It seems to be heading in that direction. Also, quick and inexpensive
alternation of adverts is now one focus of attention. See, for example,
bendable thin paper < http://www.overclockersclub.com/?read=2136713 > that
acts as a monitor which consumes little power.
Computer and spyware, exploitation of cookies and the like are already used
to achieve the same in cyberspace.
