Chinwag's Old Blog: Reading Email on the Toilet

The traditional newspaper has always won hands-down in the go-anywhere contest with the web. You can't take the web or emails with you on the train (barring small-screened phones/PDAs or laptops) and taking it with you for some quiet-time in the loo wasn't entirely practical either. My suggestion at an office meeting for ethernet ports in our 'cubicles' wasn't greeted with much enthusiasm.

A company called E Ink Corporation are hoping to change all that. They've developed an electronic display that's a fraction of an ink thick and can be rolled, bent and twisted, almost like real paper. The possibilities this opens up in both the consumer and corporate worlds seems huge. One question remains...will I be able to eat my chips out of it?
