    Does that mean that 720p videos and 1080p videos need to be upscaled and will look worse?

    I don't know about the iPad, but Upscaling on the PlayStation 3 has been pretty nice. It makes my DVD movies look great. :)

    I never thought I'd see someone complaining about too much resolution when watching videos. It's not like videos are meticulously arranged pixel-by-pixel anyway, like raster graphics can be. I'm sure they wouldn't look any worse.

    Not at that resolution but 720p on a 27inch imac starts to looks a little pixelated but that screen is to small to notice.

    Video doesn't really suffer from upscaling in the same way that raster graphics can.

    No, they will not look worse. They will look mostly the same, although a slight bit better. The physical space the screen is will stay the same, but will be able to show much, much finer details.
