Apple Introduces iPad mini 3

Apple‘s newly unveiled iPad mini 3 boasts a stunning 7.9‑inch Retina display, an incredibly powerful A7 chip, advanced wireless technologies, and Touch ID. To ensure the Retina display in iPad mini 3 was sharp and vivid, Apple had to pack every one of the 3.1 million pixels from the 9.7-inch iPad into a 7.9-inch display. With a 2048-by-1536-resolution display, more pixels and more signals are placed closer together on the same plane, so signals can get crossed and image quality can suffer. To ensure everything on iPad mini 3 looks crystal clear, Apple engineers elevated the pixels onto a different plane — separating them from the signals. In the end, the pixel density jumped to 326 pixels per inch — so dense the human eye can’t distinguish individual pixels — making everything look incredibly detailed, vibrant, and razor sharp. The new iPad mini 3 comes in silver, space gray, and for the first time, gold. iPad mini 3 starts at $399 USD and will be available online beginning October 17.

CBS Launches Digital Subscription Service

For $5.99 a month, the company is offering a subscriber video-on-demand and live streaming service, aptly titled CBS All Access. In addition to serving up current-season episodes the day after they air, it will offer previous seasons of several CBS-owned shows as well as a vast library of classic CBS series and the ability to stream local CBS television stations live in 14 of the largest U.S. markets. The service will be offered through all major digital platforms, including an app and website, with plans to add to connected TVs at a later date.

All Access marks a considerable move for a network that has long been selective with regard to its digital dealings, famously staying out of the Hulu pact its broadcast rivals made many years earlier. By remaining largely untethered in that way, CBS is able to introduce its new paid service, which is designed to target those being dubbed “CBS superfans,” who are seeking greater access to past and present CBS shows. Or, as CBS CEO Leslie Moonves noted: “CBS All Access is another key step in the company’s long-standing strategy of monetizing our local and national content in the ways that viewers want it.”
