LCD makers agree to cooperate on environmental issues

Representatives from the world's largest LCD (liquid crystal display) manufacturing companies have agreed at a meeting in Tokyo to exchange information on environmental matters concerning display panels.

The companies came together under the umbrella of the World LCD Industry Cooperation Committee, a recently formed cross-industry group that held its inaugural meeting in Tokyo on Tuesday, said Tamotsu Harada, a spokesman for the Japan Electronics and Information Technology Association (JEITA), which hosted the meeting.

At the meeting, representatives from Sharp Corp., Hitachi Ltd., Toshiba Corp., NEC Corp., Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., LG Philips LCD Co. Ltd. and Acer Unipac Optoelectronics agreed to establish a communication channel through which the companies can exchange information regarding environmental technologies with an aim to producing more advanced display panels.

Specifically, the group will work on sharing information related to the disposal of waste LCD panels and in the area of reducing PFC (perfluorocarbon) emissions during manufacturing, JEITA said in a brief statement.

Together, the seven companies have over 90 percent share of the world market for LCD panels.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
