“Screen burn-in isn’t an uncommon issue, but it does seem especially worrisome that it’s showing up within a week or so of these units coming into usage. It’s also possible that what we’re looking at here is image retention instead of actual screen burn-in. If that’s the case, then it’s not as permanent. Neither one is good, but ‘ghosting’ goes away where burn-in may not.”

I don’t even know what to say about this. Screen burn-in – or even “image retention” – after a week? This is laughable, and it’s a shame, because it would be a good thing for Google to become a serious competitor for Apple to be pushed harder to innovate.
