    Turn down the brightness? Otherwise... not really.

    Sometimes taking your sunglasses off helps... or is it putting them on.

    If you turn the brightness all the way DOWN and get the sun shining straight on to the screen from behind, you can get a useable view. Saves battery too!

    :eek: you're currently on a beach, but sitting at a laptop looking at macrumors?

    Anyway, as the guy above said, get the sun directly behind you and turn the brightness to 0

    or sit in the shade and turn the brightness full up

    or invert the colors on your screen by pressing cmd-optn-ctrl-8

    How cool is that????? I never knew there was a shortcut. That's great advice.
