No. We acknowledged that a sharper display is a nice and welcome improvement (especially when compared to the previous generation of iPhones), but we never claimed it was the greatest thing to ever happen in technology.

Sub-pixel rendering is proving itself to be increasingly important when it comes to the sharpness of text.

We have not denigrated the display once. We're simply questioning the active marketing of absurd ppi figures. If its the case, so be it. We just dont want companies trying to claim that their display is better simply because of some ungodly ppi figure. Read more

Well with SLCD3, you're not talking about resolution, but the panel itself (and yes you want that). But wanting a 1080p display on a smartphone just because it's 1080p is dumb.

RT itself isn't that bad as a tablet OS. The web browser is PRETTY GOOD when it comes to page rendering and what not. I don't like the onscreen keyboard as much as the iPad, but things like app switching are superior IMO.

Not a new idea, no. But if Apple actually coded Mountain Lion itself to support the drive, it could be more effective than just plopping a Seagate Optimus XT in your computer.
