The only reason Applel bought NeXT was to re-aquire Steve Jobs.

Applel had nothing to do with NeXT computers.

MacOS is still the only desktop OS that does high PPI perfectly

Yeah comparing a 5K display with some 1080p display is the same thing.

mactoddlers universally don't understand the difference between font rendering vs having a high PPI display
See what you don't understand is that macos has shit font rendering, which is why high PPI displays are absolutely necessary for them to not look like total shit. Meanwhile every other OS on the planet has decent to great font rendering and look fine even on low PPI displays.

The resolution was the same. Do you not understand the difference between UI scaling and resolution?
I thought this was supposed to be the technology board. Maybe I'm on /v/ again by accident.

NeXT was the same shit as Apple, it just didn't market primarily to retards.

The resolution was 2880x1800 for both photos. There was no resolution scaling either. Both photos show the screen running natively at 2880x1800. The only difference is the size of the UI elements.
This isn't a very hard concept, though I guess for Jow Forums tweens it is. Probably because your computer can't even do something like this without obvious visual errors.

Okay, assume the top screen is 7680x4320, and the bottom was 2880x1800. Does it change anything?

Ian Hughes

I assume you shit in the street because there's no way those two are both running HiDPI at the same resolution unless you're intentionally running a distro from 2005 or some shit that doesn't support HiDPI.

If you take a photo of a high PPI screen very close up, and a photo of a low PPI screen very far away, will they look the same?

The iPhone UI was a much better pocket computer interface than any other before it, that's why it took and expanded the market, and inspired any other successful GUI that came after.

be based jobs
gets booted from his own company
it's cool.. kinda mad, but starts another company.
develops a machine that was pretty fuckin kick ass for the time and had a great operating system
meanwhile at apple..
desperation for a new and stable operating system is needed
all their efforts were cancer
realize jobs' NeXTSTEP is pretty fucking awesome in comparison to apple's lame efforts
apple drives several semi-trailers full of cash
apple may have bought NeXT, but it wasn't their idea or creation, captain faggot.

1080p is somehow better then 5k just because Apple has the latter? God you PC fags are pathetic.

Next you are going to tell me that the iPhone was nothing new because tablets existed before then.

i wonder how history would have gone if NEXT was never bought by apple

Gabriel Lee

they probably would have bought Be instead and died in the 2000s without Jobs to help properly diversify them beyond desktop/laptop computers

Landon Davis

NExT was never successful. They were on the verge of failure when Apple bought them.

Defined the smartphone UI, tablet UI, and smartphone UI, made the three categories mainstream. There's more to a product than raw technology (design, marketing, distribution, etc) - Steve Jobs learned that the hard way when NeXT computers sold poorly.

I meant smartwatch UI for the third.
