This is slightly old now, but a wonderful illustration of why prototyping is so valuable (I'm a huge fan of prototyping, and I find platforms like Drupal invaluable for this). It also illustrates why large groups of very smart people can sometimes fail so spectacularly.

Linus on the right track here. I had to specially order my Vaio a couple of years ago with 1920 x 1080 resolution and now find it difficult to work on anything less - this about the realistic minimum for two documents side by side. And even I find I need a second monitor. I find it amazing that so many laptops have such low resolution. 2560 by 1600 about the right goal to aim for I'd say.
 
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

The apparent successor to Google's App Developer looks very nice - will see how my kids take to it later.
