For one day only, Google is giving the general public a chance to buy Google Glass, but the price may be too steep for the average consumer.
For $1,500, "Explorer" versions of Google Glass were made available online to U.S. consumers as of 9 a.m. Eastern Time on Tuesday.
What might be considered the most exciting breakthrough in the world of materials is just around the corner.
Graphene, a material that was studied theoretically in the 1940s, is in the spotlight now as researchers at the Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology and Sungkyunkwan University in South Korea said they are working on developing the wonder material.
Graphene is only a single atom thick, yet so pliable that a cell phone can fold and fit in a pocket like a piece of paper. A single ounce of the material could cover 28 football fields. It is a form of carbon that conducts heat and electricity and can also be submerged in liquid without oxidizing.
And get this: while it's light and pliable, it's also the hardest material in the world—some 200 times stronger than steel.
It's finally here, Samsung's splashy new smartphone hit shelves Friday in 125 countries. It's got the world's fastest auto focus, dedicated fitness tools, and is dust and water resistant.
A new fixture to control lighting and electronics could be in smart homes this fall if Kickstarter users are impressed enough.
Using a proximity sensor, tech startup iOn Switching has developed iOn, a gadget that can replace a wall-mounted lightswitch and be used with a wave of the hand to turn on and off and dim lights. It can also control fans, electric fireplaces and other devices that plug into a wall, according to the company.
Some Facebook users may be unhappy that they'll soon be required to use a separate messaging app to access the service on mobile devices, but this could be a smart strategy for the social network.
Facebook needs to be ready for the time when users abandon desktops and access the site only by mobile devices, so expanding its smartphone and tablet offerings makes sense, said John Simons, Associated Press technology and media editor.
A massive security flaw called Heartbleed has put millions of Internet users at risk for the past two years. Some experts are calling it the most dangerous bug online. Usernames and passwords and possibly credit card information may have been intercepted on what are supposed to be secure websites.
The bug causes a vulnerability in the OpenSSL cryptographic library, which is used on servers to scramble sensitive information to protect people's privacy. Two-thirds of all websites use OpenSSL, including major banks and social network sites.
Microsoft has carried out long-term plans to end customer support for its Windows XP operating system, and that could leave financial and health-care information stored by businesses vulnerable to hackers.
That's because a majority of those using the 12-year-old operating system are businesses, including big banks, according to Bridget Carey, CNET senior editor.
A $62 million revenue loss isn't enough to stop HTC from trying to win a top spot in the smartphone market. Revenues declined for the second time in three quarters, but a sliver of hope came in the form of monthly revenues, rising for the first time in 28 months.
"These are the most universally well-regarded smartphones around out on the market yet they don't sell," said Jon Swartz, USA Today's San Francisco bureau chief.

From burglars to harmful UV rays, a multitude of tech-savvy gadgets are aimed at keeping people safe in more ways than one, according to one tech expert.
Canary, a home security device that works with a mobile app, tracks motion, temperature, air quality, vibration, sound and activity, said Jesse Draper, CEO of the Valley Girl Show.
That item, for $199, will send an alert to the user's mobile phone when it detects unusual movement.
Although the Canary is cheaper than most home security gadgets, it will still have to compete against them, including the new Archos smart camera, Draper said.
Draper also noted the Zoombak GPS Locator, a multiuse device to help track the user's children or pet.
That device, for about $80, can be put in a car, on a pet's collar or in a child's pocket. Users can set personalized safety zones through the mobile app and can have their mobile devices alert them via text message or email when the Zoombak leaves or enters a safety zone.
