I go out on our back deck at times and read at lunch (I work from home) and works pretty good.
    I guess my complaints are based on my experience with the iPad and iPad 2. I guess that's how the THRiVE is, and I went outside today- the more you think the more you think it is bad. It wasn't that bad even in direct sunlight. About the battery life- I am paranoid. I have been measuring all sorts of things- one percent is six minutes without WiFi, six time ninety six is about nine hours and twenty four minutes. Hope my battery increases as I use it. It looks like my Thrive's battery is either defective or acting weird. I don't mind, it still is the most perfect device I've seen, and I can just buy a replaceable battery.
    gadget fanatic, and a thriveforums super mod.

    @ the electrician's tape on the display screen.

    BTW, I used a toothpick to apply black spray paint to the LEDs......cut the glare considerably!

    I took this photo prior to covering the charging LED. There is a very noticeable difference......
