The world of technology is constantly improving. So to stay in the game, the leaders in the industry, Apple, Microsoft, and Google, are always improving upon their products.
The Power of the Retina Display
A great example of a company improving their products is Apple. They have made major improvements to their iPhone 4 and Retina display. With this technology Apple was able to offer its clients with the best quality video and clearest images that have been on the market. According to an article on Digital Trends the screen boasts a 2,048-by-1,536-pixel resolution. But Apple is not stopping there as the company plans on once again improving this technology.
Arming the MacBook Pro with High-Tech Visuals
So, what is Apple’s next move? They will release a MacBook Pro with 15-inch display and a resolution of 2,880-by-1,800 pixels. When pixels are increased to this density, the human eye can’t distinguish individual pixels. Images will have a smooth and continuous look. This advancement will make the screen almost twice as clear as present MacBooks.
Not a New Technology
The technology behind the Retina display is not actually new, according to Digital Trends. The U.S. Military has used it for its flight simulators for years in order to help train its pilots. Even IBM has used it for a few of its higher-end supercomputing systems. The change, though, is that Apple is pushing this technology into the mainstream. You can bet that after consumers get a good look at the images on the screen of the new iPad, they’ll demand even crisper text, video, and images on their desktop and mobile devices. And by doing this, Apple is once again cementing its place among the world’s technology leaders.
