i'm not the one applying it broadly.

yes, apple trademarked the name, but because they were first to mass
market it, it has become somewhat of a generic term, which i explained
in another post.


THat's dangerous to Apple's abiliy to continue 'Retina Display' as a
Trade Mark.

people 'photoshop an image' even if they use other software to do it.


It's still dangerous.


it's reality.

apple, adobe, google, etc. can (and do) say not to use it generically,
but they can't force everyone to do that.

people were calling non-apple mp3 players ipods.
the list goes on...


But you, as an Apple supporter, should not help put Apple's copyright
Trademark at risk.

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****?

THis from the guy who routinely deletes text when replying to posts
and justifies it by saying that if you want to know what was
previously there you should look up the thread.

i *always* quote the relevant context in my replies.

Your version of 'relevant'.

yep. i'm the one commenting so i get to decide what parts i respond to,
which are always quoted.

i delete what is superfluous. in other words, noise.

Once again your version of 'superfluous' or 'noise'. To make matters
worse you _never_ indicate that you have made such deletions.

that is complete bull****.


Are you claiming that you have at some time indicated your snipping or
deleting text in an article you are responding to? Can you point to an
example?


every post.


I must have missed that you have snipped text. Can you show me how you
indicate that you have done that?


better yet, ignore it.

Refuge of someone who's lost an argument.

nope.

like that part that you didn't snip. you didn't comment on it and there
is no need to include it. it's noise.

once again, you didn't snip superfluous text.


you on the other hand, do *not* snip when appropriate.



But when I do, I mark it e.g. "--- snip ---"

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