Apple hires ex-LG OLED display expert
Apple has hired a former senior researcher at LG Display, Dr. Jueng-jil Lee, reports say. Lee was reportedly involved in LG's efforts at working on a printed AMOLED TV. Before joining that employer, he is <a href="http://oled-a.org/news_details.cfm?ID=774">said</a> to have been responsible for development at Cambridge Display Technology (now part of Sumitomo), a company specializing in polymer-based OLED material.<br /><br />Lee's hire may suggest that Apple is working towards using OLED in one or more of its products. The problem with OLED adoption so far has been cost; the technology has been growing in popularity though, and could be less expensive in the sort of bulk quantities Apple demands. That would be especially important if OLED comes to a <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/278893==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/01/22/claim.comes.despite.doubts.elsewhere/" rel='nofollow'>rumored Apple TV set</a>, since most OLED TVs are out of the price range of the average shopper.

Apple playing catch up again...
Home screen widgets, configurable backgrounds, cut-and-paste, pull-down status bar to view notifications, and now OLED displays. What's next? a user manageable file system? User expandable memory? Mass storage mode? User replaceable batteries?...

Well at least we now know what Apple will claim to have"invented" next
