16:10 is really the perfect aspect ratio for nearly all purposes. I wish apple adopted this ratio for the iPad, iPhone, Monitors and the upcoming Apple TV. One universal aspect ratio and just three resolutions for ALL Apple devices. 960x600 or 1280x800 for iPhone. 1920x1200 for pretty much everything else. 2880x1800 for anything they want to brand as retina other than the iPhone. I find 16:9 aspect ratio is way too narrow. 4:3 is good vertically but looks off horizontally and it's not great for watching movies and not as universal. 16:10 also happens to be very close to the golden ratio considered ideal for the human eye. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_ratio I really wish Apple would just bite the bullet and switch over to this ratio for their next generation of devices so that it will become the one universal standard by iOS 8.
