The new Apple Macbook Pro with Retina Display has a screen resolution of 2880×1800 pixels.
That is insane.
Unfortunately, if you own a Retina Display computer and have visited a website that is not Retina Display ready, images can look a little fuzzy and blurry. This includes more than laptops. Certain smartphones, tablets, and portable devices also support a hi-res screen. You don’t want your website to fall behind as Retina Displays and Hi-DPI devices become more prevalent in households.
In this episode of PressThis PressThat we look at two plugins that allow you to turn your WordPress powered website. The first plugin we look at is Simple WP Retina by our studio’s own Jon Desrosiers. The plugin goes head to head against WP Retina 2x by “Jordy Meow”.
We will also explain the purpose of Retina plugins, how the code works with client and server-side use, and which plugins to use for special scenarios.

In the world of SEO and Internet marketing there is only one website. The alpha. The omega. The Google.
I know I speak a lot about the myriad of changes that Google has made to make searching easier for the user and more difficult for the business. The other day, it was announced by Matt Cutts, head of search spam for Google, that the next update to Google Penguin will not be a welcome one for those of us SEO guys and gals.
And with a 66.8 percent share of the search market, there would appear to be reason to shake in our black and white hats.
Amidst all of this diversity, however, I welcome the change. Here is why.
