I played around with the new Android camera app's Lens Blur feature, which mimics a "real" camera via depth mapping.

How it stacked up vs. an iPhone 5S and a Sony RX100 II:

Google's new camera app takes mobile photography to lovely new heights. So of course we threw it in a cage for a fight to the death.

I wrote about who I think should buy google glass today (hint: the answer isn't "no one"!)

Today’s the day to become a Glass Explorer

We let the cat out of the bag, you marked your calendars, and the time has finally arrived. If you're a US resident who is 18+, you can purchase Glass and join the Explorer Program at glass.google.com/getglass

The Explorer bundle costs $1500+tax and includes your favorite shade or frame, a charger, pouch, hard case and mono earbud. As an Explorer, your feedback will help to shape how Glass evolves over time. 

We’ve got a limited number of spots available, so don’t wait too long – we can't wait to meet you and hear about your first adventures with Glass.

The Heartbleed vulnerability is really, really bad. Get up to speed on the bug and check the sites you use and own. Yikes.

Virtual Reality is a platform so vast we literally cannot see its edges. Oculus lays the foundation for a future that we can't even imagine until we try it on.

Mark Zuckerberg tried it on. Then he bought it.

I will not be purchasing the next Rift unless the final product is a stand alone unit with absolutely no proprietary ties to FB.
