  • Dell kicks your puny 4K monitor to the curb, debuts 27-inch 5K panel: Now, this is what I'm talking about! The current iMac has a 2560x1440 resolution, and this display doubles both dimensions, and would make for a first-class Retina iMac. MacRumors tries to pour some cold water on this, saying an iMac with this display would be too expensive. I don't disagree with that, and sure, Apple could go with a 4K display and call it "retina". But I really hope that Apple makes a high-end, possibly expensive, Retina iMac with a 5K display.

  • Buy Destiny on PS3 or Xbox 360 digitally, upgrade to new-gen version for free: When I buy an app on my iPhone, I can use it on all of my iOS devices. Bungie/Activision is getting closer here, but I'm still not willing to buy "Destiny" for my PS3, knowing that I probably won't get a PS4 for another year. I think that a more liberal policy would encourage more software sales.

  • Vine Celebrities: A was at the gym a block away from this venue, and not only did the line of people waiting to get in wrap around the block, we could hear their enthusiastic screams down in the bowels of the gym. I've never heard of "Jack and Jack" before, but I can testify that their fans are extremely enthusiastic.
