Reflections on resolution

We have reflections! They are even diffracted by the waves in the water.

Ok, the math(s) is bullshit and I'm almost certain that diffraction isn't even the right word but it's a great way of soaking up some of that excess graphics power on iPad2

It's a little sad really, iPhone4 and the old iPad can handle it perfectly well at reduced resolution but I think people are more worried about counting pixels than the quality of those pixels. Of course we could give iPhone4 owners the option to run in pretty-but-standard-res mode or more-basic-but-retina-res mode but people would just get confused wouldn't they?
