Anecdotal evidence again... can you give us an example of "they" and a claim... never come across this problem with e-ink, was a problem with CRT and early LCD screens...
When you put an image on an e-ink screen, power is applied to turn relevant pixels clear (white) or black as appropriate and that's it... no power involved after that until you change a picture/text... the image stays until changed or wiped even if the unit fully discharges but as soon as power is applied for a new image/text then the screen changes...

So, what's your opinion?
