One of the best reviews of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus takes place at Disneyland. Matthew Panzarino takes the phone with him on the visit and spends a few days putting the phones through what could easily fill in for a normal day, browsing the internet, playing a game for a bit, taking pictures, etc.

One of the more impressive bits:

The phase detection autofocus is extremely quick, and the continuous autofocus while video recording is active is absolutely fantastic. The leap in quality over even dedicated cameras can’t be overstated. The image quality is off the charts and the (software driven) “Cinematic Stabilization” is amazing.

Having a piece of equipment that fits in your pocket and takes amazing pictures and videos is one of the iPhone’s killer selling points. The fact that Apple continues to make improvements in the camera, the processing power of it and the quality, is what makes me keep coming back to it.

Southwest unveiled their new livery this morning and while I am not a huge fan of the font or the colors, it seems they really thought about unifying their look. The bubble font is what bothers me the most. I thought bubble fonts were dead and we all said “good riddance”. I guess not.

A new commercial accompanied the livery unveiling and it’s a different marketing approach from previous Southwest spots and I like what they did. They talk about their customers, their commitment and how much their employees matter.
