The United States Patent and Trademark office recently published details regarding a Microsoft patent that relates to a two-sided smart device display system for phones and tablets.  The patent involves an integrated second low-power display, possibly E-Ink, on the back side of a smart device or tablet.  The secondary screen could allow a vendor to put less commonly used icons off of the main screen to free space or show other information not shown in the main screen.  The second display would use a low-powered processor to reduce the load from the main screen, helping with battery life.

Yet another player arrives in the world of cloud storage services.  LogMeIn has announced it has entered the cloud sharing world with Cubby which is built on LogMeIn's Gravity Data Service to compete against the likes of DropBox and other services.

Cubby is currently in beta and will allow 5GB of storage in the cloud, turning your MAc, PC and folders into "virtual cubbies."  You can sync data between devices or share access to specific cubbies for collaboration similar to services like Microsoft's Live Mesh or Sync.  The service is free and there is no limit on how much data that can be moved between machines.  Even iDevices and Androids are supported.  You can request an invite to the service from this link
