Google Glass is dead, at least in its current form. And so it enters a grand, tragic graveyard of well-meaning but badly-received inventions and technology — a place containing flying cars and bad games consoles.

Has Google lost sight of the basics? Like the broken automatic door at the main cafe at the corporation's main HQ?

Thanks for sharing, this is so true. If the site doesn't work nobody cares how pretty it looks.

In what has become a fall ritual, Apple on Thursday announced a pair of new iPads: the iPad Air 2 and the iPad Mini 3. In what is also starting to become a fall ritual, the company’s new tablets look a lot like the old ones. The headline is that...

Working at Google after your company was bought for $1 billion seems like a pretty sweet gig, but not to Waze co-founder Uri Levine. So at this year's..

Questions about bending iPhones gets German magazines on the Apple blacklist

I wrote about Apple's blacklist last year: http://goo.gl/H15zEU

The column was weirdly controversial; people actually argued that Apple doesn't have a blacklist. 

Anyway, the German publication COMPUTER BILD tested the bend-ability of iPhone 6s, published a video of their test and then Apple did something uncharacteristic: They actually informed the publication that they were now on the blacklist.

Android phones have had NFC since end of 2010, and Google Wallet was launched in the US in May 2011. But how many are actually using it there?

The folks over at iFixit have gotten their hands on one of Apple's new 27" Retina iMacs, and, as they are wont to do, immediately opened it up to find out what makes these things tick. Inside they ...

Curiously, the iPad Mini 3 is identical to last year's iPad Mini 2 -- the same screen, the same camera, the same A7 SoC, the same dimensions -- except it now has a Touch ID fingerprint sensor. Even weirder: Last year's iPad Mini 2 is still for sale, but starting $100 cheaper at just $300. Yes, in a complete 12-month product cycle, the only change Apple has made to the iPad Mini 3 is the addition of the Touch ID sensor -- and it'll cost you an ext...

#BendGate as a case study in embedded reporting in tech. Mainstream tech media conspired with Apple to mislead us: 
Last week, #BendGate took the Internet by storm. I'm sure you're all familiar with it by now, but if not, BendGate was created from an alleged bending issue with Apple's iPhone 6 Plus. There's a sp...
