An experts claims that the New iPad Retina Display is so good that it actually exerts less strain to the user's eyes. The New iPad has a gorgeous Retina Display with pixel density so high that it is impossible for the human eye to discern a singular pixel. Looks like the expert's claim holds weight after all.
People use the iPad for a variety of tasks. While emailing, web browsing, gaming and using FaceTime or iMessage are the most common tasks, a majority also uses this tablet for reading e-books. Some people, such as myself, believe that books are meant to be read in print. The feel of actual paper against one's skin accentuates the whole book reading experience, something which a tablet can never recreate. However those who have bowed down to the technological revolution of our age use their iPads or similar devices each day for e-book reading. There's a big catch, though.
Even a person without no medical knowledge whatsoever knows that prolonged use of such devices is very harmful to one's eyes. That is why manufacturers strive for better technologies that push the usage boundaries ahead without posing damage to the eyes. Apple seems to have done just that with the new Retina Display, or so says the expert editor of All About Vision:
A key factor in something that’s called computer vision syndrome, or just eye strain from computer use, is screen resolution. The new iPad, with twice the resolution of the iPad 2, 264 ppi (pixels per inch) instead of 132, people are going to notice less pixelation, especially in a small typeface. It’s not just an enjoyment issue or an aesthetic issue, but it’s definitely a visual comfort isue, over time.
Amazon's Kindle e-reader has been the first and foremost choice of ardent e-book readers. Now it seems as if the New iPad will begin snatching away market share from that device as well. Lord help the other manufacturers, Apple's on a course of world domination.
