In case you’re not tired of iPhone musings: as I was playing with the two‐finger zooming in Safari, I remembered Dave Hyatt’s April 2006 blog post on high‐DPI web sites. Eerily prescient in hindsight, he argues that web developers should make sure their images can scale — in anticipation of high‐res displays (like, say, 160 dpi) and browsers that let the user zoom in (like, say, Safari). The timing of the post makes me wonder just what Hyatt knew and when he knew it.


  1. Note that Firefox can also let the user zoom in images using the Image Zoom extension
