For only the second time in its history, the new iPhone isn't just better than its predecessor — it's bigger, too. Available in both 4.7- and 5.5-inch variants, and in three colorways, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus sport a speedier A8 processor, a new M8 motion co-processor, Retina HD screens (1334 x 750 for the 4.7, and 1920 x 1080 for the 5.5), slimmer bodies that are curved on the edges so they're more comfortable to hold, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, an improved 8 megapixel camera with faster autofocus and 240 fps slo-mo, optical image stabilization in the Plus, 128GB storage options, support for faster LTE, and a special landscape interface for the Plus model. But perhaps the most interesting new feature is support for NFC, making these the first iPhones to support Apple's new ApplePay mobile payment service, which lets you check out at select retailers using nothing but your phone and your finger. We hear it plays pretty well with a certain new watch, too.
Gone are the days of long, clunky telescopes that you had to manually point at every little thing in the sky you wanted to see close up — consumer telescopes have evolved, and there's no better evidence than the NexStar Evolution 8 Telescope. With an optical tube that's eight inches wide, it does the job of older, much larger telescopes, while its compatibility with iOS and Android apps takes all the guesswork out of finding stars, constellations, and planets. An onboard motor responds to everything you tell it to do through your phone or tablet, so all you have to do is stare up at the night sky.
Forget trying to manage your DVR — with the TiVo Mega, you can record everything you want to watch and keep it around way past time for the next season to start. How does it pull this off? With a massive 24TB RAID 5 hard drive system, enough space to hold roughly 4,000 hours of HD recordings. Other features include six tuners for recording multiple shows at once, built-in streaming to your phone or tablet, both at home and over the Internet, universal search across cable, VOD, and web apps like Netflix and YouTube, multi-room, whole-home support, and a slide-out keyboard remote to make those searches a breeze.
