Lenovo Sisley shows off Apple inspired design

Lenovo has been hard at work at a new smartphone called the Sisley, which some photos showing it off have been leaked online. The phone as a whole seems to be channeling Apple as it looks very reminiscent of the iPhone 6.


According to the source of the leaks, the Sisley is a mere 6.9 mm thick. Which also just happens to be the thickness of the iPhone 6. However one difference is that while Apple had placed plastics inlays all over the back of the phone in order to get the attennas to work. Lenovo has taken this design and added their own twist by moving them to the top. This in effect gives it a more pleasing aesthetic a straight line along a sloped edge made the phone look conflicted. The non-protruding rear camera is also a nice change.

The specifications of the Sisley are unconfirmed as of writing. The display has been rumored to be 5'' with 720p resolution. The front camera is alleged to be a 13 MP with in built LED flash while the rear camera is said to be 8 MP. Details about the processor, RAM and battery are unknown.

We are unsure if the Lenovo Sisley would be made available outside of its home market in China. What will be intriguing however is how Apple would react to the existence of the Sisley. Seeing as they have legally threatened alleged copycat efforts in the past

Apple iMac With Retina 5K Display: Hands On


So real you think you can touch it. That’s the only way to describe what it’s like to look at 4K imagery on Apple’s new $2,400 iMac With Retina 5K display.

Apple’s updated flagship computer features awesome power, from a 3.5GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 to a 4GHz Core i7. But it’s the 5,120 x 2,880 screen that's the star of the show.

From the outside, the 27-inch all-in one iMac looks a lot like its predecessors, but one look at the screen — with the right imagery, of course — and you know this is something different. No matter how close I got to the screen (within millimeters), I couldn’t detect individual pixels.

Twitter Now Lets You Listen to Audio in App While Browsing Your Timeline


Twitter users can now listen to songs, podcasts and other audio content in their timelines within the Twitter app, while continuing to scroll through other tweets.

Twitter rolled out a new version of its Audio Cards on Thursday with SoundCloud and Apple as launch partners, showcasing the new experience with music tweets from the Foo Fighters, David Guetta and Chance the Rapper.

The update for Twitter's iOS and Android apps allows users to expand the audio card for more details or dock the audio player with one swipe in order to keep browsing through their timelines, unlike in the past when users had to leave that audio tweet or open the audio file in a browser to continue skimming tweets.

Apple's iPad Mini 3: The First Look


Apple added yet another option to its lineup of small tablets on Thursday in the form of a third-generation iPad mini. The new iPad mini 3 boasts a a 7.9-inch display and comes in silver, space gray and gold.

But the update was the bare minimum. While the latest iPad mini with retina display is faster and includes Touch ID, it's still running the same A7 chip as the previous mini, and is the exact same thickness as the last model. Apple may be betting that some will choose the mini over the iPad Air, though, because it's so much lighter.
