Apple’s new line of accessories, a collaboration between Topo Designs and Woolrich, Sony announces the newest addition to its RX series and more.

On the Radar

Reveals, New Launches and Gear

The Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Trackpad 2


In addition to their two new iMac displays, Apple has unveiled three redesigned ways to “click, scroll, swipe and type.” The Magic Keyboard ($99) has a low profile and improved key stability. The Magic Mouse 2 ($79) has a new multi-touch surface so users can easily swipe from page to page; and they can scroll in any direction with just one finger. For those who favor a trackpad, there’s the Magic Trackpad 2 ($129). Its touch-sensitive surface area is 30 percent larger than Apple’s previous version, and with its new force touch sensors, different actions can be performed depending on the amount of pressure applied by each finger. All these devices are obviously different. But what they all have in common, which is also Apple’s big selling point, is: they all have built-in rechargeable lithium ion batteries.

Sony RX1R II


Sony just announced the newest edition to their RX series: the RX1R II. The camera has a 42-megapixel sensor, a fixed 35mm F/2.0 lens and, like others in the RX line, it has a tiltable LCD screen. The camera will be available next month.

‘Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection’


Only available on PS4, this collection features single-player campaigns from the franchise’s previous games: Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. It also gives gamers exclusive access to the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End multiplayer beta.
