Dreamliner window reflections

Is it just me or do others find the reflections on 787 windows at night annoying? By that I mean for example on a night flight, you dim the window but you can watch your neighbours movie reflected in the window. Or you can look across the cabin and see what someone else is doing on the other side of the aircraft and individual reading lights are also reflected around the cabin.

Makes me wonder why Boeing moved away from the simpler and still effective pull down shades.

Cause window shades just aren't as cool...

May be the weight of the window shades was the reason?

I'm guessing the ability for the cabin crew to effectively "close" all the windows with the flick of a switch was the major reason for it.

That doesn't work if you're trying to watch a movie and you get annoying reflections coming into the corner of your vision

Only if you actually want to sleep.
