Samsung Smart Transparent Window is definitely something we had seen in Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible 4 and other movies.  Say what?  Remember Tom Cruise and his female coworker/agent had to chase the bad guys in his cool electric car?  I think it was an electric Audi, but I might be wrong.  His female coworker/agent had to pull up an interactive map or something like that through the car’s front windshield, and the front windshield was transparent enough which allowed her to peek through the front windshield and yet keep the interactive content visible on the front windshield.  Well, Samsung Smart Transparent Window has the same concept, except that it allows users to check weather and other contents on real window (i.e., a window inside a house).

Samsung Smart Transparent Window can also allow users to use a virtual blind to close the window.  In regarding to virtual blind, I think it’s cool, but I’m just worrying that some really bizarre, embarrassing situations might occur if Samsung Smart Transparent Window crashes, disengages the virtual blind and allowing strangers to peek inside whatever compartment which it supposes to shut out.

Anyhow, I like the idea of this technology!  Perhaps someday in the future when Samsung Smart Transparent Window is popular and cheap enough, I might install it inside my house.  Check out the video right after the break to see Samsung Smart Transparent Window in action at CES 2012.


WordPress Encourages Millions Of WordPress Members To Make Stance Against SOPA

WordPress is a gigantic free blog service which allows roughly around 60 millions of people to blog freely.  According to, WordPress has announced that it is against SOPA and PIPA.  WordPress even encourages its members to take actions against SOPA.  Perhaps, by that WordPress means its members should contact local representatives and state senators?  I don’t know much about PIPA, but I’d written extensively on how I’m against SOPA in previous blog posts of mine.  Anyhow, WordPress is truly huge, and with WordPress encourages its users to make a stance against SOPA, we can somewhat feel the movement against SOPA keeps on growing stronger.

Reddit is another popular web service which declares that they will shut down their web service for 12 hours just to protest against SOPA.  The Reddit website will go dark on January 18 from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM.  For your information, Reddit allows people to collectively and socially discuss, submit, and vote on headlines that they feel most important to them.

Some people suggest that to make SOPA truly dead, Google and Facebook must too support Reddit by going dark and placing links on members’ profiles to encourage members to contact their local representatives and state senators to protest against SOPA.  I think these people are making sense, because Google and Facebook are so popular that the protests from these two companies might create a real backlash against SOPA, putting a stop to SOPA effectively.  Obviously, Google and Facebook might lose a lot of money by just shutting down their websites for 12 hours.

I hope more people will speak up against SOPA!  WordPress users who support to put a stop to SOPA should write blogs to inform their blog readers why SOPA is downright ugly for the Internet.  You might not know, but EssayBoard is using WordPress, and now is even more proud of WordPress since WordPress has made a stance against SOPA.  WordPress is awesome!  For your information, besides providing free blog service, WordPress also provides free blogging software which you can download and install onto your web servers freely.
