The iPad is one of Apple's product lines which have gained an enormous popularity since its release in 2010. Since then, the Cupertino company had only needed to build upon that foundation to come up with other variants such as the iPad Air and the iPad Mini.
The challenge that Apple currently faces with its product lines is its continuous ambition to outdo the previous releases. Take for example the iPad with Retina Display or iPad 4th generation in November 2012 and the iPad Air in November 2013.
First off, the display. The iPad 4 comes with and IPS LCD 9.7-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 and 264 ppi. The iPad Air on the other hand has the same IPS LCD 9.7-inch touchscreen with the same resolution. Not having an upgraded resolution is a bit of a let down but it might change with the release of the iPad 2. more >>
Sony's PlayStation line had always initially come in black with the exception of the first PlayStation but also offered different colors like red and blue starting with the PlayStation 3. With the upcoming release of Bungie's sci-fi shooter "Destiny," Sony is planning to bundle it together with a white colored PlayStation 4.
When "Destiny" is released on Sept. 9, it will be coming bundled with a white PlayStation 4 and is currently only exclusive in the EU.
Players can still opt to purchase the white PlayStation 4 without the "Destiny" game bundled with it. The standalone white console will be released later this year, however, but it is still uncertain whether it will be coming in other countries. more >>

Enter Windows 9, an operating system from combining Windows RT and the Windows Phone OS.
