Bendy

From the January 22, 2009, issue of The Economist. The article is titled “Bend me, shape me, anyway you want me.” Bendy is a much older word than I would have guessed, 1486 according to the OED.

“By using flexible components, these screens will also become bendy.”


A reader in the comments section repeats the word.

“January 27, 2009 18:20
Dear Economist 3.5-4 pages about bendy screens is too much. Whatever happened to your reports about antimatter, black holes, and all the interesting physics?”
