    Why at night time you need less brightness to see your ipod screen clearly?
    But in the day time you need more brightness to see your screen more clear?

    This is something that always confused me.

    To put it in stupid terms:

    During the day there is more light competing with it so you need it brighter to overcome the other light. At night there is almost no other light so it has no competition and is easily visible.

    I can't believe I had to explain that, but I hope you understand it now.

    Because sunlight will reflect off the screen, diffusing some of the backlight from the iPod.

    Also, "most stupidest" is a pretty silly thing to say.

    Also, why is it that I have to go to sleep at night when I'm not actually tired, and when I'm fast asleep I have to get up to go to work. Work that one out.

    remember: keep your legs up and your pants down
