Submission + - Using a laptop under bright sunlight

Phyllis Johnston writes: "Are you an outdoors geek? Well, I am. My new job allows me to spend my days away hacking in a comfortable outdoors space. Winter is gone and we are in the South, so the sunlight will get pretty intense soon enough. I have a problem, though: how can one use a laptop for extended periods of time under strong sunlight without killing one's eyes? I have tried a bunch of old antiglare filters, yet they do not work well with sunlight. I also found references online to hacks such as this one, but I don't think I would be able to focus in a public space while using such a cover. Have you found a way to be productive doing computer work outdoors in bright days? How did you do it?"
