The 4k future

So do you feel like an idiot for spending $1400 on a 30" 2560x1600 monitor, 7 years ago? Of course not. The 30" provided $1400 of content. It's going to continue doing so until a system capable of producing 4k video becomes affordable.

Making software look right on a 4k monitor is another matter. For now, it amounts to doubling the font size which looks right on a 2k monitor & hoping for the best. There's also examining the software in the Apple store. These monitors are 3840x2160, only 1.5x the resolution. There's no interest in slowing a program down with dynamically scalable assets.

No-one wonders anymore what technical challenges had to be overcome to make a 4k monitor. They just magically appear from South Korea.

Jack : Punching up the TV resolution to 4K is a great leap in the technology . I find it distressing that there is NO 4K content out there to take full advantage of this though . Nothing on the satellite networks , YET . The day that the content arrives , TVs will be at the 8K technology level .
