In an uncommon proving of bipartisanship, your house unanimously passed a resolution to prohibit UN regulation of the internet at the hands of the ITU (International Telecommunication Union). It specifies that the US would “continue working to execute the position of the United States on web administration that clearly articulates the constant and unequivocal policy of the United States to promote a worldwide internet devoid of federal government control.” Put forth by Republican Senator Marco Rubio and Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill, the same bill got the thumbs up from the Senate earlier this year. Both bills are a show of opposition against a prospective change to the telecom treaty that could possibly expand control from telecom operators to internet companies like Facebook and Google. The 1988 treaty does indeed need an update, however US and Canada along with several EU nations have shown a strong need to limit any type of new policies from impacting how the web is run. Their efforts have so far been for naught, however Congress is hoping that such an unified position from the US will assist sway the ballots that are because of take place later this week in Dubai.

Well damn. If there wasn’t already enough fuel on the “new iPhone will have a taller screen” fire, 9to5Mac happened to discover something terribly interesting after playing with the iOS 6 simulator.
The full explanation can be found here, but in short they found when setting a simulated device’s screen resolution to 1136 x 640, iOS 6 would neatly arrange apps on the homescreen into five rows — a homescreen layout that the iPhone rumor mill has pointed to for the past few months.
Suffice it to say that wasn’t the case when they did the same thing in iOS 5.1 — all the app icons remained in four rows, though they were set further apart from each other to fill up that additional space. What’s more, changing the resolution in the iOS 6 simulator to anything but 1136 x 640 (and the standard 960 by 640, naturally) yields a sort of “iPad-like” layout with peculiar proportions.
It’s not exactly a smoking gun (finding a prototype unit a la Gizmodo would be ideal) but it’s pretty damning stuff nonetheless. Rumors of an iPhone with a taller screen have been circulating for what seems like ages now, and if that particular screen resolution sounds familiar, that’s because 9to5mac pointed to it as a likely suspect for the new iPhone back in May.
At the time, they (along with quite a few others) reported that a 4-inch screen would be doing all that pixel pushing, yet another bit of iPhone scuttlebutt that seems like a lock as we head into the final stretch. With a grand unveiling reportedly taking place just over a month from now, it’s little wonder that these juicy new tidbits are coming hard and fast — here’s hoping the suspense ends sooner rather than later.

Confusingly announced by Fujitsu, the Toshiba Regza T-02D will settle into a wall of similarly bright-colored, good-looking smartphones in NTT DoCoMo stores starting this week. The (Japan-only) phone’s 4.3-inch OLED screen holds onto a middling qHD resolution, but Fujitsu says its “new AMOLED Plus technology” will apparently render in higher clarity than any of its preceding smartphone displays — we’ll wait to see it in action before coming to any conclusions. There’s no word on who’s behind the dual-core 1.5GHz processor, but Xi connectivity (how Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo brands its LTE provision) makes a Qualcomm chipset likely. Fujitsu is also pushing the phone’s ‘human-centric’ Android skin, like what we saw on its own quad-core slab). This involves a collection of UI tweaks to the base Android 4.0 OS, including Intellicolor, where the phone will sense the color of ambient light and tweak the display accordingly. The phone’s 13.1-megapixel camera reaches an impressively high ISO level of 25600, running on Sony’s back-illuminated Exmor R sensor, while Fujitsu’s also channeled the ghost of the original Motorola Atrix, resurrecting a fingerprint unlock sensor. Other features worth mentioning include high-definition NOTTV compatibility, plus certified water and dust resistance. As is expected from the world of Japanese smartphones, there’s a selection of colors too — the T-02D will be available in Pink, Black and Blue from launch. Japan residents wondering exactly which company made the phone can try to get their head around the full release below.

By all means, we were quite impressed when we first laid eyes on NEC’s LaVie Z early last month, but much to our disappointment, details were a wee bit scarce at that time. Fortunately for us (and you), however, the company’s finally detailed the specs we can expect to see on its 13.3-inch Ultrabook. Among these are — you guessed it — Intel Ivy Bridge CPUs (i5-3317U, i7-3517U) and an above-average 1600 x 900 display — of course, let’s not forget it’s all bundled up in a 999g package, or about 2.2 pounds if the gram system isn’t your thing. As stated earlier, the LaVie Z will be Japan-only once it launches later this summer, though NEC has said it hopes to bring the Ultrabook to other markets at some point in the future. We’ll have to wait and see.
WWDC is just under a week away and a spec sheet appears to have leaked that details the next-generation 13-inch MacBook Pro. Chinese site Weiphone claims a US Apple employee snapped the spec sheet which hints at a 13.3-inch display with 1280 x 800 resolution and 2.5GHz dual-core Intel i5. Intel’s HD Graphics 4000 is also reportedly on board, alongside Thunderbolt and two USB 3.0 ports — indicating this is an Ivy Bridge refresh of Apple’s MacBook Pro line. The size dimensions remain the same as the existing 13-inch MacBook Pro, but the weight is up from 2.04kg to 2.06kg — suggesting there’s no new radical design on this particular model. The image also refers to OS X as “Mac OS X” rather than the simple “OS X” branding that Apple has…

