Source: Nowhere else
According to Business Insider, they have found a source suggesting that the iPhone 6 will release and hold an event September 9th, 2014. Every year it seems that many sources leak “rumors” about designs and release dates of Apple’s many famous products. Are these rumors true? The source of this information is called Nowhere Else, which is a French website that generally has a good track record. But are these rumors anywhere else?
We have known that the iPhone would be released in September but not the exact date, so it’s no surprise.
Gizmodo notes: “Points against this being real? There are a few! The previous guide looked more complete, whereas this one appears to be some sort of draft, with no app icons to speak of. There are also several sensors that don't show up here that you would expect. That could mean it's fake, or that it's simply a streamlined version.
It is a disappointment because Nowhere’s photo disproves the other rumors of a larger display. Their photo instead suggests a 4.7” iPhone and not a 5.5” display as previously “rumored.” Many Apple fans won’t be happy with it not sizing up with the Samsung Galaxy. Do we need a larger iPhone? When Steve Jobs first released the iPhone, he dreamed of a device that would fit nicely your pocket. Apple doesn’t need to compare its devices to Samsung since they stand on their own in their unique way. This change in larger phone is an interesting trend, but will it last?
Other sources also say there may be two iPhone 6s released next month with the other iPhone having the larger 5.5" screen. This is shown with the front plate, home and volume buttons, and the dock connector for the iPhone 6. In addition there may be a lightning port for the iPhone 6L.

This Lenovo Y50 has a Core i7 2.4 GHz processor, 16GB of RAM, GTX 860M W/ 2GB of RAM, 256GB SSD Drive, and a 4K iPS Display. It targets gamers with its great hardware, an awesome keyboard, and sleek design. The sides of the laptop has a headphone and mic ports, a SD Card Reader, USB 2.0, Kensington Lock, a powerjack (in a different location other than from the back or corner), Ethernet port, HDMI, and USB 3.0. Unfortunately, the way that Lenovo has the hard drive partitions setup is poorly executed and there were also a lot of extra programs that was not needed that Lenovo added.
It is generally large laptop, but is quite lightweight for its size with a great feel for the keyboard. Lenovo’s keyboard is beautiful with its nice red backlight and a great touch for typing. When put to the test in gaming the keyboard stays cool while playing games on high, sounds great, with no overheating. On the other hand, the touchpad is just ok as the multi-touch doesn’t work as well, the touchpad is inconsistent, and you hit the touchpad as you type, which was annoying. On a positive note, the screen looks AMAZING! The 4K iPS display is stunning and perfect with sharp text display, but then again, there is some bleeding of display backlight with some discoloration (which of course can be calibrated). Lenovo says that the display is 60GHz but when you go into the setting the display it is only 48GHz refresh rate compared to the 60GHz.
Then there is the scaling problem. The Intel and nVIDIA drivers have a big problem working with the display scaling. When gaming it has problems with scaling and puts a tiny display in the middle of the screen with a HUGE black frame around it. In addition the GPU power throttling when on battery power causes HUGE fluctuations in the frame rate. The hardware is great, but the Intel and nVIDIA drivers don’t take advantage of the powerful gaming notebook. There needs to be a driver fix for the scaling problem because it seems that Lenovo and Nvidia have done something to prevent the end-user from updating to the latest Nvidia drivers. There is, however a temporary work around solution you could do by editing some ini or turning off driver signing. All in all it is a good gaming laptop for the casual gamer and other than its defects, this is the perfect laptop for around $1200.
