The new iPad shipped today, and a lot of reviews and comments are popping up. In the performance and mobile design world, those conversations revolve primarily around images in this new Retina iPad era.

The post created a lot of good conversation, and hopefully some standards activity too. At the end of the day, browser makers and developers share a common goal of making the web better, so this type of feedback helps.
In the last few months I’ve been giving several presentations about Mobile Web Performance in various venues such as Walmart, Time and others. I also had the honor of giving this presentation as a Google Tech Talk, and the google team recorded a video of this presentation.
