For those of you who watch for new lingo, you know that the web is the best place to see it first.
This AM I read a little bit about blog spam… dubbed “splog”. It’s where spammers send comments or posts to blogs embedded with links to get them posted so they go out to millions of RSS subscribers. I think a better term is “BLAM”. Because when blog spam comes it hits your server hard. I had 89 bits of blam in my Cyberwalker blog queue the other day.
Also in my travels, i cam across FOLED - that’s foldable organic light emitting diodes. OLED is a new display technology that promises to one day put cheap hi rez, low-powered displays on pretty much anything including uneven surfaces such as car dashboards. Maybe even cereal boxes. Or imagine wrapping a little table in OLED material and turning it on to produce white light and you have a self-lit bedside table.
So FOLED is OLED screens that can be folded or rolled up. Various companies are working on FOLED products so we can one day use our tiny mobile devices to transmit to big useful screens that we can put away in our pockets.
