This is purely conjecture on my part, but connecting the dots on the AFFS+ display ... Indigo Books and Music, here in Canada, is the majority shareholder of Kobo (either 59% or 60% - I've seen both figures quoted.) The CEO of Indigo is Heather Reisman. She's married to Onex Corporation CEO Gerald Schwartz. One on Onex's subsidiaries is Spirit AeroSystems. I wonder if someone along the way thought, "Hmmm, why not use an airplane cockpit display in Kobo's ereader."
