It’s been a year of change for Apple. Within months of the tech giant departing from its legacy as a hardware company to focus on services, its chief designer of 30 years Jony Ive made a departure of his own, leaving Apple and launching his own design firm.

Last year we made and froze tomato sauce and pesto, and this year we are going to try making sauerkraut. Leanne Hays, Associate Editor Sole Mates Socks ($20) I’ve admired Sole Mates socks for years but never bought them because of the price. Last Christmas, I treated myself to a pair and have worn them at least twice a week all year. They’ve held up fantastically, and the bright colors and mismatched pattern make me smile. Tamlin Day, Web Writer Eight Cup Classic Chemex ($45.50) I wouldn’t be able to live without my Chemex 8-cup coffee pot. I refer…

apple’s fall announcement roundup

In the last two years, Apple has focused its iPhone hardware upgrades primarily on the camera. Better lenses, better zoom, and higher clarity have been the highlight of Apple’s recent announcements.

Additional camera lenses and increased storage capacity will only take a company so far without innovating new features. This is probably why Apple has been focused on paid services. In August, Apple released the Apple Card for…
