iPhone 6S might stick with 8MP camera hardware

iPhone 6S might stick with 8MP camera hardware

After the launch of Apple’s impressive new iPhone 6, a lot of attention was paid to the refresh. Many assume the iPhone 6S (if Apple sticks to their existing naming scheme, which isn’t a foregone conclusion) would have a camera that packed in more magapixels, and an updated chipset. The megapixel rumor was bolstered when Sony announced a new DSLR-ish sensor for mobile devices, which many believed would find its way to the iPhone 6S. A new report says that might have to wait, because Apple is keeping their 8 megapixel shooter for one more year.

OnePlus drops invite system, sort of

OnePlus drops invite system, sort of

Though the strategy seems to have worked great for the OnePlus team thus far, they've begun letting their guard down, just a bit. The invite system will be stoppered for just a few Tuesdays, that is to say. Starting on February 10th, the OnePlus One will be offered up for sale in two editions. Two rather specific editions, one with 64GB of internal storage and a Sandstone Black exterior, the other with 16GB of internal storage space and a "Silk White" exterior.

Apple Watch app: spanning the grid

Apple Watch app: spanning the grid

The Apple Watch will be released this April - but before then, we'd like to get you prepared to understand how you'll be using this piece of technology. It's not difficult - Apple wouldn't create a product meant to be hard to use, of course - and its user interface is mostly going to be based on the device itself, not on your iPhone. Working with our own knowledge of the device mixed with the dive released by AppleInsider today, here's what you're going to need to know.

Nexus 5 back in stock at Google Play

This week Google has slapped the naysayers with a re-stock of their LG-made Nexus 5 smartphone. This device has previously been offered in Black, White, and "Red", but it'll be appearing now in Black only. This device will be available in 16GB internal storage size and 32GB internal storage size, with applicable pricing to match. This device sits alongside the Nexus 6 and the Nexus 9 as Google's three-smart-device lineup. All other smartphones and tablets, Google Play Edition and everything, are gone - probably for good.

Raspberry Pi 2 promises 6x the power, 1 GB RAM, same price

Raspberry Pi 2 promises 6x the power, 1 GB RAM, same price

The Raspberry Pi has been quite popular at democratizing the DIY board and reinvigorating the maker culture. Since its launch, however, there have been many rivals that have tried to take a bite out of it, some perhaps more successful than others. RPi, as it is lovingly called, is out for revenge and it will be delivering it through the new Raspberry Pi 2 model B, the successor to the most recent B+ model that kicks things up a notch thanks to a new BCM2836 chip.

Here’s how you get Microsoft HoloLens

Here’s how you get Microsoft HoloLens

You can't just go out and buy Microsoft Hololens to experience Windows Holographic for Windows 10. Not yet, at least. There's no solid launch window - nothing extremely specific, that is - as of yet, but we do have a few clues jump off from. One is word from JPL Labs at NASA at the California Institute of Technology - they suggest they'll be getting HoloLens units in July of 2015. Does this mean we'll be seeing developer units inside this year? Very possibly. What's not so likely is the idea that we'll get consumer units in 2015.

Acer C740 Chromebook hands-on: 11.6-inches of hearty computing

Acer C740 Chromebook hands-on: 11.6-inches of hearty computing

Earlier this month we got the opportunity to go hands-on with Acer's newest Chromebook, the C740. The Acer C740 Chromebook works with an 11.6-inch display, has been aimed at 1:1 school programs for students, and comes with a reinforced hinge for long-lasting durability. In addition, Acer is revealing the C910 Chromebook with a 15.6-inch display. Both machines are made with the same reinforced body made for extra-active user deployment. Both Chromebooks work with reinforced covers that can withstand 60kg of force. Their corners can tolerate 45cm drops without damage, as well.

Designer controls MacBook with nose, bypassing arm injury

Designer controls MacBook with nose, bypassing arm injury

A designer by the name of Michelle Vandy has begun using her nose to do her job on her computer. Instead of using her arms, wrists, and fingers to tap into graphic design, she's rigged up a tripod, a stand, and an Apple Magic Trackpad to construct what may be the world's first "Nose-pad." Without the use of this Nose-pad, Vandy might otherwise have had to give up on design altogether, entering a different working field where she'd not have been able to use her talents to such a fine degree.

Xbox One price back to $349 after 8 days back on $400

Xbox One price back to $349 after 8 days back on $400

Back in November of 2014, we first heard rumblings of Microsoft bringing the Xbox One's price down to $349 for the holidays. This would include the console by itself and/or a game or games to go with it. Not long after the price drop was confirmed, Microsoft suggested things were going well - the console was jumping off shelves. It was suggested by analysts that the price drop might become permanent. Come last week, the pricing returned to normal - but not for long.
