hi,

when do you think we will se retina updates for our magazines/newspapers?
As far as I can tell only the NYT has update theirs and The New Yorker only has the first two - three articles updated, the rest still looks horrible on the new screen :/

Do you think they will redo their approach, e.g. have text as real text etc. or do you believe they will have us download 2-3GB issues?

cheers

Vector text that scales to resolution avoids the issue of having pre-render text for 2 different iPad screens. It's not so easy with graphics, if I am not mistaken. Despite significant upscaling, pixels can't be added if there aren't there to begin with. I just hope more publications will move away from scanned PDF approach and make an effort to make their tablet issues optimised for devices.

Along these same lines, is there a good comic book reader (free preferably) that either takes advantage of retina or now looks amazing on it?
