Google Glass for Sale - One Day Only!

Google Glass is finally going to be on sale to the public, unfortunately it is only going to be on sale for one day (Tuesday, April 15) and is going to run you $1500 bucks for the Explorer edition. While the price might be high I'd still venture a guess to say they will sell out very quickly as everyone wants to look like a Cyborg this summer. For more details head on over to TomsHardware.

Want a piece of Google's Glass? The company is now offering consumers a way to get into the Explorer program without the need for an invitation. The cost for the Explorer Edition will still run you $1500 plus tax, so get ready to drain the bank.

According to Google, over the past few months, the company has tried various ways to expand the Explorer program. Some have gained access through a school or university, whereas some were referred by a friend, signed up at Google I/O, and told the company what they would do with Glass via #ifihadglass. Now it's time for something different.

Still Using MSE? Stop It.

If you have been using Microsoft Security Essentials for Anti-virus, you may really want to consider changing to a different program. Microsoft announced that they weren't supporting it anymore a while ago, and now it is starting to really show the lack of support. In the analysis below, they show why it's failing and offer some good alternatives.

Those numbers might seem okay – until you look at the competitors. Avast free antivirus, for example, blocked 100% of known threats and 98% of zero-day attacks. That means that if you have 100 computers with MSE, and 100 with Avast, the group running MSE would fall victim to 14 zero-day attacks for every single attack that slips by Avast.

Samsung @ CES 2013

One of the highlights of every CES is a stop by the Samsung booth and this year didn’t disappoint. Samsung has so many products on display which makes it feel like walking through a candy story wishing you could have one of each. The big product in the TV market this year at CES is 4k displays (4096x2160 resolution) and Samsung had a bunch of those on display. Right now content is pretty tough to find in resolutions that high, but the demo clips that they were showing attracted quite a crowd.

Also on display was one of Samsung's curved OLED TV's. The curve in the screen wasn't drastic but it was enough to give the picture a bit of a different look and thanks to the OLED technology the picture was great.

iPhone 5 Hands-on

If you have been waiting for the next generation of iPhone your wait is almost over. September 20th is the day both the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C start to ship. Engadget has some hands-on time with the iPhone 5S and shares their thoughts over here.

As you may have already heard, the 5s is rather similar in overall hardware to the iPhone 5, though there are a few changes in key places. As you can see in the above image, it's available in three colors: space grey (which has black highlights on top and bottom), white and -- as rumored so many times -- gold.
