Apple It's one of those days again: Apple held a product announcement today, announcing several new products. The most important of which was rumoured about for a long time now: a smaller iPad. It's called the iPad mini, and has the potential to become the best-selling iPad - and thus, the best selling tablet.

Resolution independence is a solved problem. Where issues start to arise are on displays with different aspect ratios. The app will scale, but things will look different.

Windows 8 solves this by having a developer choose between letter boxing and showing more content.

Works well for apps (which likely will want to show more content) and games (which sometimes will prefer to letterbox).
