Also, you seemed to imply that you only get smudges on the touchscreen if you moisturize your hands right before reading?
I think you need a shiny new non-touch version
EDIT: D'oh, the previous 2 posts appear while I was typing mine. you guys are quick!
Haha no worries. No, I agree with you that the IR-based scheme does work the best with e-ink vs a touch layer, but it doesn't work flawlessly. That's all I was saying.
Reminds me of what Churchill said, way back when... : "Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time."
