On the same day that NASA astronaut Don Pettit captured this image of a Lyrid meteor blazing toward Earth as the International Space Station sped over the Gulf of Mexico at 5 miles per second (17,500 mph), a four-ton boulder burst through Earth’s atmosphere at 18 miles per second (64,000 mph), exploding over the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains near Sutter’s Mill, California. This week scientists confirmed the surviving chunks are carbonaceous chondrites, the most ancient rock in the solar system.

So with even a $399 tablet doing 2560x1600 pixel displays, can we please just make that the new standard laptop resolution? Even at 11"? Please. Stop with the "retina" crap, just call it "reasonable resolution". The fact that laptops stagnated ten years ago (and even regressed, in many cases) at around half that in both directions is just sad.

I still don't want big luggable laptops, but that 1366x768 is so last century. Christ, soon even the cellphones will start laughing at the ridiculously bad laptop displays.

And the next technology journalist that asks you whether you want fonts that small, I'll just hunt down and give an atomic wedgie. I want pixels for high-quality fonts, and yes, I want my fonts small, but "high resolution" really doesn't equate "small fonts" like some less-than-gifted tech pundits seem to constantly think.

In fact, if you have bad vision, sharp good high-quality fonts will help. #noexcuses
