Happy Friday, everyone. We've all made it through another work week and now it's time to kick back, relax, and check out the tech stories that made headlines today. So we'll start with this - Apple's OS X Mountain Lion racks up over 2 million downloads in 48 hours. And the next big story comes from Google - Project Glass details and Google+ hangout coming Monay. And if you're in the mood for some good news for smartphone shoppers, how about this? Best Buy lowers iPhone 4 price to $50 on contract.

Featured: We have one featured article to showcase today, and it comes from our product guru Chris Burns. Now, we've already taken the Saumsung Galaxy S III through just about every test possible, so it would be difficult to come up with a product-related Galaxy S III article that offers something different, but we did it - Garnet red Samsung Galaxy S III hands-on. So that's that.

Battlefield 3, HTC One X, & Apple Prototypes: And finally, it's time to check out some of the less pressing but still interesting stories of the day. First up is one for gamers - Battlefield 3 Facebook ads led to 440% return for Electronic Arts. Next up is one from the mobile world - there's an update to HTC's One X phone: AT&T HTC One X drops to $99 this Sunday. And finally, check this out - Even more Apple prototypes surface.
