It will probably turn into a product full of flaws and inconsistencies, then just as they perfect it, they will drop it and leave all their customers stranded.
Microsoft's work on "bendable or flexible" display technology is far more advanced than anyone realised. A new patent application from Redmond indicates it's inspired by a very familiar technology: the paperback book. Of the two claims, one (Application 2018/0113520, PDF, "Input based on interactions with a Physical Hinge") …
"Yes they are. See any Android phone - the list of patents being paid for even include expired patents and patents declared invalid."
Trolling is when you use patents with no intention of making a product. That Microsoft's patent portfolio varies over time doesnt make them a troll.
>> See any Android phone - the list of patents being paid for even include expired patents and patents declared invalid.
Only if the license in question was signed before those patents expired or were declared invalid. I seem to recall that Microsoft have about 200 patents that are infringed by Android. Most of which are used in their own products so they are not a patent troll.

Err no, MS only claimed, but did not provide a list of the patents they claimed were being infringed by Linux/Andriod and so no one was able to independently validate their claims; an important difference.
MS will use this patent (and others) to make claims and apply predatory pressure to frighten off others either working or investing in this space.
They are rather behind with the first idea of fold together integrated screens that was available in 2010 as the Entourage eDGe (9" screens) and the Pocket eDGe (6" screens).
Demonstration flexible e-ink units were demonstrated around the same time so this looks like microshaft trying to stop other manufacturers doing anything because oof the patents.
For battery life to exceed our current farcical limits, we need to move beyond lithium-based batteries.
I'm going to a conference next week, and want my laptop to last all day. I just popped out the standard battery and clipped in the high-capacity one. Still lithium, just bigger. Works just fine. +1 for Lenovo's removable batteries.
I bet you're one of those sickos, who try to demand other "options" than W10 too, eh?! One of those despicable characters installing AD BLOCKERS, refusing to share your personal data with respectable and honest ad-broker, one of those tinfoil hats who doubt BRILLIANT Alexa and snigger at FABULOUS Dixons customer service! I bet, you even proudly use a mobile phone that's more than 2 years old?! The kind of pervert who'd fight to his miserable end rather than sign up to the TOTALLY SAFE porn-age-verification system to save our children! Your kind truly SICKENS ME!!!
Well um would love to put True OS(PC BSD) and windows 7 as an option. FF with ghostly, no script and u Orgin. Alexa and cortna are banned in my house. Ok so my phone is only 18 months old, but I switched from Sprint's I cant give you service in a brick building to T mobile, but I bought the phone out right.
Poor giggles if you need to submit to age verification you are not doing it right . Tons of free porn on Google images :) Fingers her ad free browser.
Ok I do one normal thing. I use face book, but I installed the face book no tracker.
Ps have you tried using youtube with out an add blocker ?
They haven't started the porn verification yet. Apparently they couldn't get it up, or some other such suggestive expression that they read out on BBC Radio's "News Quiz".
Which brings me to the "laptop with fold-out screen" question.... where are the staples?
Folding screens I get, but magazines are not the perfect model I'd consider worth copying.
I remember magazines* where the well thumbed centre-page inevitably fell out - then the publishers switched to spines and glue, which solved it, then reduced the glue to save costs and brought the feature back.
* Not porn, surprisingly,
If any style in flexible screens is worthy of adopting, it's the classical scroll - but that might be a little more complicated for touch use on the go.
