Actually, rather difficult to extract text from, in my experience.  But
perhaps that's just because I refuse to use closed-source tools like
Acrobat.  (Someday, when my collection of round tuits fills out, I'll
build a PDF picker-apart.  But the PDF doc is something like a thousand
pages - and is, of course, itself a PDF file, leading to an amusing
chicken-and-egg situation.)

OLEDs?  I wouldn't want self-luminant digital paper - or rather, while
it may be an interesting technology, I wouldn't use it as a paper
substitute.  For a paper substitute, I want purely reflective.
