Re: Window view

"That's why on most aircraft they'll ask you to open them before landing/take-off, after that they're quite happy if everyone closes them and goes to sleep to make their lives easier. The Boeing 787 having fancy computer controlled window tint can just do that automatically."

I've only had that happen on one or two flights, and usually not American-based airlines, which is why I didn't see the evacuation angle. Probably because they work on the assumption of poor internal visibility anyway (eg. smoke in the cabin).
