Don’t let looks deceive you.The new iPhones look the same as last year’s models on the outside. But changes on the inside matter, from camera improvements to new sensors that enable quicker access to tasks.
We had only about 90 minutes to try out the new Apple products unveiled Wednesday — not enough time, given that Apple Inc. has a larger iPad, a new Apple TV device and new software for the Apple Watch, alongside the new iPhone6S and 6s Plus. We weren’t able to test the new iPhone cameras in natural settings, for instance, to say whether pictures are really better with 12 megapixels, instead of 8 megapixels in the previous iPhones.

What I find interesting about Skylake is that it was designed together with Windows 10 according to Intel’s Kirk Skaugen. This may prompt many users to upgrade their computers so as to feature both the new processor [...]
Microsoft announced that Windows 10 will be headed to the Xbox One this November. The recently launched OS won’t be available in full form for console gamers, but rather boiled down into a controller and voice-friendly flavor called the “New Xbox One Experience.”
Out of the gate, it doesn’t seem to be much more than a hefty dashboard update. But, it’s one that might tempt you into digging your Kinect back out of storage. Major Nelson will likely go into detail of the under-the-hood features coming with the update closer to its launch. But the big changes we know about include a refreshed design focused on speeding up dashboard navigation and [...]
