Weekly Photo Contest: Up close and personal

Photo submission by buxna

It's been awhile since the Weekly Photo Contest focused on macro shots. There were so many up close and personal shots in last week's Birds and Bees contest, and they are just so fun to look at, so I figured it's a great time to revisit that format. So get in nice and close, take your best shot, and maybe you'll be the winner next week!

The contest begins now and ends Tuesday August 12th at 11:59 PDT. Good luck!

It's also time to announce the winner of our last photo contest! This was so difficult, because every photo was just amazing! The winner is...

What's your next dream Mac? [Poll]

What's your next dream Mac?

The Mac is doing great these days, not only growing faster than the PC market as a whole, but growing where the PC market pretty much isn't. The craziest thing about that is this — Apple hasn't even introduced new consumer-level Macs for a while. Last year's new Mac Pro aside, all we've gotten lately is spec bumps on the existing favorites. Part of that is due to Intel's continued delays of the next-generation Broadwell chipset, but whatever the reasons it feels like the already successful Mac line could get even more successful when new models start to hit the stage. So, here's the question — which next-generation Mac are you most looking forward to?

The fabled Retina MacBook Pro, whether it's a beefed up MacBook Air or a slimmed down Mac Pro, seems to be hit hardest by the Broadwell delays. We keep hearing it's coming but it still hasn't arrived. It would have higher density than the current 13-inch MacBook Air, but likely at the expense of its tremendous battery life. It would be lighter than the current 13-inch MacBook Pro, but likely at the expense of its sheer power. Could it be the best balance of both worlds?

Best iPhoneography of the week

Image submitted by iMore reader formerglory

Every day, millions of photos are taken around the world, and a good chunk of those are taken on an iPhone. It's no wonder why — the iPhone is super portable, has an amazing iSight camera and an incredibly easy to use Camera app. Combine that with the ability to share photos instantly via Twitter, Instagram and other social networks, and you have the perfect solution for capturing and publishing any moment imaginable. So, each week we're going to scour the social networks for uplifting, inspiring, touching, and all around amazing photos using #iphone #iphoneography #vscocam and similar hashtags and embed the best of what we find. And since iMore has an Instagram account now, if you really want to get our attention and get featured, use #imoregram to make sure we don't miss it. Enjoy!

What's your perfect iPhone 6 screen size? Find out!

There are rumors that the next-generation iPhone 6 from Apple — expected to arrive something this fall — will sport a screen size of 4.7-inches, and maybe 5.5-inches as well. That means it'll go from the old 3.5-inches and current 4-inches, which are now on the small side of the phone size spectrum, all the way up to middle and potentially large. From mini to maxi is broad range though, everything from easy to use with one hand to big enough you might not need a tablet anymore. That's why we asked the question — what's the perfect iPhone screen size for you? Well, here's your answer!
