But the only camera review that you really need to check out is Austin Mann’s, a professional photographer who took the two fresh iPhones on a trip to Iceland to see what their cameras are made of. In the process, he grabbed plenty of photos (like the one above) and videos to highlight the new camera features, detailing all of Apple’s improvements that might not be that obvious to regular users.

Home Depot has just confirmed what was previously rumored, that its recently announced credit card data breach may be of bigger proportions than the attack suffered by Target late last year. Reuters reports that the retail chain announced that 56 million payment cards were compromised in the attack that lasted for a few months, much longer than the Target heist – the same hacker group is believed to be behind both attacks, and many similar others targeting payment terminals in U.S. stores.

Apple is months away from releasing the new Apple Watch, so the device’s actual retail box is still a mystery.

In the wake of iOS 8, the operating system that will power the soon-to-be-shipped iPhone 6, coverage of Android L has slowed to a crawl. Android L debuted over the summer to an overwhelmingly positive response, but as Google has been very deliberate about actually bringing the new OS to Android phones, many Android users have simply moved on with their lives. Thankfully, they might not have to wait much longer. More →
Apple is calling iOS 8 the biggest update to its mobile operating system since the addition of the App Store. That’s a bold claim, but as the adoption rate slowly climbs in anticipation of the iPhone 6 launch, users are finding plenty of new features to back it up. Widgets, extensions and Continuity have received a majority of the attention from early adopters, but Fast Company has brought our attention to another hidden add-on that could help address important privacy concerns.
