If refresh rate and ghosting is reasonable for scrolling I could see myself using it. For movies and games I would just turn on second monitor.

I literally read all day, this would be fantastic. Books. Visual media has subtitles and usually is something I'm gonna Google further while watching/playing. I mostly consume text based social media and news.

.... fuck I think I just want a newspaper

Much cheaper, no electricity required, no ChatGPT generated clickbait horseshit AND you can kill flies!

I'm seeing a lot of "ai" generated trash in the paper now :(

I feel like this could be a lame drinking game when bored: Is it AI generated or just bad/lazy writers?

Ooh I’d be great at that. I was trying to buy a pan on Amazon (I know…) and I scrolled past the reviews… without reading any of the words, I identified the first review I saw (not the LLM-generated summary, an actual review) as being LLM trash. I immediately said “AI” to my partner and we read it… they laughed when it ended up being OBVIOUS AI trash. I can tell by the shape of how words are laid out at this point apparently hahaha

Almost all of our GUI software was designed with high refresh rate screens in mind, so it can be clunky to use e-ink ones. If we had GUis based on section changing, instead of scrolling, it wouldn't be a problem. On pcs, using the page up and down keys can be a workaround, but on phones, it's complicated.
