I didn’t get the utility of a device with a curved display. Many of you also wondered the same thing when we reported over the weekend that Apple was working on 4.7-inch and 5.5-inchÂ iPhones with curved displays.Â
The idea of a curved iWatch from Apple landing in 2014 is not as far-fetched as it may appear. According to Reuters, Apple smartphone competitor and LCD supplier LG is working on a flexible, curved display for smartphones. Though details on the company’s smartphone is sparse, it is supposedly mass producing the curved displays now in preparation for a November launch.
As awesome as AirPlay is, it does have that teeny weeny little flawâ€”it’s proprietary to Apple. Now, wouldn’t it be great to have something likeÂ AirPlay that could run on TVs, set-top boxes, or Internet-connected home theaters that gave the same easy discoverability andÂ even more features (like letting a TV launch an app on your phone)? That’s way the open-protocol DIAL is shooting for and they have some pretty big backers in YouTube and Netflix.