Smartphone displays are becoming larger in size, and along with that, we’re seeing a nice trend that’s bringing greater pixel density. While LG Display’s newly-announced 1080p HD mobile display isn’t the most pixel dense that we’ve seen — a distinction that belongs to Toshiba — the five-inch panel is more appropriate for consumer applications and boasts an impressive pixel density of 440ppi. Its 16:9 aspect ratio was designed with HD content in mind, and the LCD technology isn’t anything to sneeze at, either: it’s a variant of IPS known as Advanced High Performance In-Plane Switching (AH-IPS), which is said to boast wide viewing angles, fast response times and improved brightness efficiency. Best yet, it seems that consumers won’t have long to wait before the panel works its way into consumer technology — the five-inch HD display is set for availability during the second-half of this year. To learn more of the Retina Display-shattering deets, you’ll find the full PR after the break.
1024×768 screens are a bit like Windows XP: there have long been better options, but they still remained the most often used screens on the web. That is, until now. According to the latest data from StatCounter, 1366×768 screens just surpassed 1024×768 as the most popular screen resolution used by the visitors to StatCounter’s global network of sites. Three years ago, 1024×768 still accounted for almost 42% of all visitors to the roughly three million sites that use StatCounter. Today, that number has fallen to 18.6% and 1366×768 screens now account for 19.28%, up from just 0.68% in May 2009.
It’s worth noting that these are global numbers. In Europe, the higher-resolution screens already overtook their predecessors late last year and in the U.S., 1024×768 still holds on to the top spot (but just barely).
Another resolution that is slowly declining in usage is 1280×800. This used to be an especially popular resolution on laptops, but most modern machines now offer higher resolutions.
For the most part, though, what sadly hasn’t changed much in recent years is the pixel density of these displays. This may change once Apple brings its Retina displays to its MacBook line, but right now, it’s almost as hard to find a small display with a very high resolution in a mainstream machine as it is to find a screen that isn’t widescreen.
Among those who will be happy to hear these numbers is surely Microsoft, which long ago decided that it would target 1366×768 as the standard resolution for Windows 8. To effectively use Windows 8′s Metro user interface, for example, 1366×768 is the minimum resolution, though it will run on 1024×768 screens as well. According to Microsoft’s own statistics, only 1.2% of active Windows 7 users currently have screens with resolutions of less than 1024×768 and just under 5% still use 1024×768 screens.

Question by Sticky: Is there a higher resolution HDTV coming out soon?
I was planning to buy a 50″ 1080P LCD in fall ’09; but with the speed technology advances nowadays, I’m thinking maybe I shouldn’t. I would hate to buy a 1080P and then a 1600P or similar comes out in 2010. I’m hearing things about this new OLED(organic light emitting diodes) that supposedly is the next highdef thing. How long will it be til the next step in high def arrives?

MacRumors has done something very bad – they went and got themselves an iPad 3 display module. Actually, it’s not so bad when you can apparently just order one online. Normally this part even being online and available ahead of launch would suggest it was a scam, but what matters isn’t the name of the part (could easily be a scam) but the part itself.
They took a microscope to it, see — and it appears to have exactly four times the pixels of an ordinary iPad screen. It’s really just the latest in a long line of “confirmations,” but it’s nice nevertheless to see the thing itself.
The display module is just that: the LCD component, divorced from any display driver, processor, or backlight (so rumors of an improved backlight are still unconfirmed, though very likely). But the pixels of an LCD are visible under light from the right angle, and under magnification it’s clear that for every pixel on the normal iPad display, there are four on this new one. You can see it quite clearly in the image above (on which, if MacRumors doesn’t mind, I bumped the contrast to make the pixels more clear).
The implications of high-res screens, on iPad and (as rumored) on the MacBook Pro, I discussed already in some detail. It’s clear that this will be a major selling point going forward, and I look forward to some of the slip-ups in the Mountain Lion developer preview that hint at how Apple will be adapting its OS to this resolution bonanza.
Some say, I want to add, that a better display alone is no reason to upgrade your iPad. In fact, we said that. But I disagree. I’ve written about the resolution improvement as an important component of a larger change in how digital content is created and consumed. Apple is pushing the hardware side of that and, to some extent, the software, though they are pairing both with restrictions that the content community will eventually reject. I’m already sold on the iPad 3, but for reasons that may not be relevant to other users. To each their own — but like when the original Retina screen came out, I suspect that when you see it, you’ll want it.
