This May Be The Best Look Yet At The New iPhone

It’s happening. Apple’s invitation to a September 9 event has officially gone out. At least one next-gen iPhone will be unveiled in a few short days. However, new photos have emerged on Chinese site WeiFeng that appear to show components that match up almost identically to previous leaks for a 4.7-inch iPhone. If these numerous leaks are to be trusted as the real deal, and we are, in fact, looking at parts for the next iPhone, then you’ll notice that this design language is quite a departure from the past few generations of the iPhone. From the iPhone 4 onward (with the slight exception of the iPhone 5c), the iPhone has had a flat face and back, with rounded corners. These components point to a more iPad mini-like shape, with four strips of plastic seemingly running across the back of the device. As AppleInsider mentions, the strips in these most recent photos seem to be closer to the color of the metal back of the phone, as opposed to previous leaks. This might suggest that we’re seeing a more finalized version. However, we’ve also heard rumors that claim that the plastic strips are just a preliminary design, and will eventually be replaced by glass, which would look a bit closer to the current iPhone 5s. The next iPhone is a big deal for Apple. The company is making big...

Beyoncé Covers CR Fashion Book Issue 5

For Issue 5 of Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book, the young, yet revered imprint tapped Beyoncé for its latest cover story. Shot by Pierre Debusschere with guest creative direction coming from Riccardo Tisci, the double-sided cover image sees Queen B wearing an all-over floral cape from Yohji Yamamoto with a Yeezus-esque mask on one side. The rest of the spread includes styles from COMME des GARCONS, PRADA, Nike and a Chanel surfboard(t).

Google Launches Guest Mode For Chrome Beta

Google is launching a new feature in the Chrome beta channel for Windows, Mac and Linux today that will make it easier — and safer — to let others use your computer. Typically, when you give your laptop to somebody else, it’s pretty trivial for the other person to access your personal data, too. Now, the Chrome beta features a guest mode so you can keep your own data safe. As a new user, you can either sign in as a guest and get a fresh browser without any personalization, or sign in with a Google account, which means all your settings, themes and bookmarks are synced, too. If that sounds a bit like Chrome OS, that’s probably because Google’s laptops feature the same kind of functionality. The Chrome beta now highlights the current user in a small drop-down menu in the top right corner. From there, you can switch between users and start a new porn incognito session. One thing I noticed, though, was that even after I switched to the guest mode, I could still open up a new Chrome session and Chrome (at least on Windows) wouldn’t ask me for my password to sign in (likely because you aren’t actually signed out of your Google accounts). Your original browser window also stays open, so at least at this stage, it’s not the world’s most secure system....
