I'm a 16:9 man
-- Gary Turk, gazing up wistfully at the actual sky
in unorthodox aspect ratios
it's pretty obscure, you've probably never heard of it
Tv's were cooler when they were sqaures
i mean, IT'S IN THE RATIO
the closer to square the better
or the newer 1.78:1? speak, heathen!
A time-served classic.
PEOPLE WHO have the wrong aspect ratio on their work PCs, so all the text is OBVIOUSLY squished up and wrong. What the WTF is up with them?
Resolution? That's a whole nother ball game. How about 1024x768 on 17" screen, which is a resolution of ~79 ppi, by my reckoning.
"Interestingly", GSMarena says that:
Galaxy V is ~233 ppi
iPhone 6 is ~326
Galaxy Note 4 is... ~515 ppi!
Apparently Retina Macs are "only" ~220.
or as i'm calling it this year, 20:15
I like the vistas. Something about that width feels like proper cinema.
