WSJ: Android Is Coming To Virtual Reality

Report: Look Forward To Canon's Massive 50.6-Megapixel 5DS DSLR

It appears Canon’s high-end range of cameras will be getting two new models added to its line-up, the 5DS and 5DS R. The stand-out feature of the new DLSRs are their enormous sensors, which should weigh in at 50.6 megapixels, double that of Canon’s current best in the 6D, 5D Mark III and 1D C.


HTC One M9 Specs, Price, Release Date: Everything We Know So Far

Last year’s HTC One M8 was one of the, if not the, best Android phone of 2014.

Everything We Think We Know About iPad Air 2

All done with the iPhone 6 now, yeah? Good, as it’s time to look forward to Apple’s new iPads instead. The iPad Air, introduced last October, was a significant change for Apple’s tablet line, which (while making it slightly easier to imagine what to expect from the next model) makes it more difficult to guess what ground-breaking changes could be in store.
