An L.A. law firm is suing Apple for false advertising. What's the claim? Apple says their new iMac monitors display "16,777,216 colors," but the modern-day Susan Dey, Harry Hamlin, et al. say the real number is a measly 262,144.
While we recognize false advertising sucks, we're curious about the actual numbers from a practical point of view. Photography experts, please sound off: does the human eye actually notice such things? This isn't a challenge, we're simply curious to hear your opinions.
I will say, I do remember having a box of Crayola Crayons as a child with 16 colors. For my eighth birthday this was replaced by a box of 64 colors, and it was like whoa--too many! Burnt Sienna, I apologize for not giving you your due.
