So Steve says the iPad has an IPS display. What is that? Is that similar to OLED?

During today's unveiling of the Apple iPad, Steve Jobs says this device has an IPS display.

Is this similar technology to OLED? I hope it's the same type of screen that other devices such as the Driod use. And it's not just the same old display technology of the iPhone.

    In-plane switching (IPS) was developed by Hitachi Ltd. in 1996 to improve on the poor viewing angle and the poor color reproduction of TN panels at that time. Its name comes from the main difference from TN panels, that the crystal molecules move parallel to the panel plane instead of perpendicular to it.

    This change reduces the amount of light scattering in the matrix, which gives IPS its characteristic wide viewing angles and good color reproduction.

    In this method, the electrical field is applied through each end of the crystal, but since this requires two transistors for each pixel instead of the single transistor needed for standard thin-film transistor (TFT) display, it results in blocking more transmission area, thus requiring a brighter back light that consumes more power making this type of display less desirable for notebook computers.

    OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) is a light-emitting diode (LED) whose emissive electroluminescent layer is composed of a film of organic compounds.

    Its just a traditional LCD screen. Same as what the iPhone has. IPS is the best version of LCD, but its not a big deal since everything already uses it.

    at first, evolution is a lie. era. God informed us he created us and there is lots evidence of it. all of us recognize what God says is actual, we've faith it and thats it. issues could evolve and alter over the years, yet on no account into an entire new species. in case you place a canines in chillier climates, over an prolonged time, they'll enhance extra thicker hair to guard them , that's sensible layout via God, consistently looking out for us all, even His animals. suitable designed. yet that canines will on no account exchange into yet another style of animal> ITs nonetheless doggie dna. purely like if a guy needs to be a woman, and he has his genitals decrease off . no count what he does, or what clothing they placed on, he nonetheless has male dna whilst examined. we are who God created us to be, yet no longer all will stay as much as their skill. Cant blame God tho, He tries to let us know. so a approaches as this elephant is going, this become an exceedingly neat video. thank you Sandy for sending it the place all of us can see. There nonetheless isn't any evolution. yet, this video exhibits that animals are way smarter than ppl think of they are> God created them too, submit to in recommendations? in addition they have concern and emotions too and needs. whilst an animal kills for food, it isnt becuase they are purely propose, its area of the food chain God designed with a view to no longer have any aniamals overpopulated and ravenous to loss of existence. the only reason we've ravenous human beings immediately is by technique of the greed of others. there is adequate food in this international to feed us all, regardless of the undeniable fact that it manages to in basic terms bypass to three. that's no longer how God designed it. the reality this elephant must be knowledgeable, is purely destructive absolute evidence as to the supernatural workings of God that coach with God all issues are available in. To God be the honor in all issues. thank you Sister Sandy. Sister Shirley
