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.

So, are you saying it's me or Mr Jobs that's spreading the "FUD" ?

Thanks for the vid link, btw.

They coined the term "retina" based on pixel density alone, not perceived sharpness at different viewing distances.

AND THIS IS ABSOLUTELY NOT TRUE!

and please do not play stupid...

Steve Jobs say: "It turns out that there’s a magic number right around 300 pixels per inch that when you hold something around 10 or 12 inches from your eyes is the limit of the human retina to differentiate… and at 326 pixels per inch we are comfortably over that limit." at WWDC in 2010.

Well sorry, boo-f--k*n-hoo.

It's still non-retina if it's below 300ppi, imho.... regardless of what you say.
