Retina displays ruin your eyes

How about that for a clickbait title?

However, I come not to bury Retina displays. I come to praise them. The display on my new 15in MacBook Pro is just extraordinary.

The trouble is that you can’t go back to ordinary displays afterwards. You spend time thinking maybe the antialiasing is set wrong, or that the display is blurred, or perhaps you’ve accidentally set the zoom-in feature… I found this out when I repaired an old monitor just now, and attached it as a secondary display. Wow. It’s just… crap. And I once thought this monitor was the bee’s knees in terms of image quality.

Somebody should bring a class action suit against Apple. Retina displays ruined my visual perception. And I couldn’t be happier about it.
