With every tech-focused website dedicated at least in part to the Apple rumor mill, it’s gotten pretty hard for Apple to really drop a surprise on us when it releases a product. But at WWDC this month, it did, and now many of us are weighing our options when it comes to purchasing the new RetinaBookPro.
We already know that it’s going to take the web a little while to catch up to the new display. Browsers must be updated to handle Retina text, and images that once looked normal will look shoddy under the harsh light of Retina—which brings me to a question. If web developers must provide double-sized images in order to accommodate newer displays, as this Demian Labs post suggests, doesn’t that mean we’ll all be soon downloading more MB per month thanks to Retina optimization? What effect will that have on our networks? On our broadband costs? Share your take with us through the comments, tweets, and Facebook of Wired Insider.
