Apple And it was that time of the year again - Apple held one of its product announcements. This one focussed on the iPad mostly, and while some will call it a disappointment merely because virtually everything had already been leaked, I'm still in awe over the fact the newly announced iPad has a 2048x1536 display. My mind is blown.

That means the DPI was set incorrectly for the screen.

A 12pt font should be the same size (as in, stick a ruler up to the screen to measure) no matter what the resolution of the monitor is.

Doubling the screen resolution should not halve the size of text onscreen. If it does, someone screwed up the configuration.
