Bill Gates told a crowd at Microsoft’s CEO Summit last week that he believes that new developments in technology could help turn around the U.S. economy as companies look to ramp up production to meet growing demand. "The opportunities for innovation are stronger today than ever," Gates said, citing needs in health care, education and other fields that new tech could help address. Reuters (5/22) , CNET (5/22)

Now that plasma and LCD technologies are well-entrenched in the marketplace, TV makers are looking to light-emitting diodes to drive the next stage of growth in flat-panel televisions. Although TVs based on the technology still command a steep premium when compared with more traditional sets, industry watchers expect slim, low-power LED models to take over the market in the next four to five years.
