Wynd’s air purifier has broad ambitions and a short reach

 The Wynd smart air purifier is designed to create “bubbles” of fresh air — small, one-person respites from pollution, allergens and other detrimental particles floating in the ether. It feels almost dystopian, a world in which we’re required to arm ourselves against the air around us, but the product clearly struck a nerve. Read More

New spy shots of Tesla’s upcoming Model 3 surface online

Model 3 Photos

After years of anticipation, and if all goes according to plan, Tesla in just a few short months will follow through on a promise Elon Musk laid out more than 10 years ago. Back in August of 2006, Musk published the first iteration of Tesla's "secret" master plan and articulated that the company would use the profits from what would eventually be called the Model S to fund the development and manufacturing of what would ultimately be known as the Model 3.

As it stands today, Tesla will begin mass production on the Model 3 in July, with deliveries slated to arrive to early reservation holders before the end of 2018. And while skeptics will point out that Tesla has a knack for missing delivery deadlines, the company's production processes have only become more efficient with time. What's more, Tesla has said that meeting its Model 3 production schedule shouldn't be a problem because the car is decidedly less complex to manufacture than the Model S and the Model X.

Hubble just delivered one of the most gorgeous space photos ever

space news

The past few weeks have been jam-packed with stunning imagery from Saturn, delivered courtesy of the Cassini spacecraft. Now, almost as if to say "Hey, remember me?", NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has grabbed our attention with what is almost certainly one of the most spectacular photos it's ever managed to capture. The photo, which was released this week, has a whole lot going on, including some tricky perspective work that, as NASA points out, really messes up the scale of everything you're seeing.

Blue Sadie headphones review: premium audio at a premium price

Blue Sadie headphones review

Blue, a company known for their microphones and recording equipment, has rolled out a new line of premium headphones. The prices go from $250 to $700, but the sweetest spot for most people would probably be the $400 Sadie over-ear headphones. For the price, you get an integrated amplifier that's supposed to give you high-quality, distortion-free audio like you'd get from a fancy headphone pre-amp, but in a setup that you can take with you.

EduTech: With Swift Playgrounds, Apple has a chance to change programming forever

EduTech is a 9to5Mac weekly series that focuses on technology’s application in education, lower and higher level, both for productivity and enjoyment. If you have suggestions for topics or specific questions you’d like to see answered, feel free to let me know. Catch up on past installments here

This week’s EduTech is a guest post from Apple Distinguished Educator Michael Cohen, founder of The Tech Rabbi. Apple’s Distinguished Educator program recognizes professionals who are using Apple to “transform teaching and learning.” 


When Apple announced the Swift programming language at WWDC in 2014, they aimed to change the way developers program forever. Promoted as a more resilient and flexible language, it was adopted, refined, and for the most part embraced. Less than 3 years later, Apple is set to revolutionize the way we program again. This time it’s not through veteran programmers, it’s through 9-16 year old students.

Through programming, coding, and as President Obama put it #CS4ALL, Apple has a chance to redefine and crown itself again as a unstoppable technological force in education.

You can actually get a 4K TV for half the price of an iPhone

Cheap 4K TV

Ready for a serious dose of reality? Flagship smartphones have gotten so expensive that a brand new 43-inch TV featuring cutting-edge 4K resolution costs about half as much as an entry-level iPhone 7 Plus. It seems crazy, but it's true. 4K TVs are still new enough that most people don't have them, and yet you can get a well-rated and well-reviewed Ultra HD TV with a built-in Roku experience a display that measures 43 inches diagonally for under $400 on Amazon... and that includes shipping!
