DISCUSSION

I don't get the whole argument for e-ink displays and the Kindle. I understand that e-ink displays are supposed to be easier on the eyes, but I have starred at a much larger and brighter display than the iPad's for 8+ hours a day for the past 9 years at work and haven't been uncomfortable or noticed any strain on my eyes, even on longer days.

Furthermore, I pretty much do all of my reading on a backlit LCD screen (cinema display or iPhone) without noticing this horrible strain on the eyes that e-ink is supposed to solve. Are my eyes just super awesome or something? Will this affect my vision later in life? Is there something here that I am not understanding?
