Apple will soon file a lawsuit saying they have rights to products selling out immediately.

<sigh> I'm such a hopeless tech-addict/consumer drone. I have no real use for the Eee Pad Transformer but I still want one. Maybe one of my friends will get one and let me play with it.

Apparently it has a hard glass screen, which is highly reflective and prone to pick up finger prints. Also, the display would be next to impossible to read outdoors, in bright light. Have I managed to put you off it yet?

1x anti-glare film: no more reflections, no more finger prints and you'll keep the screen scratch free too.

And who would want to read outside on anything but a transflective or e-ink screen anyway? I really wonder how many people who complain about the readability of such a screen actually use it outdoors (those times they go out to prove their point excluded).

wellll, given you live in a country that sees the sun on a WARM day, what? a day or two every decade? (hehehehe....teasing!!) how would you folks even KNOW what the Sun is compared to us in places like SoCal or even more southerly latitudes on south facing coasts/beaches because (above the equator anyway!!) our winter solstice sun sits higher in the sky than your Summer solstice sun does.

We here live in the sun, period. It's ingrained in our culture and we never think twice about it. Basically we feel if a persons wants to live indoors in doom & gloom move to the PNW, North Dakota or Northern NE. We are outdoors all the freaking time here. Well most of us who aren't from somewhere else anyway. So daylight reading is a very common activity here.

It's an interesting device, not for reading of course. But I think I do want one. Probably wait for the next iteration though.
