Google Glass, as we know it, is dead. The $1,500 connected eyewear was a bust for a laundry list of reasons, not the least of which was the fact that wearing the device looks absolutely ridiculous. As it turns out, however, there are even worse designs for smart glasses, and it looks like Sony is on a mission to prove it. More →
Microsoft’s herculean efforts over the holidays were enough to temporarily push the Xbox One to the top of the charts, but now that the dust has settled, the equilibrium seems to be shifting back in Sony’s direction.

Despite countless reports, investigations and press conferences over the past several weeks, there is still a shroud of mystery surrounding the Sony Pictures hack.

The Interview is far from being a must-see movie, but that didn’t stop plenty of viewers from renting or purchasing the controversial comedy online, after hackers forced Sony’s hand last month.
