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.

Schlage WCO100NX Home Outdoor Camera
October 16, 2014
Today's connectedsurveillance camerasprovide a relatively affordable way to monitor outdoor activity around your home or business without having to invest in a full-blown multi-camera surveillance system. The Schlage WCO100NX Home Outdoor Camera ($189), designed exclusively for the Nexia Home Intelligence System, lets you view live video streams on your smartphone and PC Web browser and offers motion-triggered video capture. It will store recorded video in the cloud and send email alerts, but you'll have to purchase a Nexia Bridge and pay a monthly subscription fee for the service. Moreover, it doesn't offer the high-definition video quality that you get with our Editors' Choice, the D-Link Outdoor HD Wireless Network Cloud Camera (DCS-2330L), and installation could be smoother. Design and Features The WCO100NXhas a white-and-black weatherproof housing that will operate in temperatures ranging from 14 to 133 degrees Fahrenheit. The camera measures 4.1 by 3.7 by 1.5 inches (HWD) and has a maximum resolution of 640 by 480 at 30 frames per second. It has a 50-foot daylight viewing range that drops to around 15 feet at night when it relies on eight infrared LEDs to light the way.

D-Link HD Wireless N Day/Night Outdoor Cloud Camera (DCS-2330L)
October 16, 2014
The D-Link HD Wireless N Day/Night Outdoor Cloud Camera (DCS-2330L)($179.99) is a weatherproof networked security camera that delivers a sharp 720p video stream. It's also equipped with a generous feature set that includes Wi-Fi connectivity, motion detection, a built-in microphone, and email alerts. It offers an easy way to keep an eye (and an ear) on what's going on outside of your home or business using your Web browser or smartphone, and it will record video and audio to an onboard microSD card. Its ease of use and impressive video quality earn it our Editors' Choice for outdoor security cameras. Design and Installation The DCS-2330Lis similar in design to the D-Link Day/Night Network Cloud Camera 1150(DCS-933L), but at 5.5 by 3.6 by 2.6 inches (HWD) it is slightly larger. It comes with a sturdy whiteplastic stand that can be screwed into a soffit and has a pivot hinge that allows you to position the camera for optimal coverage.

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.
