Users sue Apple over MacBook screen bit depth

This is very bizzare....

The reality is that notwithstanding Apple's misrepresentations and suggestions that its MacBook and MacBook Pro display "millions of colors," the displays are only capable of displaying the illusion of millions of colors through the use of a software technique referred to as "dithering," which causes nearby pixels on the display to use slightly varying shades of colors that trick the human eye into perceiving the desired color even though it is not truly that color.

Next thing you know, someone's gonna try to convince us all that our TV sets can reproduce thousands of aparent colors from just THREE.

Of course NOBODY would believe that.

Sony is under attack for their SXRD TV-s recently. Looks the big ones are in trouble.
Funny that after months of dispute in this forum about the obvious PQ flaws of the V1E progressive mode, no one ever thought of a class action against Sony. Well, the US model is not affected...:P

More info on the Sony case here:
Sony XDCAM EX1r, Canon 5DMkII, Røde NTG2, Røde NT1000, Røde Stereo Videomic, Sachtler DV6 SB on Gitzo 1325V, Steadicam Merlin, Omnitracker, Hackintosh 3.5Ghz Quad 8Gb RAM
