The real world has never been more real, with the latest proof being the release of the much-hyped Retina Display on the new iPad from Apple . This new tablet screen, boasting a jaw-dropping 3 million pixels of visual goodness , promises visual clarity greater than that capable of being processed by the human retina. In a review for The Washington Post , Joshua Topolsky compared the new Retina Display to "glowing paper." The display on the 9.7-inch screen boasts 1 million more pixels than HDTV. You get the idea - the image is so bright, you gotta wear shades . And it’s not just Apple.

A year after you leave college, no one will care what your GPA was. Once you fully understand what you want, it’s not usually that difficult to get it. At all stages of life, people will gladly offer you unsolicited lists of things you “must” do, be, or have. Most of the time you can nod your head, walk away, and ignore them. You don’t have to live your life the way other people expect you to.
