    If I’m not mistaking, Google Pixel has it’s own display. Not retina. It’s also a little higher in pixel density.

    • Ah. I was kinda thinking “retina” was just a tech term referring to the fact that the human eye can’t make out the pixels. But it does seem like Apple is trying to trademark it.

  • I want to mention during this episode a question concerning how to test responsive sites for ios devices came up and I would like to share my approach.

    Before i would visit a nearby best buy to test on their ios devices and ask friends with ios to tell me what they saw when visiting my dev Not very practical.
