Xiaomi smartphone with a ‘bendable display’ concept video leaked


When talking about smartphone innovations, fold-able or bendable displays almost always get a mention. A number of companies are already working on concept devices with foldable displays, and  one such company could be Xiaomi. A couple of photos and a short video clip has surfaced online that shows a bendable display in action and MIUI running on it.
This Xiaomi concept display was spotted on Baidu and it can apparently be bent backwards, forwards, left and right, GizmoChina reports. The 35-second video clip shows a display bent forwards, and we get a glimpse at what MIUI would look like on such a display. Before you get all excited though, we should warn you that this could be a concept or an ardent fan’s fantasy. After all, the photos or video don’t show any electronic components behind the display that are required to connect to a working smartphone. It just feels too good to be true, and we advise you to take it with the proverbial pinch of salt. There are rumors that the upcoming Mi Note 2 will flaunt a curved display, but it is unlikely to be anything like these photos. Instead, the display should be something close to what we see on Samsung’s Galaxy S7 edge and Galaxy Note 7.

Last year, according to a Korea Times report, LG Display was preparing for

Syrian Electronic Army claims credit for CBS Twitter accounts hack

Yesterday, several of CBS ’s Twitter accounts were hacked, including its main account, and its accounts for 60 Minutes, 48 Hours, and CBS Denver. The hackers got into the account and tweeted a series of things relating to President Obama and the United States being in cahoots with Al-Qaeda . The tweets also had links that led users to malware-infested sites. While CBS was able to regain access to its accounts, it was unable to figure out who was behind the attacks, until now. The Syrian Electronic Army , the same group that hacked 3 of the BBC’s Twitter accounts, claimed

Can Technology Do a Better Job of Finding Bombs?

 With the horrifying images of the Boston Marathon bombing still much too fresh in our minds, and with citywide marathons coming up this weekend in London, Hamburg, and Salt Lake City , law enforcement officers and citizens everywhere are asking how to prevent the tragedy from being repeated. As Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs adjunct professor Abraham Wagner observed last year, on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, there’s “no magic bullet o
