I think the reason we only see high DPI in cell phones and MP3 players is because the viewing distance is much closer compared to a computer. Didn't bother to read the article, but does the author take into a account the eye's ability to see detail in terms of arc? At a typical viewing distance for a laptop (100-140dpi) looks pretty smooth to me (20/20 vision). I'm not sure there is any benefit to 200+ dpi on a computer display at typical viewing distances.

Dinosaur Feather Color Discovered 219

anzha writes "Do you remember being a kid and told we'd never know what colors the dinosaurs were? For at least some, that's no longer true. Scientists working in the UK and China have closely examined the fossils of multiple theropods and actually found the colors and patterns that were present in the fossilized proto-feathers. So far, the answer is orange, black and white in banded and other patterns. The work also thoroughly thrashes the idea that fossils might not be feathers, but collagen fibers instead. If this holds up, Birds Are Dinosaurs. Period. And colorful!"
