Remember when Vizio promised to make an Ultra HD TV something regular people could actually afford when they unveiled a model in January that cost less than $1,000? That’s finally happening with the launch of the company’s P-Series of sets.

Vizio calls its UHD sets “P”…

Ray Ozzie wants to get people talking again. But not with traditional phone calls, which he believes are fundamentally broken

Instead, Microsoft‘s former chief architect has imagined a new way to communicate — one that is centered around voice but also uses photos, video and text. It’s called Talko.

“I passionately believe that there’s immense latent potential in voice — to convey tone and emotion, to quickly resolve issues, to make decisions and to…

It’s amazing to consider just how much the iPhone has changed from its original release in 2007 to its current iterations, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. In fact, the best way to view that evolution is through a speed test, pitting every generation of iPhone against each other

No matter what you call it, photography stands at or near the center of the iPhone 6’s key attributes. Considering where smartphone photography began, it’s a surprising turn of events.

Happy iPhone 6 day! We already reviewed the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus earlier this week. Still, we can’t have iPhone Day without an unboxing video.

My iPhone 6, courtesy of Verizon, arrived at Mashable HQ earlier this afternoon. If you’re not sick of unboxing videos (and come on, how could you be), you can see me unbox mine and even give it the “small girl pocket” test.

All in all, the iPhone 6 is pretty fantastic. It’s big,…
