Hello Again

Whew, It's been 3 years since my last update. I was busy moving to another island to make a new life and moving back to my hometown because my relationship didn't work well. So now, I am preparing to open my online shops (Indonesia delivery only- I will go public once it's succeed so wish me luck), creating my writing momentum, working as an admission, preparing myself to be a fully woman (stitching, crafting, cooking, etc).

I will still write here my updates about books and my store too, if it has something to do with books. if you have any other question, please leave me your comment. I will be happy to read it.

Have a nice life!

HP debuts a cheaper process for flexible displays

HP debuts a cheaper process for flexible displays

HP, in cooperation with the Flexible Display Center (FDC) at Arizona State University showed off a prototype display this week that is paper-thin, flexible, and extremely energy efficient.

The technology for a full-color "e-paper" display, the consortium said, is approximately three years away from even being field tested.

The FDC began work on a portable battlefield information screen in 2004 with a grant from the US Army. All of the current consumer "e-paper" devices (Amazon Kindle, Sony Reader, Plastic Logic Reader, etc.) use technology gleaned from FDC research, and the demo units are comparable to those commercially available E-ink displays: thin, light, and black-and-white.

So what exactly was HP showing off this week, then?

Since each flexible display is the result of a number of companies' innovations working together, HP's contribution is neither outwardly visible, nor is it simple. It is the lithographic process used in these flexible displays.

HP's Self-Aligned Imprint Lithography (SAIL) technology is a milestone for the project because it does not use photosensitive material to transfer patterns onto the substrate. In integrated circuitry, the photolithographic process can be used to build connections on the wafer, and the process often needs to be repeated on the same chip multiple times.

While displays were first completed using SAIL in May, the fabrication process is now ready for licensing, so third party manufacturers can produce e-paper displays without using photolithography, thereby stripping out a substantial portion of the materials cost in manufacturing.

Yes I know, some of you might read with eyeglasses because your eye needs help. But what about a new frame style from the popular online eyeglasses shop? I mean, seriously. This is almost Christmas and New Year Eve; you need a new frame for your eyeglasses. Well, if you really agree with me, why don’t you consider Holiday Glass Frames from Zenni Optical? It is good as you see above. They provide many selections of glasses and they are all varieties from $ 8 Complete Rx Eyeglasses. Why don’t you try to see?

Filosofi Kopi

Filosofi Kopi
Jakarta: Gagas Media, 2006
Ben is a coffe addict. He is crazy about coffee. He sailed accross the ocean just to figure out the coffe making and get the best coffees over the world. He consult to the expert baristas from Rome, Paris, Amsterdam, London, New York and even Moskow. He is the expert barista in Jakarta. Jody is his partner and girlfriend. She trust Ben and finally gave all of her money to Ben to make a “Kedai Kopi Ben dan Jody”.

This “kedai” has speciality for each coffee. Every coffee has its meaning, and it really is. People are attracted with this, so there are many people come to this “kedai” and become its loyal customer.

The challenge come when someone drink Ben’s coffee ordinary, without any expression. Ben was really curious and try to find what is wrong. The second challenge comes from a man who ask him to create a perfect coffee. This man offer a great amount of money, if he could give what he want. Could Ben win this challenge?

This book is a collection of Dee’s short stories. I must confess that “Filosofi Kopi” is my favorite short stories in this book, among the others. She is so smart and in my opinion, she is a coffee addict. If she is not, then she must be brilliant, because i could feel every taste of each coffe from her writing.

I suggest you, who is coffee addicted, to read this book. I gave it two tumbs up.
