Google Glass 2: Enterprise Edition revealed in photos

The second edition Google Glass header has appeared, and it looks... very similar to the first.

Neil deGrasse Tyson’s science on Star Wars: The Force Awakens

This morning astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson shared his observations of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. "With only mild spoiler alerts," he said. As such, we're rating this article "Mostly Spoiler Safe" - but have applied the "SPOILER ALERT" sticker anyway.

Why the Samsung Galaxy S7 will leapfrog iPhone 7 for true believers
