Apple's homepage [sometimes?] has this gray gradient background while other areas of the site do not. I think this background started appearing only a few months ago (iPad or iPhone 4 launch?) The background is not a smooth or finely dithered gradient but is composed of rather large gray dots scattered seemingly randomly. Could it be that this is an Easter Egg and there's some hidden message in the dot pattern? The pattern looks a bit like LiveScribe dot paper (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anoto) or MaxiCode and the like (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:MaxiCode.svg). Anyone, crack the secret? From my Apple sources, the message is saying "We like to delight and surprise our users, and so iPad 2 will have 2048x1536 resolution! - Steve"
