Probably my favorite TED talk of all time. If you haven't seen this, please take a couple minutes to do so. I promise you it will definitely be worth it!
Stress. It makes your heart pound, your breathing quicken and your forehead sweat. But while stress has been made into a public health enemy, new research suggests that stress may only be bad for you if you believe that to be the case. Psychologist Kelly McGonigal urges us to see stress as a positive, and introduces us to an unsung mechanism for stress reduction: reaching out to others.

Tested this out and I'm happy to say that I'm pleasantly surprised with how well it worked. Even when I couldn't read my own handwriting, Google could! I will be using this as my default keyboard for my tablet, but it didn't make a lot of sense on my phone.
 
Today we launched Google Handwriting Input (http://goo.gl/qWWhDU), which lets users handwrite text on their Android mobile device as an additional input method for any Android app, supporting 82 languages in 20 distinct scripts. It works with both printed and cursive writing input with or without a stylus. Beyond text input, it also provides a fun way to enter hundreds of emojis by drawing them (simply press and hold the ‘enter’ button to switch modes). It also works with or without an Internet connection. Learn more at http://goo.gl/j7lFbC

I feel like to get a patent it has to be an original idea... but that's why I'm not a lawyer.
 
Seriously? Google introduced this in Android 3 years ago and I remember seeing the feature in Toshiba laptops several years before that.
Unlocking your iPhone could soon be as easy as taking a selfie, according to a freshly-granted Apple patent.

Maybe I will live until 1,000
 
This find could enable us to slow (or even halt) muscular atrophy, prevent various forms of cancer, and slow the aging process...
Slowing, or even halting of the ageing process has, up to now, sat firmly in the realms of science fiction. Now, we may be able to change that.

Welp.
 
Windows 10 to be FREE upgrade for Windows 7, 8, 8.1

Many users weren't all too happy with Windows 8 or 8.1's UI changes and opted to stay with Windows 7 instead. It would be in Microsoft's best interest to offer Windows 10 as a free upgrade to those users, to get as many users onto the new platform as possible. Great job Microsoft.

(For the first year.)

Everyone in the US can now buy domain names directly through Google.
Established registrars offer more services for power domainers, but Google is targeting the small business owner with basic services.

My family is always looking for great Japanese restaurants and this is definitely one of the best we've been to. The sushi is delicious and very large! Overall, the experience was very enjoyable; a great show followed by copious amounts of food.
