OS X Yosemite design language: Explained

Back in October of 2012, senior vice president of industrial design, Jony Ive, became the person in charge of all design at Apple, both hardware and software. As a result, iOS 7 got a down-to-the-pixel interface update that set the iPhone and iPad up for the future, but left years of "back to the Mac" consistency behind. Apple simply didn't have the resources last year to redesign OS X at the same time. This year they do.

iPhone 6 vs Galaxy S5 vs HTC One M8: Camera shootout!

The iPhone 6 features the same 8 megapixel, 1.5 micron, f/2.2 iSight camera as its predecessor, the iPhone 5s. However, both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus feature an all new sensor that includes focus pixels, and an all new image signal processor (ISP) thanks to the Apple A8 chipset. So in traditional fashion, I stacked the iPhone 6 camera up against two of the hottest Android phones on the market, the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One M8. From low light to HDR and back again, here's all the samples you need to see before deciding which smartphone camera you want in your pocket next!

A macro look at the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in micro-fine detail

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are brand new takes on Apple's iconic design. They're bigger, thinner, and their edges are rounded. The camera rises now from the casing even as the screen glides seamlessly into the edge. And the screens have gone from Retina to Retina HD to even denser Retina HD. Combined, how much of a difference does all this make? To find out I grabbed a Canon 5D Mark III and an EF 100mm F2.8 L IS USM Macro lens, and I shot the iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 alongside last year's iPhone 5s at every angle. Enjoy!

The Revolv Hub is the center of your connected universe

If you have more than one connected device in your home, chances are you'll also have more than one app to control said devices.

The $299 Revolv hub sets out to automate all of your connected devices — from lights to door locks to home audio — all from one streamlined app. It's great if you're already loaded up with a bunch of connected devices, but if you only have a few, you may not even need it.
