Hmmm, I could take the sun-fading unit I'm sending back and put it in my 3T MRI

Only trick would be figuring out some kind of rig to keep it from flinging across the room and jamming into the far reaches of the donut. I think my bosses would be mad if they had to quench the magnet

This reflects off a question I'd had previously --- could one make a stylus which would directly manipulate an e-ink screen (say even if it were turned off) --- this would've been useful for hacking the Esquire e-ink cover ad (just re-program the electronics so that when it was turned on it blanked the screen), then one could have used it as an electronic slate.

It certainly wouldn't be as bad as a floor cleaner.

well, it's kind of hard to make a decent EMP, but I think that depending on how the pulse hit the reader it would probably go all black or all white, but then I'm not sure what happens to the ink when the unit is shut off, so maybe it would go all black and then white, but maybe not cause when you turn off the reader it sets it to white where it stays until the charges recieve a different set of charges....................well, that's my thinking for the day

Nothing. The screen that was displayed before shutting the power off is still displayed afterwards.

would it really matter at the end, if there is no one left to view the result of the experiment ?

My thought is for the survivors who straggle out of their bunkers and organic farms in the country.

Absolutely! I volunteer *all* your e-ink readers as the test devices!

Ain't no one getting any of *mine*, that's for sure. Not *my* preciouses!
