Google Now updates with new travel features, expanded voice search

Google Now, Google's own predictive search assistant, is already pretty great, but the company just made it even better, especially for frequent travelers.

Could Google+ Eat Evernote?

Information is pointless if you can't find it when you need it. That's the ethos that has driven search engines like Google just as it has "digital notebook" services like Evernote, and it's also the reason why Google+ could eat Evernote's lunch if it put its mind to it. With the news of Facebook's one billion active users, questions as to how Google+ will compete with Zuckerberg's empire have inevitably surfaced; of course, the best way to stay relevant is to offer something completely different altogether.

Space Station crew savors “new car smell” of Dragon capsule

SpaceX's Dragon capsule revealed its secrets to the crew of the International Space Station earlier today, a cache of food, equipment and "new car smell" as astronauts opened the hatch for the first time.

Golden-i takes on Project Glass

Golden-i takes on Project Glass

A couple of decades ago, wearable displays and head-mounted computers were the stuff of spy stories science fiction - which is certainly where Kopin, Inc. seems to have gotten the inspiration for Golden-i. They're calling their new device a head-mounted computer, with a bevy of integrated sensors and radios to help it along. Instead of acting like a more techy version of glasses like Google's Project Glass, the Golden-i is designed to actually fit over standard glasses or safety goggles giving it applications in all sorts of industrial capacities. Golden-i will make another trade show appearance at CTIA.

My wallet is open, Google, now hand over Project Glass

My wallet is open, Google, now hand over Project Glass

Project Glass has opened my eyes and my wallet: Google, please, come help yourself to my credit card. The much-rumored wearable augmented reality system has emerged from the Google[x] skunkworks and it's even more than we hoped for. No clunky headset like a bad pair of swollen sunglasses, but a sleek slice of transparent display with just enough Star Trek: TNG hints to keep the geeks happy. With a concept video and a handful of rumors, though, there are still plenty of questions remaining. Google hasn't talked technology regarding Project Glass, focusing instead on the potential user experience, but there's enough here to slot together a few suggestions.
