Review: Apple's iPad Pro with A9X CPU and 12.9-inch Retina displayrating

11/14/2015, 02:21:AM

The iPad Pro is Apple's most fully realized example yet of the future of computing, with a workhorse of a processor and a beautiful 12.9-inch Retina display packed inside a svelte, ultraportable design. Current limitations with iOS apps prevent it from being a PC replacement for the most demanding tasks, and at $799 it won't appeal to casual users, but we are confident the iPad Pro will carve out a niche in the high-end market.

Review: Apple's 21.5-inch iMac with 4K Retina display is great, but skip the slow HDD modelrating

11/03/2015, 10:21:AM

Apple's marketing team didn't need to dig deep to dream up a campaign for the new 21.5‑inch iMac with Retina 4K display -- its best feature is in the name. The stellar ultra high-resolution screen mates well with Apple's chosen internals, but it would have been best if the company didn't cheap out with the slow base HDD model.

The Grip&Shoot is a versatile Bluetooth accessory with a handle, trigger, and tripod mount, allowing for a steadier hold on your iPhone while taking pictures or shooting video. We think it could appeal to some videographers or people who want capture images remotely, but its dependence on third-party apps will be a dealbreaker for some.
