Apple on Thursday announces updates to its popular iPad line as well as to its desktop computers and operating system. It also reveals that Apple Pay will launch next Monday for consumers. The event comes one month after the company debuted its new line of iPhones and Apple Watch. CNET.com's Kara Tsuboi reports.
With its slim design, fantastic screen, and oodles of power, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is a superb smaller tablet, and a worthy competitor to the ever-popular iPad Mini.
Despite rapid gains in recent years, consumer appetite for tablets seems to be shrinking, thanks to demand for bigger smartphones.
The retail giant, looking to expand beyond its Kindle tablets, may release an Amazon-branded smartphone in September.

Apple is not getting enough displays for its iPad Mini Retina from Sharp, according to an Asia-based report.
Apple says the iPad Mini with Retina Display is "coming later in November." But ample supply may not come till next year.
The Cupertino, Calif., electronics giant says the bezel of its 9.7-inch device is 43 percent smaller, and it's also lighter.
Android is criticized for its lack of apps versus iOS. But that gap is closing. Fast.
Does the Android tablet landscape change now that Apple offers a smaller version of its popular iPad? Considering its higher price and scaled-down iPad features, it won't mean a whole lot.
