May 27, 2010 – Today’s most interesting stories in technology, media and entertainment:

Human Computer Viruses: Mark Gasson, a British scientist, was wondering what would happen if the computer chips in surgically implanted prosthetics got computer viruses — so, he infected himself with a computer virus to see. Sound funny? No one is going to thinks it’s funny when computer virus on a wireless network can kill you. It may sound like science fiction, trust me, it isn’t.

Flexible Video Screens: Sony unveiled a new flexible organic video screen that you can roll around a pencil and unroll when you need it. Commercial products are a few years away, but start thinking about sheets of paper that play video.

A Swiss technology company is suing them for unauthorized use of their anti-piracy code. Warner Bros had no comment. Wow, you really can’t make this stuff up.
