Kindle's not so bad it seems.
I'm surprised e-ink looks so messy and crystalline; I thought it was a regular grid.
There's a layer over the hex grid called a diffuser. This is an E ink prototype; apparently the hexes are much more uniform now.
Cool. I wonder how the fiber of different paper qualities shows up at this magnification?
I saw one blurb pointing out that increasing the DPI much further on an iPad-sized screen would require so much of a beefier GPU to drive that resolution that you'd lose a lot of battery life.
The comments on that page are pretty entertaining. The Fanboy War starts with the first reply.
Why would rendering a truetype font to a high resolution display require a beefier GPU to the point of 'endangering' battery life?
I remain pleasantly surprised at how good the DÃ¼rer print/screensavers look on the Kindle.
And now I know who drew those screensavers. Thanks for that!
Do you know who are the other Kindle featured artists?
No idea, I can't afford an eReader at this point of grad school.
I want to see what those Iridigm^H^H^H^H^H^H^Hwhatever-Qualcomm-renamed-it displays look like under magnification.
And oil-drop epaper vs. black-and-white epaper, if that's still how they're planning to implement color.
I always expected the epaper "spheres" to be more.. "spherical." Is that why they're having trouble making it whiter than a TI-82's LCD?
