Google Glass 2 coming in 2016, but not for you

Google Glass 2 coming in 2016, but not for you

The second big release for Google Glass is on its way, but not in the way the remaining "Glass for Fun" enthusiasts might've hoped. Instead it would seem that those pushing for an enterprise angle for the headset have gotten their wish. This second-generation Google Glass won't be built for the public. It'll be built for businesses. While the possibility remains that Glass for Fun could pop up, for now it's more of a pipe dream for the average citizen and lover of leisure.

Bubble Wrap will soon lose its pop

Bubble Wrap will soon lose its pop

The one company that makes Bubble Wrap has decided to move forward with a lot less air. They've revealed a new product for shipping that does the same thing for products, but a lot less for those lovers of popping the otherwise-trashed bubbles after the unwrap. Instead of each individual bubble being inflated with air, the new wrap, called iBubble, will come with a row of bubbles connected by tubes. As such, each long tube of bubbles will have one air chamber instead of a bunch. No more popping.

Looks like Google Glass 2, but it’s not for you

Looks like Google Glass 2, but it’s not for you

This morning an FCC listing for what appears to be Google Glass 2 has appeared. But it doesn't matter. The first version of Google Glass was a hit on the tech news circuit - people even spend a bunch of cash to be the first to own the device. But it didn't work out in ideal a fashion as Google had hoped. Unchecked enthusiasm and a never-ending stream of stories about Glass-holes made sure of that. The second edition of this device won't be made for the average consumer.

iPhone 6s camera details leaked: 240fps slow motion

iPhone 6s camera details leaked: 240fps slow motion

Apple's iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus camera array documents leak from what appears to be their manufacturing plant company, Foxconn. These documents suggest that the next iPhone's camera array will allow the next iPhones to once again reign supreme over the competition. This is particularly important this generation as both LG and Samsung inch ever closer to overtaking the camera crown in the smartphone business. Several reviewers suggest that the companies have already out-done Apple with their own cameras aboard the Galaxy S6 and the LG G4.

iPhone 6s details leaked with hardware images

The next iPhone has appeared in a number of hardware images said to come from the manufacturing plant where they were made. These images show an iPhone 6s that looks extremely similar to its predecessor, showing only minor chances inside the machine's bust. This device has been rumored to be coming with a new Force Touch feature which ads a dimension of functionality to the machine's user interface with a longer push on its display. Similar processor and camera specifications are expected.

Third-Gen Moto G: 3 reasons why you don’t need to upgrade

Third-Gen Moto G: 3 reasons why you don’t need to upgrade

As Motorola's third-generation Moto G begins to show itself in leaked photographs, we take another look at the original. Why upgrade to a newer model when the original is still running strong? We'll tell you why - there's no real good reason to upgrade at all. Motorola made a device that's so compelling all the way back in December of 2013 that people are still using it. They had a rather strong piece of hardware on their hands, then they updated its software - multiple times. What's left to do?

Samsung Galaxy S6 Active Review

Samsung Galaxy S6 Active Review

Today we review the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active from AT&T. This device takes the innards of the Galaxy S6, expanding the exterior bits to make a device that's resistant to the elements as well as shock. You can drop this one. While the original Galaxy "Active" device wasn't quite as resistant to the one truest danger of all, dropping the darned thing, here we've been given a reprieve. And a good sign for the future. This device has everything the Galaxy S6 has, and more - a bigger battery too.

Microsoft Lumia 640 Review: Cricket’s scrappy cyan warrior

Microsoft Lumia 640 Review: Cricket’s scrappy cyan warrior

The Microsoft Lumia 640 isn't all that remarkable on its own. It's another Windows Phone device, made by the people who up until this past year were known as Nokia. Now it comes from Microsoft, and it's ready to roll for a cool $130 USD. That's a good value for what the device presents. But with today's Elop exit and news of Microsoft's reshuffling, is it a good time to be buying in to Microsoft's phone ecosystem? Or is this the company's last gasp before throwing in the towel?

StarVR 5K 210-degree VR headset reborn

StarVR 5K 210-degree VR headset reborn

The first experience you're going to have on the 5K-toting StarVR might well be the most terrifying. This headset was previously called "InfinitEye" before the company was acquired by Starbreeze AB. This week Starbreeze Studios have announced that this headset would be renamed "Project StarVR." The acquisition of one company by the other means that InfinitEye is now part of Starbreeze, and that the two are more powerful and far more well suited for the quickly expanding VR ecosystem than they were apart.
