New Apple Graphic Upgrade HINTS To Future Retina Mac Displays

I'm sure we are all familiar with the 'Mickey Mouse' pointer finger hands on the Mac OS... Turns out new high-DPI images that were discovered in OS 10.7.3 hint that Apple is planning to launch Retina Displays for the Mac in the (very) near future. 
Have you noticed that Safari’s hovering-over-a-link pointing-finger cursor looks a little different in Mac OS X 10.7.3? It’s not just that the finger is at a slightly different angle – it’s a new UI resource that scales gracefully to larger sizes. That’s not the only new high-DPI image resource in 10.7.3: the grabby hand in Mail, the camera cursor for selecting an individual window to take a screenshot of, and a few other UI elements got the high-DPI treatment in 10.7.3.
