How does the iPhone hold up against a serious camera?
Everyone knows that the iPhone 5S has a great camera. I say it myself all the time, even as someone who’s spent too many thousands on cameras and lenses over the years. What does that really mean, though? It’s true that the iPhone 5S does take better pictures than just about any other smartphone. But how close am I to throwing away my dedicated photography setup? I decided to put the 5S against a “real” camera — taking near-identical snapshots across a day and night in Harajuku, Tokyo — to see how things shake out in practice.

"What Your Junk Drawer Reveals About You" via Linton Weeks

"The Great American Junk Drawer can be an accidental time capsule, a haphazard scrap heap, a curious box of memories and meaninglessness. It can also serve as a Rorschachian reflection of your life.”

Richard Stevens of Diesel Sweeties posted this amusing and all-too-true comic featuring the kinds of posts that are unlikely to be made on social media. The one featuring Thor is particularly timely.

Today’s the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act that was meant to usher in equality, and we wanted to know how it evolved, and what it means to us today. So we made an app for that.

Fascinating map. Also sort of crazy: California isn’t (yet) Apple country.
Chevron had $220 billion in revenue last year to Apple’s $170 billion. But Apple had far more net income — roughly $14 billion more, nearly double Chevron. That’s how profitable Apple’s business is.
