NOW you're asking about LCD monitors that literally
change color if you look at them from a different
angle. Gate weave is now a NEAT thing to put into the
picture. 

What is next? Gee, those scratches are really cool?

Ouch

I agree!

During my career at Kodak, I worked on tools to help reduce the color 
variabililty (LAD, TAF), keep film spotlessly clean (PTRs) and make film 
more scratch resistant.  I helped write the ISO standard that tightened 
perforating tolerances by a factor of two to improve steadiness.  And 
now...my life's work is for naught!   ;-)

But don't worry, at least Kodak continues to try to improve image quality, 
with new tools like the Kodak Display Manager System to aid in monitor 
set-up:
