Doug Kass (the poster boy of the evil side of Wall Street) has immortalized himself as his last name is now part of the English language.
From the comments following Philip Elmer-Dewitt's piece, I learned that you can call a stupid analyst or hedge fund manager a "Kasshole". If you make up numbers, you can say you pulled them out of your "Kass". And if you lost money by selling shares early based on a FUD spreading shyster, you have been "Kassed". I am sure that your imaginative readers will add to this list.

Looks like your eyesight is better than mine I have been using it for a week and I have yet to notice the grains which you saw, it is not that I have not use an iPad 3 before.
Retina is great for text but other than that well your meat is my poison.
No disrespect meant.

I got mine last Monday. And I have to agree that all this talk about the lack of a retina display is lost on me. The screen is amazing, with clear text and sharp graphics. Reading is very easy on the eyes(and mine are over 60). Not only that, it's fast in response to commands. And the sound is surprisingly good!

Captain, tricorder readings indicate this is a colon-based life form.

When the iPad 2 was introduced, nobody complained that its screen was grainy. The Mini has the same number of pixels in a smaller screen, which means that the ppi is higher in the Mini. Logically, the Mini's screen should appear sharper than the iPad2's.
If anything, the Mini should look better than the iPad2. The mere fact that a higher resolution screen (Retina) is available does not make the Mini's screen 'grainy'.

Don't get me wrong Logic Pro 9 is a fantastic DAW with a good plug-in architecture, but there is much that could be improved in Logic X. Logic X on the iPad would be unbelievable.
