Apple's Town Hall is small, almost intimate. A stark contrast from the cavernous Flint Center. It was a smart choice for the October 2014 iPad and Mac event. When updates are subtle and dense, it's good to see them close up. That was the case with the new iPad Air 2, and even more so with the Retina 5K iMac.
Apple may have dropped a ten-ton-hammer of news on us yesterday with the announcement of the 5K Retina iMac, but what everyone was really waiting for is finally here: the iFixit teardown. With their usual vigor, iFixit has taken this gorgeous display and picked it apart, piece by piece, in pursuit of documenting each and every component inside.
Console gamers everywhere have been enthralled with Shadow of Mordor, an action-heavy game based on the universe created by J.R.R. Tolkien. While we don't have a mobile version of Shadow of Mordor to play, Kabam and Warner Bros. Interactive released a Middle-Earth game of their own – Lord of the Rings: Legends of Middle Earth.
Disney is planning to release a mobile game on November 3rd based on its upcoming animated film, Big Hero 6. Titled Big Hero 6: Bot Fight, the game looks to be a "match 3" style puzzle game that allows players to do battle with enemies by matching similarly colored blocks together.

OS X Yosemite introduces the first major interface changes to OS X in more than a decade. Yosemite offers flatter iconography, a cleaner design and better typography more suited to the increasing number of Macs with Retina displays. One change Apple's implemented is an optional "Dark Mode" that inverts the color of your menu bar and makes the dock darker too. Here's how to get the most of it.
Apple's venerable Mac mini is its least expensive Mac model, and a good entry-level system that's an attractive option for PC users making the switch to the Macintosh. It's long overdue for a refresh, but at Apple's October Mac and iPad event, it finally happened. The Mac mini has finally joined the rest of the Mac product like with Intel's "Haswell" fourth-generation Core processors. Here's what you really need to know about the new Mac mini.

Apple has commenced taking pre-orders for the iPad mini 3 and iPad Air 2, both which were announced yesterday. If you've been eagerly awaiting for the Apple online store to come back from having gone down for 'maintenance', now is the time to get the wallet out and prepare for some serious clicking/tapping to secure your new iPad. The Apple Store is currently quoting 2-4 business day ship times for the new iPads, but we imagine that will slip to longer times in short order.
Belkin has announced that it is updating a number of its accessories for the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3. These include new verisons of their Qode keyboard accessories, along with their Slim and Stripe covers.
