There's been a tonne of speculation about the HTC One M8's strange new camera. With one large lens on the back and a slightly smaller one just above it, no one quite knew what to think.

Sony's Phil Molyneux on How to Weird Your Way Back to Greatness

Sony is a consumer electronics beast with a lot of clout, but not necessarily a great product roster to back up its legendary status. Today, it's hardly the company that put a Walkman in every backpack and a colour TV in every living room. Read More >>

Hip-Hop From the Future: Inside Deltron's First New Record Since 2000

In May of 2000 three legends of hip-hop formed a supergroup and created something nobody saw coming: a futuristic, sci-fi rap album. When Deltron 3030 was first released, it didn't fit in with the gangster rap that was dominating the charts—and over the years it developed an almost fanatical cult following. The long awaited sequel—officially released today—is likely to do the same. Read More >>

How Jeff Bezos Made Amazon Everyone's Everything All of the Time

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is probably the defining salesman of our time. But in a sit-down with a small group of journalists yesterday that was ostensibly about new Kindle hardware, it became more clear than ever that his company's success has come not from any individual product line, but from one impossibly ambitious strategy: Be everywhere, do everything. It's insane. It's working. Read More >>

It Takes a Small Artistic Army to Bring a Pixar Film To Life

Monsters Inc blew more than a few minds when it premiered in 2001. Sully's coat comprised a million rendered hairs, and Boo's oversized pink shirt moved with such a natural flow it appeared nearly life-like to audiences. And while advances in technology during the twelve years between the original film and the prequel—premiering in June—will provide another jaw-dropping visual experience, Monsters University was no less challenging to make.

Mr Fix-It: Sir James Dyson On The Problems That Can't Be Solved

He’s renowned for pushing the boundaries of innovation and fixing things that never needed repair to innovate some of the coolest appliances on the planet.

Dyson's Newest Airblade Could Change the Way Architects Think

While James Dyson is the obvious face of the company he founded in 1993, he isn't the only one tinkering away at high-powered blades or really sucky vacuums in Malmesbury, England. With over 700 some engineers under one roof, Dyson tasked Marcus Hartley with creating the new Airblade Tap about two and a half years ago. Hartley, a veteran of the Airblade team, has been at Dyson for nine years and I actually met him when I visited Dyson back in 2008. Here's a quick chat I had with Marcus, the lead designer on Tap, from earlier tonight. Read More >>

Roman Coppola: "Everything is Now an App. It's Disappointing"

Earlier this year Intel, along with W Hotels, put out a call to all budding screenwriters over the social networks to send in scripts for a set of short films. Each film had to be set in a W Hotel, anywhere in the world, and have an Ultrabook as a central part of the story. At the creative helm they joined with Roman Coppola and The Directors Bureau to sift through the entries and assign directors, actors and producers. Read More >>

Here Are the People Behind Google Doodles

Google Doodles are the Cracker Jack prizes of the Internet, the digital back of the cereal box, a quirk that humanise the giant search company. And it's funny because the Doodles themselves exist in a sort of mysterious world—they pop up one day and then disappear. Very few people know about the process of creating Google Doodles. Well, here are the humans of the Google Doodle team talking about doodling. Read More >>
