HP Introduces Sub-$100 Windows Tablet

Apple Edits iPhone 6's Protruding Camera Out of Official Photos

NoNonAlphaCharsHere Re:Parallax. (425 comments)

No, the phone is shown at exactly right angles, and they're right, the lens is photoshopped out. Meanwhile, it's 1 mm. What is that, the thickness of 2 business cards?
