That's the most common complaint about the visaplex, the black wash and 200ms refresh. Also the greyness takes awhile to get used to. As a kindle owner I'd switch to a non backlight technology if it gives me color and options for watching video. The kindle app on the iphone is pretty popular, I couldn't do it, my eyes would get too tired after looking at a laptop all day.
FTA... "We think OLED will work better than other technologies. There's no need for a backlight or a polarizer nor stacks of optical film,"
Also complaining about the return on public domain books is sad since anyone can get them for free from gutenberg.org, manybooks.net and many more. If that's your money making plan you may want to rethink your product.

Also, Amazon better watch out, when the creater of the glare free screen for the olpc comes out with her changable epaper/lcd screen for netbooks who will want an ereader anyway.
"Expect your users to remember passwords without writing them down."
I cannot tell you how many people write down the password on their notepad (always left on the desk) or a sticky under the keyboard.
I always suggest using the first letters of a line from a song with a few numbers. St Peppers Loney Hearts Club Band 67, splhcb67 If you can't remmember a song you might want to stay home.
The admins don't really care either, they just don't want to reset passwords.
We even use a generic word for the type of work we do as a password for other companies websites. Like bank for a bank. It's pretty sad considering the damage that could be done. Money, reputation, and not to mention private research representing years of experiments.(not mine I just code)
