The iPhone 5   —  The iPhone 5 is really nice.  It feels great, looks great, has the best display I've seen at any size, runs noticeably faster, networks noticeably faster, is way thinner and lighter than any of its predecessors, takes better photos, and, in my six days of testing, gets totally decent iPhone-4S-level battery life.

Pixel Perfect   —  I've spent my whole life thinking about dots, largely in the form of on-screen pixels.  I remember first seeing a Pac-Man coin-op arcade game, wondering how it worked, and deducing the basic gist: the screen was a matrix of dots, like animated graph paper.  I loved graph paper.
