicated that in addition to Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry), Quanta Computer and Pegatron Technology are expected to be manufacturing partners for Apple's two tablet PC models - one of which will have a 10.6-inch TFT LCD panel while the other will have a 9.7-inch OLED panel. However, the sources did not explain how production for the two models would be split between the three makers." source
