Move over 4k, the Retina iMac hits 5k

I might not be an Apple evangalist, but I am a resolution junkie so I must give Apple props for announcing "the world's highest resolution display" on the new Apple iMac with Retina display. The new "5K" Retina display is sporting 5120x2880 on a 27" screen. For those of you keeping track at home, that is 67% more pixels than a 4k display. The new iMac is sporting a Radeon R9 M290x to drive all those pixels and the rest of the spes are pretty standard. All of this can be yours for a price starting st $2,499 and can be purchased today. The Verge has more details over here.

Apple has announced a new version of its iMac desktop computer complete with a high-resolution Retina display. The new model has what Apple says is the "world's highest resolution display", at 5120 x 2880 pixels on a 27-inch screen. Prior to this, the highest resolution iMac was the 27-inch version, which has a 2560 x 1440 pixel display. Apple notes that it has seven times as many pixels as an HD TV, with 14.7 million in total. It's also 67 percent more pixels than 4K displays, and Apple is calling it a Retina 5K display.

League of Legends World Championship

League of Legends and eSPORTS are really starting to take off and with the World Championships in Korea selling out to a 40,000 person crowd, things are picking up the pace. At this event $11 Million was up for grabs making it worth while to start gaming again. If this is an indication of the future, I really need to spend more time in the virtual world.

Last night, Riot’s final World Championship match series was held in Korea, where 40,000 fans sold out Seoul’s World Cup Stadium to watch Korean pros Samsung White and China’s Starhorn Royal Club compete for the honor of being the best team of the most popular game of the world, which boasts 67 million monthly players at last count.

Microsoft Kills Nokia Officially

Nokia has been struggling for many years and while the purchase by Microsoft was supposed to breathe new life into the dying brand, it didn't. Microsoft has some compelling products, but they are often too late and too limited when they hit the shelves. Now that Microsoft has a new CEO with a new "prime directive", the Nokia brand is getting the axe - but they will keep the Lumia name. Introducing, Microsoft Lumia. I'm sure that will make their products better.

Microsoft's decision to drop the Nokia brand itself doesn't mean that Nokia is going away fully. Nokia still exists as a separate company without its phones business, and the Finnish firm now focuses on mapping and network infrastructure. Microsoft's choice to use Lumia as the Nokia replacement won't come as a surprise to many. Nokia's Windows Phone apps have been rebranded to Lumia recently, and holiday ads will be pushing Lumia instead of Nokia.
