If you've been wanting to know what the so-called iPhone 5S looks like but don't have the patience to wait for someone to lose it in a bar, we've (maybe) got some good news for you. This morning a leaked image of the new iPhone's supposed logic board started circulating throughout the Internet after it appeared on Japanese blog Macotakara, and now MacRumors claims to have photos of the display itself. The kinda-sorta bad news? There's not much visible difference, although that was expected.
People say to us all the time, "Why are you always playing on your phone?" Ha! Joke's on them, because our phone isn't just a pocket arcade. We're blogging, making music, scheduling doctor's appointments, taking notes on our screenplay, digging deep in cloud storage or on our home computers for work files, and tons of other things. If you're productivity-obsessed like we are, then you'll love this week's batch of price cuts that turn your iPhone or iPad into a tool for getting things done.
It's one week to the big love day holiday and if you are stumped for a gift idea, we have a few.

When Steve Jobs took the wraps off the iPhone back in 2007, he described it as, among other things, a "widescreen iPod with touch controls." But when we finally got our hands on one, we realized that wasn't exactly true. Sure, it was wider than any of the iPods at the time, but it wasn't quite widescreen--rather, the iPhone utilized a 3.5-inch display with a 3:2 aspect ratio, closer to a standard-definition television set than an HD one.
Think you know a lot about displays? Few of us know as much as DisplayMate expert Dr. Raymond Soneira, who has just published a fascinating report to help consumers and pros alike better understand misleading display specs.
While iFixit tore apart the new MacBook Pro with Retina Display last week and quickly branded it as the least user-serviceable notebook they've ever seen, they still had one big component to get to: The Retina Display itself.
Well, that was fast -- mere hours after we reported Tuesday night that iFixit was busy dismantling a mid-2012 MacBook Air, and the doctors already have a new patient on the table: The new MacBook Pro with Retina Display.
