PaperTab is the revolutionary 'paper' tablet. You probably figured that computing tech would get smaller and more powerful. But how about thinner? And if you thought of that already, how thin did you figure? Not PaperTab thin, I bet! Forget e-books that mimic folding a page. You can really do it on this future tech. Incredible. Watch the clip.
'Intel®, Plastic Logic and Queen's University work together to revolutionize tablet computing
Cambridge, UK and Kingston, Canada - January 7, 2013 - Watch out tablet lovers - A flexible paper computer developed at Queen's University in collaboration with Plastic Logic and Intel Labs will revolutionize the way people work with tablets and computers. The PaperTab tablet looks and feels just like a sheet of paper. However, it is fully interactive with a flexible, high-resolution 10.7" plastic display developed by Plastic Logic, a flexible touchscreen, and powered by the second generation Intel® Core i5 processor. Instead of using several apps or windows on a single display, users have ten or more interactive displays or "papertabs": one per app in use.'
J. Keys spazzes, dropping a calculated lyrical rant that just happens to make a lot of sense. Keys pokes fun at those that often seek to put a label on his music. Fueled by the high powered Eddie Kendricks sample via Kariem Riggins, lyrically Keys delivers as always promising KeymoTherapy is on the way.
Be on the look out for the forthcoming "KeymoTherapy" Mixtape from J. Keys

EMI's debt to Citigroup offers "an extremely stable and flexible financial structure," according to an internal email from chief executive Elio Leoni-Sceti sent to all EMI Music staffers and obtained by Billboard. The email, apparently intended to quell fears and rumors about the company's financial health, was sent yesterday after the Wall Street Journal published an article about Terra Firma's latest infusion of equity into EMI (called an "equity cure").
EMI's debt with Citigroup, explained Leoni-Sceti, is what is often called covenant-lite. This means the debt carries with it flexibility in dealing with deviations from agreed-upon covenants. The frequency of covenant-lite deals soared between 2005 and 2007 - the year Terra Firma acquired EMI - due to the high amounts of liquidity in credit markets. The availability of credit reduced the power lenders had over borrowers and their ability to intervene when covenants are not met. Critics warn that these deals may be harmful because they prolong lenders' ability to intervene at the earliest signs of trouble.
In some cases, a covenant-lite deal will allow the debtor to add equity to the company in order to meet a certain loan covenant. For example, a loan may carry with it a requirement of a certain debt to EBITDA ratio. If the company does not achieve that ratio, it is allowed to infuse equity into the company to count as EBITDA, thereby meeting the covenant and averting a breach of the deal. EMI's memo provides no details on the specifics of EMI's debt to Citi and which covenant the equity infusion impacted, but it does say the equity came from a fund set up for Maltby/EMI specifically for this kind of need.

Subject: REPORTS ON EMI MUSIC'S FINANCES - from Elio Leoni-Sceti
Over the past couple of days, there have been some misleading and inaccurate media reports about EMI's financial position. You may receive questions from artists and business partners.
The facts are as follows:
EMI's financial structure
EMI has an extremely stable and flexible financial structure. Our debt, which is provided by Citigroup, is what is known as 'covenant-lite', in other words there are no traditional covenants.
Normal corporate loans have covenants - if a company breaches them, the lender automatically takes control of the assets. Instead, under Terra Firma's agreement with Citigroup, we have some financial ratios that we are tested on at certain dates. If those ratios are not met at the required times, our holding company Maltby injects small amounts of additional investment capital which are called 'equity cures'.
