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.

There is little to no difference when consuming multimedia or playing games.

There is a hell of difference when reading text. It's not because you do not use a tablet to read text that no one does. Let me tell you that when you read for hours on a lcd, sharpness counts.

I've read quite a few books on my Asus Transformer and, in fact, since I got it, my Kindle and my physical books have been gathering dust. I don't feel any eyestrain and never have I stopped reading because my eyes felt tired. Have you read any books on the iPad 3, to be able to make the comparison?

Regarding the 3 million pixels - did you know that an old 72 DPI dot matrix printer is just as high resolution as a 1200 DPI laser printer output held 2 feet from you if you hold the dot matrix sheet just 33 feet away from you when you read? Makes you wonder why anyone wanted something better when what we really needed was just bigger paper, right?

I'm guessing most people haven't had a chance to compare the iPad 2 screen to the iPad 3, but many have compared the iPhone 3gs (or earlier) screen to iPhone 4(s). Have you not?

Never let any facts get in the way of an anti-Apple rant, huh?
