Still my favorite piece of technology right now.

Those new buttons are a little startling, but they have promise. Google is finally cleaning up around the board.

The all new PS Vita Slim

With an LED display some may see this upgrade as a downgrade, but personally I found that the OLED display of the first generation model left bizarre looking streaks in the display. The new colors are fabulous though, companies really underestimate how much a fresh palette of colors can make a consumer want to buy something. Story developing until we get more solid news on when the PS Vita Slim is actually arriving.

Google Glass Games?

Google Glass has always seemed like an information receiving device. Maybe its only mission will be to show smart notifications on the fly, or maybe it could be an actual gaming platform. Here, Google developers show what is possible with internal Google Glass technology. Personally, I think this could be a really interesting foray into casual gaming but to only have one screen to work with would pose seemingly difficult guidelines to meet.

Jony Ive is auctioning a bright red Mac Pro for charity
Apple’s new Mac Pro may not be released just yet, but Jony Ive and fellow designer Marc Newson have already created an alternate model of the upcoming machine as the latest entry in their high-end charity auction for Red at Sotheby’s. The one-of-a-kind Mac Pro appears to be structurally identical to its standard black, aluminum shape, but as with many products sold for the Red charity, it’s been coated in a bright, candy-apple color that makes it look all the more appealing.

Jony Ive and Marc Newson create the MacBook Air of desks

Apple’s Jony Ive and the renowned industrial designer Marc Newson have paired to design a one-off desk. Created for charity auction, the (RED) Desk is, in keeping with much of the designers’ back catalogues, machined from solid aluminum. Unlike the Leica camera revealed earlier this week, the (RED) Desk is not based on previous work, which should help its value skyrocket. 

Jony Ive’s designed a custom Leica camera and my is it gorgeous. Minimalistic but still has those technical details. The best of both words.
