Answered: Is Google Glass Dorky or Cool?

Google Glass is coming, but will the world see through—and embrace—it’s quirkiness? Early explorers, and the people they come in contact with, are already forming opinions.

OK, Google: Try Harder to Kill the iPhone

As an Apple fan, I love former Google CEO Eric Schmidt’s new guide for iPhone users who want to switch to Android. I miss the days when fans owned an Apple product for it’s coolness, not because they thought the product would make them appear cool. I miss the days when Apple wasn’t mainstream.

Microsoft Office Vs Apple iWork Vs Google Drive

I use them all (for different things) and I believe it gives me (and you) a valuable snapshot as to what strengths each service currently plays to.

DailyTekk Find: Google Nexus Q Social Streaming Media Player

As unpopular as this opinion might be, I am going to go out on a limb here and say that with the Google Nexus Q ($299), Google has actually aesthetically out-designed Apple (in the case of media streaming devices). I love the look of this hardware, hence the 5-star coolness rating. Slap bright colored lights in any form on any product and …
