If someone's going to be too lazy to click a link to read the article, they're not going to read a re-post of the entire article either.
Sorry about posting the entire repost instead of just doing a link, I thought it would have been easier to quote and what not, instead of having to go to an entirely different page. My deepest apologies.
But yeah, it's not even something you have to believe only the OLED Association on, anyone is free to search the spec's of OLED technology and they can see for themselves the inaccuracies in AI's myth section. Contrast ratios, refresh/response rates, viewing angles, these are all simply facts, that beyond numbers, seeing the device in person is all you need to do. And these are not just small differences either, they are on the order of 100x to 1000x times or more in favor of the OLED. That's huge! I think it will be interesting when the iPods and iPhones move to OLED (which they will) and then what will be the fight? I'm sorry, but OLED screens aren't just slightly better, they are hundreds and thousands of times better, don't believe me, go look at one, if you need help finding one, check out the Zune HD, it has one.
Seriously though, no one should ever just listen to one place without question, and I would find it hard to agree that listening entirely to one source is healthy or the best way to get accurate infomation. I really can not imagine living my life just listening to one singlur person, and blindly trusting them, especially when there are countless other sources and even person experiences that say otherwise. I think it reminds me of all the irrational people who public try and bend reality, like the birther movement, those who deny evolution, those who think the moonlanding never happened, or those who believe the government wants to kill them with death panels.
I'm not someone who refuses to listen to reason or mounting evidence against what my beliefs are. If you actually have valid claims, and just reasoning, I will listen, and if you are infact accurate and your evidence overwhelms what I have previously believed, I will consider it, then granted with factual information I would even change beliefs that I formally thought to be true. Not doing what I just explained would be to believe that everything you know as of right now is everything there is to know. If you refuse to listen to anyone, especially reason, then you are set completely in your own ways, and at that point, what does anything matter to you anyway? If you are completely set in your mind, or someone/something you listen to is infallible in your view, then what is the point of thinking anymore, or even living. In this mindset, you are the holder of all knowledge or at least you listen to the holder of all knowledge which is irrifutable, why would simple trivial issues like the screen on an PMP matter to someone which such unfathomable powers? If I know everything with out needing to reference outside sources, I would probably be in some nirvana of bliss and peace, and petty matters like choosing a Zune or iPod wouldn't have any meaning to my grand mind. But, if I was just someone who was more realistic, like the few billion people on this planet, then I might be worried about a singluar source spouting off misinformation, because if someone didn't take the time to check out the facts of this source, they might fall victum to this misinformation, and believe it. But, of course, no one would want to spread misinformation, especially about a competing companies product. I mean what would be the point of that, especially when anyone can just search for the information themselves, and see that there information is twisted and wrong. But like I said, doesn't listen to me, or any one place, search for yourself.
