I thought the characterization of video shot on the 6 Plus as “cinematic” was going to be a marketing overstatement—simply gross hyperbole! No. It’s not! The video is buttery smooth, beautiful, stable, gorgeously fluid. Shocking! Simply shocking!
They had a new iPhone 6 Plus with 128GB in stock–literally, the only phone they had in the store (save for the one Steve had just returned)! Because it was a Verizon phone, he could take the Verizon card out and place my T-Mobile card in it, and tah dah! I had a phone!

Omid Asadi, an artist from Iran (so, naturally, he has to be a terrorist or something) carefully cuts fallen, dried leaves into weapons of mass des…—oh, I mean: amazing miniaturized works of art!
OK, so I’m easily amused! I am often fascinated by the hint in a baby’s face of what the adult will look like. Here’s a great example: In 1927, Dorothy Gerber was straining vegetables through a seive to make them edible for her baby daughter Sally. Her husband, Daniel Gerber, owned a canning factory. He […]
