Mo’ betta colors, from Firefox & HP
(Dang, now I have that Ice-T song "Colors" in my head)
- HP’s new monitor eats your mere 16.7-million-color display for breakfast. For $3,499, the 30-bit (10 bits per RGB channel) DreamColor LP2480zx promises up to a billion colors per pixel. The display is aimed especially at people doing cinema post production & was produced in collaboration with DreamWorks Animation SKG.
- Firefox 3 is the latest web browser to support the colour managed display of photos with embedded ICC profiles, points out Rob Galbraith. "That’s the good news. The bad news is it’s turned off by default. Here’s how to turn it on." (For why all this matters, see previous.)
PS–The topic of color also makes me think of some cute profanity.
