Analyzing the iMac 5K Retina display: How do you squeeze 5K out of a last-gen GPU?
October 17, 2014
Apple announced a new 27-inch iMac yesterday, and it packs a significant wallop on the display front. As we've already detailed, these new 5K displays are thinner, cheaper, draw less power thanks to a more-efficient LED backlight, and, perhaps most importantly, Apple is selling the whole 27-inch iMac system at a mind-blowing price of $2500. That's the same price tag on Dell's 5K monitor. In other words, either Apple is going to sell this display at an incredible loss, or Dell was making an incredible profit. The latter is distinctly more likely than the former - and despite Apple's claim that it's developed an entirely new TCON (Timing Controller), this is distinctly unlikely.

Ricoh WG-4
October 14, 2014
The Ricoh WG-4 ($329.95) is a minor upgrade to the previous model, the Pentax WG-3. Its design is largely unchanged, and it uses the same lens and 16-megapixel image sensor, but it does add a shutter priority shooting mode. The rugged camerahas a bright f/2 lens, is rated to go as deep as 45 feet underwater, and includes a macro light system around its lens for close-up shots. But it's not quite the equal of our Editors' Choice, the Olympus Tough TG-3, which is a little more expensive, but adds integrated Wi-Fi and GPS capability, and much quicker performance. Design and Features The WG-4 retains the wide form factor and metal faceplate used by previous WG cameras. It measures 2.5 by 4.9 by 1.3 inches (HWD) and weighs 8.1 ounces. Its lens is centered in its body, which isn't typical for a rugged compact camera. Most other models, like the Olympus Tough TG-850 (2.5 by 4.3 by 1.1 inches, 7.7 ounces) place the lens in the top corner of the body.
