I can see the use case for Google Glass in certain industries. If you’re a surgeon, for example, I can imagine it would be useful having an eyepiece giving you real-time data while you’re in the middle of the operation. But when it comes to being something that the average person will wear with them at all times, it is just not going to work. I saw a guy wearing Google Glass in public about a month ago and I immediately wanted to kick sand in his face despite the fact that I’m a giant nerd myself.

Remember all the recent reports saying that while the iPhone 7 won’t have an OLED display, it’s likely that Apple will come out with an OLED iPhone by 2018?

Virtual private networks (VPNs) are supposed to help users protect their online privacy. VPN services obfuscate the user’s real IP address by routing traffic through other international servers. There are plenty of online companies who offer free or paid access to VPN subscriptions that many users rely on to avoid geofences (read: access Netflix U.S. content from anywhere in the world), download pirated content or just to simply mask their online activity to enhance privacy protection.
However, a discovery has revealed that VPN services aren’t as secure as you’d think, as a huge security flaw can apparently expose the real IP address of their users.
After this year’s busy Black Friday 2015 shopping spree, you’ll have less than a couple of days to rest before the next significant chapter of your Christmas 2015 shopping season begins. Many Cyber Monday deals have already been announced that cover all sorts of products – see a selection of tech deals at this link – but in what follows we’re going to focus on a different category of products: Travel and vacation bundles.
Amazon’s first foray into hardware went shockingly well, and the Kindle line of eBook readers really did change the world.

These prices expire on Cyber Monday, November 30, so don’t waste any time! Also don’t forget to sign up for a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime right here. More →
Most of the time, iPhone rumors promise exciting things. However, the latest iPhone 7 rumor makes me feel very annoyed. Via 9to5Mac, Japanese Apple blog Macotakara claims that Apple has plans to completely remove the 3.5-millimeter headphone jack from the device. This would mean that the only way to connect headphones to the device in the future would be either via Bluetooth or the Lightning port. More →
