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.

I'd really love to know why I get modded down - anything wrong with my post? Or is at least Apple lying?

Not sure if they designed these ones, but on the first two ipads they had two manufacturers with visible difference between screens. If it was a single design, they would be identical. There's no such thing as "artistic" difference among manufacturers that could explain the difference when it comes to making a product following defined specs.

They didn't claim to design the displays user in iPad 1 & 2. And I guess their their ideas could still be combined with different production processes of different manufacturers. But at least the display of the iPhone 4 seems to be produced by LG exclusively.

OK, "Apple engineers helped developing" "or added some ideas" would probably be closer to the truth.

The sentiment on this board is that if you don't manufacture things yourself, you're basically a rip off of other peoples technology. Or at least you are if your company name is Apple.

What most so-called pundits fail to realize here though is that Apple often makes significant investments in putting together assembly lines at other companies to run these assembly lines for them - with technology they engineered.
