The Honor 7 family is growing another letter as China Telecom briefly let an Honor 7A peek out from under the covers. The phone should be made official this Friday at a price of CNY 1,500 ($ 240/190). It has all the trappings of a modern smartphone, including an 18:9 screen and a dual camera. The screen is reasonably big at 5.7″, but not too sharp – 720 x 1,440. The processing power is modest too, with a Snapdragon 430 chipset (not even a 450). The memory situation is pretty good at 3GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage. Huawei Honor 7A (leaked image) The dual camera has a 13MP…

Looking to market the iMac Pro as "the most powerful Mac ever," Apple has published six short films made using the desktop as the primary tool.
AppleInsider – Frontpage News
To demonstrate how the iMac Pro is the most powerful Mac ever, Apple recently invited a group of filmmakers, CG artists, and graphics designers to create a series of short films using its advanced technologies.
The artists include creative director Erin Sarofsky, motion graphics designer Esteban Diácono, 3D artist Luigi Honorat, director and designer Michelle Dougherty, design and motion studio ManvsMachine, and an integrated collective of designers, artists, and storytellers from production company Buck.
From concept development through final preparations for render, Apple says the iMac Pro was at the center of the creative work. The fine print does note that additional equipment was used for final rendering of 3D content.
Each film is accompanied by a behind-the-scenes video showing how the iMac Pro fit into the creative process, alongside a list of software tools used and testimonials about how great the iMac Pro is. Apple hasn’t shared the films on its YouTube channel yet, so it’s unclear if they’ll double as TV ads.
iMac Pro was described as “blazingly fast” in an early review. Based on benchmarks, the mid-range model with a 10-core 3.0GHz Intel Xeon processor is up to 45 percent faster than the high-end 2013 Mac Pro. The 10-core iMac Pro is also up to 93 percent faster than the latest top-of-the-line 27-inch 5K iMac.

Akupara Games’ recent release Keep in Mind: Remastered is at its core a walking simulator that confronts heavy concepts like alcoholism and depression. Needless to say, this isn’t your average mobile game. It most definitely won’t appeal to a mass audience, though for those of you who are interested, it does explore some of the darker sides of average suburban life.
If you have never heard of Keep in Mind before, let me fill you in.
