    CAn you believe how huge the leopard icons are? I put coverflow as big as i coluld get it on my screen and i could actually read the fine print on the HDD icon.

    screenshot:

    for those who cant read it says:
    Internal Hard Disk
    Handle this hard drive carefully to
    avoid damaging the circuit board
    Make sure you are properly grounded

    The UI element textures and images are 400x400 as well. Hard to believe that the scrollbars we use are actually a large image scaled down :D

    Even the glyphs like the arrows, minimize/close/zoom icons, are all PDFs now.

    Icon Composer also has a new 256x256 image well :D

    Ah hell, I just realized Icon Composer goes up to 512x512, not just 256x256!

    You do realize that was a joke right?

    And yes, you're correct, it does actually say that. Crazy how high res these icons are.

    i was born in 1987 and even i know about the "paul is dead" conspiracy. in my mind the beatles will always be the greatest music group ever... even though i only have 3 of there albums and dont listen to them regularly.

    anyway back to the hi-res icons, i can actually see the calendar for july on the ical icon!

    now its hard to tell so i might sound like an idiot. But i was just wondering, does it actually say "blah blah blah" or couldnt you be bothered writing out the whole script of the ad??? and by the way, that is awesome that it says that.
