"if you are the creator of this pic, i have to say it is very cool! to think we came a long way as far as resolutions. I have a request though: is it possible to update it with an "eyefinity" resolution? i only ask because i think this is really cool for a background, but i have a 6048x1080p resolution for my desktop. thanks again!

[Reply from Robert Giordano]
Thanks, I did indeed create this image. Unfortunately, I don't think there is any "standard" Eyefinity resolution because, as far as I understand, you can configure up to six monitors in any number of configurations, to work as a single desktop. I currently own an HTC EVO 4G and it has an 800 x 480 display. I wanted to give an overall sense of scale to the common resolutions we've been used to for the past 30 years or so. I don't have the time to update this thing every week, lol.

Thanks again for the comment!"

"While you're listing 4:3 and 16:9 resolutions, you might as well point out the 16:10 resolutions too (1680x1050, 1440x900). Just a suggestion."
