Israel Reportedly Hits Syrian Army Sites in Damascus, Russians Up Air Defenses after 2nd Chopper blown.

This Could be an additional spice in cooking of World War 3: Syrian media reported an Israeli airstrike near the Damascus airport Wednesday morning. The target of the attack was not clear. The report, published by Damascus Now, a news outlet affiliated with the embattled regime of President Bashar Assad, claimed that military sites near the airport were hit Wednesday morning, and suggested that an initial investigation pointed to Israel. As a result of the alleged attack, a fire broke out and heavy smoke was reported in the area. Blasts were also reportedly heard.

Defense officials said that if an Israeli airstrike was carried out near the Damascus airport, it could indicate that Israel had detected a weapons convoy in the area. Israeli officials said in the past that transferring certain kinds of weapons to terror organizations like Hezbollah were, as far as Israel was concerned, "crossing a red line."The officials said that if an attempt to cross that line is detected, Israel will retaliate.
At the end of October, Syrian opposition forces claimed that the Israeli air force attacked facilities belonging to Assad's regime and to Hezbollah forces in the Al-Qalamoun Mountains in Syria, near the Lebanon border.
Late in September, after Russia began its air operations in Syria, the Israeli and Russian chiefs of staff met in Moscow and agreed to form a joint committee to coordinate their militaries' activities in Syria. The committee would coordinate both naval and aerial activities, as well as electro-magnetic activities, to avoid interference in electronic warfare, a senior Israeli officer told reporters at the time.

LG plans to launch a flexible OLED smartphone before the end of the year, the company’s VP of mobile has confirmed, though it’s unclear to what extent the work-in-progress handset will actually flex.

Flexible displays are the Future of IT Industry! A part from 4k and smart home appliances, the CES 2013 saw a lot of attention being drawn towards bendable, flexible displays. The elasticised display idea isn’t something new as we have seen hoards of device concepts being crafted around flexible, bendable and even foldable displays. These concept devices give us a futuristic feel, be it a flexible phone to be worn around the wrist or a phone that opens up to turn into a tablet or PSP-like device. But how far is this future? Nokia has been toying with the idea ever since we remember. The technology sounds very fascinating and the possibilities and the extent to which bendable displays could be used are vast and leave us spellbound. However, these have always been concepts and we haven’t seen any device materialise in the real world. There have been several technologies that were conceived in these years and all have been put to their practical use. But the bendable d
