- Sharp to Mass Produce an LCD with Switchable Viewing Angle Oh this is so ’24’ it’s awesome. Also I love that they’re turning one of the traditional problems with LCD screens (narrow viewing angles) into a feature. That’s so neat!
- Television took 30 years to reach a mass audience – broadband has taken three “Ofcom predicted that virtually all British homes – 99.6% – would have access to a broadband connection by the end of this year. By 2010, it suggested that more people could be watching television over the internet than via analogue sets.”
- Glowing temperature-sensitive sink-fixtures Loving this – visual feedback on how hot the water is from the tap. How useful would that be!

There’s some creative spin on the reporting of the Ofcom report: “have access to a connection” is not the same as “have a connection”…
I notice the Ofcom support states “have access to *a* broadband connection”, which probably means to get to the figure of 99.6% they’ve included things like satellite and wireles which costs a small fortune relative to ADSL and cable. I doubt that nearly everyone in the country has access to an affordable broadband connection.
