"If we're going to be consistent and advocate freedom of speech we have to advocate freedom of encrypted speech too. The genie is out of the bottle, cryptologically."
- Neal Stephenson

E-paper Newspaper  
  A paper-thin, flexible LCD-style display that is large enough to display a full newspaper page.  

At this point in the film, John Anderton (Tom Cruise) is trying to escape from his fellow officers. He boards mass transportation, hoping to lose himself in the crowd. As he enters the train, he is scanned and identified.

Within moments, his position is reported at Precrime headquarters.

"He's been idented on the Metro... His train makes two stops at Twentieth and Thirty-third."

"Send units to each location."

From Minority Report (Movie), by Steven Spielberg.
Published by Dreamworks in 2002

(Paper-thin E-Paper Newspaper changes content)

This was presaged in Neal Stephenson's mediatron from his 1995 novel The Diamond Age.
