Looking at this photo of the inside of the 380, I noticed there is no IFE in one whole row. Is this an exit row or something coincidental with the FA seats being in the same row but on the sides of the airplane? Seems like a very boring row seeing as there are no overhead monitors that I can see, how would people that paid for those seats get their IFE?

That's the emergency exit row. Row 92 upstairs.
Like most things on the A380 it's very wide and you'd need binoculars to see the screen in front. I guess the folks in that row have pull out screens from their armrest. Those people on the side seats don't have a window either.

I confirm : it's an exit row at the upper deck (so lot of legroom for these seats) and there is a personal screen for each of those seats (it's located "under" the seat and it's released by pushing a button.

I just got off my first A380 flight (it happened to be on AF) and I sat in this row. The PTVs are located in the armrest, as mentioned above, but they aren't released by a button, there is just a little 'rope' thing that you use to pull them up. I personally didn't like the row at all, as the cushions are thinner than those on the other seats, and of course there is no view (if you're in the middle like I was). There was not one seat open on the entire aircraft, or I would've taken a window.
What was truly, absolutely, astonishingly, flabbergastingly, ridiculously unbelievable was the noise levels inside, even at the back where I was seated. At takeoff power, I could only barely hear the engines. I had heard and read about 'reduced' noise levels in the A380, but the noise levels are not 'reduced,' they are virtually eliminated.
