iPhone 8 teardown reveals few surprises, but more camera details

The always hotly anticipated iFixit teardown of the iPhone 8 has arrived, and while it doesn’t harbor much in the way of surprises, there are a few tidbits you may want to know about hiding in there. Especially if you like hearing about things like “pixel pitch.” Basically, the phone is, as you might have expected, very much like an iPhone 7 with a fresh coat of paint (and super-glass). It comes apart much like the 7 did, although there are...

I have an SNES Classic Edition, and it rules

Just in time for a weekend during which I had already planned to do nothing productive, a small package from Nintendo containing what will likely be its hottest item since the NES Classic Edition … which is to say, of course, the SNES Classic Edition. A full review is now underway, but I thought it worthwhile to point out a few things. It’s just as tiny as the NES Classic edition. It has a larger footprint but it’s flatter.You can’t open th...

Microsoft confirms plans for a new flagship store in Regent Street opposite Apple

Shopping may be turning into an increasingly virtual experience, with people buying goods online and through apps, but there is no denying the power of a physical in-store experience — a lesson that Microsoft is taking to heart.

The perennial refrain of Android fans is that Apple is just adding stuff to iOS that they’ve had for years already in their mobile ecosystem. And it’s certainly true that Cupertino makes a point of waiting until it believes a technology is properly baked and the time is juuuuust right — or at least commercially judicious — to introduce a new product or capability, one which has likely already been in widespread use across the mobile platfor...

If you missed it Kuri debuted at CES last year, and has been steadily growing more capable in the intervening months. ...

He writes: I am encouraged by the steps that Apple states it has taken to...
