The song of CES 2015

Hi, iMore! Anthony is busy editing together all the great video we've shot so far from CES; we've seen a few really cool things (almost-hoverboards! Microbial scanners with iOS apps!) and rest assured we'll have more on them for you very soon.

Comic: 2015 is going to be a huge year for Apple fans!

Ed: When the staff's away, it's time for some play. We're excited to introduce The Pixel Project: a weekly comic from Diesel Sweeties' Rich Stevens on Apple, technology, and everything in-between. This week: Product (and excitement) lifecycles. (All too fitting for CES week.)

NSFW: CES is dead? Not so fast

Despite a flurry of product announcements since the weekend, it's worth noting that the Consumer Electronics Show — CES 2015 — officially opens its doors today and runs through the rest of the week. So far I've read a lot of "CES is dead" style articles over the past few days, some from journalists who aren't going, some from those who are there and are just miserable about it.

I don't put much stock in any of that naysaying, and I don't think you should, either. Having said that, I think some perspective on CES is important.

How I pack for a tech conference

If you follow tech news at all, you might be aware of a teensy little event coming up in Las Vegas, requiring the talents of most of the iMore and Mobile Nations staff.

TWiT 24 hr. New Year's party videos!

I was in Petaluma, California, just an hour or so north of San Francisco, where Leo Laporte and the TWiT team did their annual 24 hrs. of New Year's party. That's where they start with New Zealand, the first time zone to hit 2015 and keep going until Hawaii, the last time zone hits it. It's a marathon, but it's all for a great cause — to raise money for UNICEF.

I joined in for Dance Central with Chad Johnson, badly, had a panel discussion on whether robots will one day eat us with Steve Gibson, Jeff Jarvis, and Randal Swartz, argued iPhone 6 vs. iPhone 6 Plus, gotten beat at chess, taught some Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to Leo, and played trivia with Paul Thurrott. You can find all those videos below, and the entire event at TWiT Live Specials. Give them a watch and, if you can, please donate!

What we want to see from Apple in 2015

With 2015 right around the corner, there's lots we could wish for. We could wish for the moon—or at the very least, a hoverboard prototype to show up at CES 2015. But as much fun as it is to wildly speculate on pie-in-the-sky ideas, we're going to travel a bit closer to Earth for our 2015 predictions. Here's what the editors of iMore actually want to see from Apple next year — unicorns and 50-inch Gene Munster-branded Apple TVs need not apply.

2014 year in review roundtable

2014 is nearly at an end, and what a year it was: New iPhones. New iPads. The 5K Retina Mac. iOS 8. Continuity. OS X Yosemite. Return of the Mac Mini. Tim Cook's Bloomberg piece. A lot's happened in twelve months, which means there's plenty for your iMore staff to reflect on. Here are our thoughts on our favorite tech happenings from 2014, our most reviled moments, the things we wanted but didn't get, and more.

At the Core: Holidays and the connected home

Greetings and happy December 29, iMore! The major winter holidays have mostly passed us by, and hopefully you've survived — and dare I hope, enjoyed — the family get-togethers, the excess food, and terrible party games.

Some of you are undoubtedly back at work today, while others are still enjoying the last fragments of a winter vacation. Me, I'm somewhere in-between. Clearly, I'm at work today (well, that, or robo-Serenity has gotten much better at writing columns in the last two weeks) but I'm doing so from my parents' new house, sitting on the couch in front of our Christmas tree.

It's a nice view — much comfier than my office back in Massachusetts. But staring at that tree today got me thinking. We're venturing ever closer to 2015, and 2014's technology has brought us ever closer to the ideal "home of the future". But I'm not sure if we're there yet.

The most important tech stories of 2014

The most important Apple stories of the year don't exist in a vacuum and neither do we. What happens in technology in general matters to Apple and matters to us. Through that lens, 2014 was both terrific and terrible. We saw new technologies enable us to interact and move in ways never before possible, and we saw those same technologies abused and degraded in ways we would have hoped impossible. In retrospect, 2014 felt like another transition year, but we've crossed the horizon: We can start to see the designs of the future, and more importantly, the future we want to see.

Favorite iMore videos of 2014

This year, Apple's most popular video wasn't their holiday commercial, but their iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus introduction (above). Given the pent-up demand for a new design, and the big and bigger screen sizes, that's not a surprise. iMore's most popular videos, based on your views, weren't a surprise either. Well, except for #1...
