I expect that 'Retina Display' is trade-marked and nospam is in error
applying the term as broadly as he just has.

Yup! You will not find Dell, HP, nor any manufacturer other than Apple
referring
to high resolution displays as 3Retina Displays2.

But you will find nospam doing that. That was why I was pointing out
that he should not do that.

bull****.

??? What is bull****?

what you wrote. duh.


Which part?

But you will find nospam doing that.

or That was why I was pointing out that he should not do that.

or That there is no reason why you should not do that.

Which was the lie?

Using 'Retina Display' as term which applies to all high resolution
monitors is exactly what Apple does not want.


which i did not do.


See Message-ID:

[Casagionnoni]
If an image is
produced by a sensor with the same resolution, then enough
information, as levels of red, green and blue, ranging from 0 to 255,
are obtained for each of the 1920 x 1080 = 2,073,600 pixcels, and the
image can be displayed accordingly. Now, if the number of sensor
pixcels are doubled in both dirrections, then the image is produced at
a higher resolution, and fully 4 pixcels have to be mapped into each
of the full screen display pixcels. In this case, the 4 should be
resolved into one, using some kind of round off scheme.


[nospam]
what you're describing is a retina display, except that it's a lot
more complicated than simply rounding off and may not be double
either.

--------------------------------

Not a mention of any manufacturer, let alone Apple. You straight out
use 'retina display' as a generic term for all high resolution
displays.


no. you *assumed* that.

yet another assumption.

nearly all hi-dpi displays are apple retina displays, with more than 1
billion sold worldwide.

dell wishes it could have sold a tiny fraction as many.

And Apple has registered "Retina" with the US Trademark off, the
Canadian Intellectual Property Office and in Jamaica. Use the term
'Retina" loosely at your peril.
