    it will blow your mind

    hey guys, i just learned something that will BLOW YOUR MIND!!!
    i dont know wheather i should really say anything, but its so cool that i have to share it
    some company[i dont know which] has made a new kind of semiconductor that is so versatile it can be used to put a LCD type display and programmable circuit board into a credit card
    obviously, this will allow for a huge advancement in technolagy
    think about it, if you have a lcd display on your credit card, you can press a button/contact point on it and see on its display how much is left in your balance, transactions today, etc
    or say its a reloadable gift card
    how many of you have thrown out a old gift card and wondered if there was anything on it?
    i heard this from someone that went to a meetingin the US, cant say who
    alsoo dont know which companies are involved, just want to share the info[and take the credit for the first online to know =3]
    oh wonderful people in the labs, what will you make next X3

    possibly
    im not too sure, i just know what a friends dad told me while i was getting a ride to my home
    at any rate, it sounds very much awesome, if can be made for computer displays you could probally have a roll-up light weight moniter for your computer or w/e device
    and think how much smaller personal digital devices will get
    or laptops for that matter
    the possibilities are virtually endless

    That's just simply too expensive, just stop being lazy and check how much money is on the damn thing,

    who says im lazy
    or that i have money to pay for a credit card or similar
    sides, its becoming sheaper and cheaper to manufactor things nowdays, look at the price of a gig of RAM in 200 as compared to now
    some things wont get any cheaper, but others can still get cheaper and more efficient

    I wouldn't be surprised if the LCD screen is more expensive than all the money that is on that card.
