One iOS Icon Is Larger Than The Entire Original Macintosh Screen »

A good comparison to show how far screen technology has changed over the years.

Here are some numbers to blow your mind: The original Macintosh, released in 1984, had a monochrome 512 × 342 pixel display. That was 175,104 points. Today, the icons on iOS are 512 x 512 pixels, drawn from a 16.7 million color palette plus 256 levels of transparency.
