The biggest headline- grabber of September was the unveiling of Apple’s latest flagship smartphone, the iPhone 6. Boasting a larger display than ever before, the device marked another major evolution for the iPhone brand. Also announced was the iPhone 6 Plus, an even larger device with a luxurious 5.5” screen. As expected, the launch of the devices was met with lineups at Apple retailers across Canada, and even though there was some controversy courtesy of “bend- gate” which reported some small numbers of bent iPhone 6 Plus’, everything went impressively smoothly for a new product launch. In movies, it was all about the Toronto International Film Festival this month, with Hollywood A- listers descending upon the city to showcase their latest works. Among the notable debuts at 2014’ s TIFF were Robert Downey Jr.’ s The Judge, The Imitation Game, St. Vincent, Tusk, Nightcrawler, The Equalizer and homegrown efforts like Preggoland, Backcountry and Teen Lust. Microsoft announced it had agreed to acquire Minecraft developer Mojang for a whopping $ 2.5 billion on the 15th of the month, which raised some eyebrows - especially as the game had made its PS4 debut just 11 days earlier - but it looks like good business for the Xbox manufacturer. Notable game releases for September included The Sims 4 on PC, Bungie’s longawaited post- Halo debut Destiny, NHL 15 from EA Sports, Disney Infinity 2.0: Marvel Super Heroes, FIFA 15, Forza Horizon 2 and Middle- earth: Shadow of Mordor - signalling the return of the industry’s silly season once again!
