A Brief Look at Screen Resolutions "In comparison to the fixed-​​versus-​​fluid debate, the argument about designing for particular screen resolutions has been quite tame these past few years. When designers say that a site is designed, or optimized, for a particular screen resolution, they’re actually talking about the resolution of the viewer’s monitor. In the past, the screen resolution debate was focused on whether our designs should still accommodate monitor resolutions of 800×600 without displaying a horizontal scrollbar." via DesignFestival

3D: FPR vs. Active Shutter "All currently available 3D displays take 3D imaging and visualization and try to apply it to our eyes, instead of on the object itself. Our eyes and our brain were designed to perceive three dimensional objects. That’s why we have two eyes: one on the left and the other on the right. The three dimensional object is viewed from slightly different angles. The difference between what the left eye sees from what the right eye sees is called parallax. The brain combines the two different visual information and the parallax between them to see three dimensionally." via DisplayBlog

Motorola Droid Bionic "The Motorola Droid Bionic sports a 4.3-inch 960×540 LCD with a PenTile Matrix 2×2 sub-pixel structure. Photos and videos look very good on a PenTile Matrix display, but where it falls short is text. The iPhone 4 has a RGB-stripe 960×640 LCD." via DisplayBlog
