uncharted-4Now, no one expected this, but we’re all pleasantly surprised, aren’t we?

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is a reality, and comes to the PS4 in 2015 as what can only be described as a possible flagship title, bringing with it the same sort of allure and respect that Gran Turismo has on the Sony platform.

In iOS 8, things like QuickType — prediction typing, a la Android’s Google keyboard, quick access to notifications (and even direct input and interactions) on the lockscreen, new productivity gestures system-wide, group messaging and categorizing in the refined Message app, and a general reduction of animations, to go for more speed.

For example, with widgets that go into the notification center, which are built by developers and allow for more versatility.
