OK is there a tab completion?  Is it easier to chat?  If so,  I'm buying the ipad in the morning!

Actually...the only thing changed is the resolution...which only matters to those with the new iPad.  It's no longer fuzzy...and is crispy-clear like on the iPhone 4/4s.  Looks nice.

Some were hoping for other enhancements like more lines of text, selection tools changes, etc. Would be nice...but it's good to see the resolution update.

once you get used to the incredibly clear capabilities of 2048x1536, you get kinda spoiled... ;)

Yep. That's more than a MILLION pixels BEYOND 1080P blue-ray.

-Serious pixel pushing going on there...especially for a handheld device. Amazing, really.

Would any of you fine lords and ladies with the update be so kind as to post some screenshots for the rest of us who haven't been able to see just how clear it looks now? Especially Markuson? KrazyKyler and I (and no doubt a few others) are just dying to find out. :)

Chrillis, your iPad would be welcome to live in Markuson's foster family of 7 or 8 iPads. I'm sure it'd love the attention. :D

Edit: added the second paragraph.

I have no kids...so yes. You can be a foster child. ;)))))
Where shall I send it?

:)
Actually...while I do have a number of iPads...I only have two iPad 3's.  One...I use all day, and the other I use for demos, etc.  So unfortunately, you can't have it.  The others I have, I use for various other purposes. Some are mounted in my ffice, and others travel with me stacked with apps specific to a particular audience.

About screen shots... Most ppl don't even have computer monitors with enough pixels to handle a full res screen shot at 2048x1536..although the iMac 27" can. It looks basically identical to standard Galcon...but with pixels so tiny, you see no dots, etc.  It is a beauty. ;)

I've always thought that Galcon is a truly nice looking program...a work of art.  Certainly more so on th iPad 3.

Ummm, I would think that screen res could be reduced to fit the dimensions roughly, right? I mean, wallpapers on the internet are automatically scaled most of the time.

Of course. But what I mean is...if you spread those pixels out onto a biiiig screen of a computer...you really can't get a feel for how good it looks when the pixels are so small that you can't see individual pixels.  Spread on a big fat screen with big fat pixels...it loses the amazement factor.
