Disappointing tech: When did the future get so ugly?
buttons might not sound like the stuff dreams are made of. But at least the Nintendo powerglove had a bit of oomph about its hardware, a bit of heft. The Apple Watch, on the other hand, is like a suburban hotel alarm clock strapped to a cheap metal ...

Samsung found itself in sort of a bind last year: Its flagship Galaxy S5 wasn't the blockbuster the company hoped it would be . That, coupled with the news that Samsung was going to focus on a smaller number of devices in 2015, signaled a pretty... As if to silence the doubters, Samsung has not one, but two flagships on offer -- the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge -- and they're surrounded by questions. Before we go any further, know this: Aside from the obvious differences -- the Edge has a wrap-around screen and a few software tricks that take advantage of it -- the Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge are basically identical. Same screen size, same 16-megapixel cameras, same octa-core Exynos 7420 brains, and so on. They're two devices crafted with the same metal, glass and silicon, which makes the dramatic design differences between them all the more meaningful. Your eyes will immediately get sucked into the 5. 1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED screen, but a 5-megapixel selfie camera sits above it while the Home button lies below, flanked by discrete Back and Recent Apps keys. High on the S6's back is a squarish plateau that houses the 16-megapixel camera, and to the right lies a tiny black divot where the LED flash and heart rate sensor live. Really, it's details like these that speak most loudly to Samsung's new design philosophy.
Price: $324,900. For those still stuck on Portland as a land of rustic crafts and handlebar mustaches , this 1959 home by architects William Fletcher and Donald Blair may be a revelation. Built near the Hazelwood neighborhood of East Portland as a model for a developer, it's a true Midcentury time capsule, down to the light fixtures, folded-plate roof and colorful prefabricated panels that recall a certain case home. You don't need that George Nelson clock in the living room—across from the Batman poster—to tell you what time period they're preserving. Fletcher and Blair were part of the 14th Street Gang of architects, so named because of the location of their offices, who helped popularize a Northwest Regional Style of architecture. This project, sometimes called the "Home of Tomorrow," is part of a larger group of midcentury homes found in the east side of the city.
