    I'm guessing not because of how Amazon makes a big deal about their tablets having it. Does it really make the difference that the competition (Amazon) says it does? If so, why doesn't Apple use one?

    Polarizing films are part of all LCD displays.

    This Mac news article seems to indicate the Fire employs some technology that its competitors do not

    If you try to read an iPad outside wearing polarizing sunglasses, you will see that there is something going on there. I have always figured that they use some sort of polarizing technology. Combine that with your own polarizing sunglasses, and the screen is very difficult to read.
