iMac with Retina 5K Display Review – Powerful Pixels

iMac with Retina 5K Display Review – Powerful Pixels

It takes a lot to stand out in tech these days, but the 2014 iMac with Retina 5K display manages it. Fronted by a frankly astonishing number of very, very pleasing pixels, it’s the all-in-one that’s already luring many away from the Mac Pro order page.

The ebook didn’t kill the paperback, and Amazon is counting on the fact that not only hasn’t the tablet killed the ereader, but that there’s still room for a premium model in the shape of the Kindle Voyage.

Facebook’s $19bn WhatsApp grab just cost it $22bn

The ink is finally dry on Facebook's acquisition of WhatsApp, and what a difference six months make, with the messaging app costing Mark Zuckerberg & Co. $3bn more than expected when first announced. Facebook had planned on splashing $19bn - made up of a combination of shares, restricted stock units, and cash - on its grab for the popular IM platform, but a surge in the social site's own value in the intervening period meant the cost was actually much higher than planned.

Hardly a surprise in Berlin this week - its three generations of forebears each arrived at pre-IFA show - the Note 4 nonetheless has plenty to prove. Read on for my first impressions.
