Hardware, Embedded Systems You have these products and/or technologies that everybody expects to go mainstream, yet never really do. You know, things like desktop Linux (+14 troll), ARM-based netbooks, and... PixelQi screens. Yes, these wonder displays are supposed to take over the world, yet, we've only ever seen them on demonstration devices - never on shipping products we can, you know, buy. At Computex, PixelQi once again showed off its display technology on demonstration devices.

I'd prefer to apply the "trespassers will be shot, survivors will be shot again" motto around the main doors of the company which managed to sell that horrible concept ^^

Inventing something bad is no big deal, as long as the responsible silently disappears. Selling it so well that it kills a good competing product, on the other hand...

Agreed. I specifically opted to buy a more expensive Benq monitor, simply because I refused to buy one of those OOOOH SHINY!!!!1!1! glossy pieces of crap. No annoying finger smudges, no glares, and a hell of a lot easier to clean once it does get dirty.
