If we are serious about taking advantage of the black/white mode of the
display, there is a lot of work to be done. Turning off the backlights does
save a lot of power.
As an example, I challenge anybody to play Block Party in B&W mode. :)
Sorry for the clutter if this is already on the radar. Is there a checklist
for things like this?
Now that I think about if a bit....
When was the last time you saw a B/W display? I think it was pre-web for me,
maybe 15 years ago. Are there any good web pages on designing UIs for B/W
displays? Maybe some hints on designing for color-blind people might be
Is there a simple high-level API so a program can tell if it's running on B/W
or color? I'm guessing a few applications might be willing to have two modes.
This feels like a giant can of worms. I'm embarrassed that I didn't notice
it when I first saw something about the dual mode display technology.
These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's. I hate spam.
