    Pebble does not use ePaper displays. It achieves a certain likeness to ePaper displays through memory-in-pixel LCDs on its smartwatches, both old and new, but it's not an ePaper display like the one the YotaPhone uses. But unless it can improve on that technology further, perhaps manufacturers should consider something ...

    What's said to be billions of dollars will not go to Oracle because of today's federal jury ruling. All ten members of the panel agreed that Google's appropriation of 37 Java APIs in its development of Android fell under the "fair use" clause of copyright law.

    Several days ago I stepped into the Pocketnow family with a heartfelt piece on Pebble and how I thought that their future might be a little murky.
