Google and adidas have joined forces on a new sneaker that, thanks to some super slick features, is capable of turning into a smart-talking shoe with a major personality. At the moment, I don’t see a need for something like this. It’s still pretty cool though. Over time, the shoe develops it’s own personality that will respond to your activity. The Talking Shoe can be snarky, motivational and excited depending on your movement that day. Oh, and if you feel like sharing your status with your entire Facebook or Google+ feed, the Bluetooth connection makes it totally possible through your phone— although we're not sure if all of our friends would need to know when our shoe is getting mad at us for skipping a run in favor of laying on the couch. Enjoy.

Google’s smartphone app team Niantic Labs has released a new multi-player gaming platform for mobile users that turns your real-world location into a virtual world. For example, if you are in Times Square in New York, the app’s built-in scatter map technology knows where you are and adds a virtual layer to it. It leads you to real statues and landmarks to continue the game. Calling the game Ingress, players operate under the premise that a strange energy has been discovered by European scientists, and it must be controlled before it controls you.

And in doing so, it pulled out all the stops, equipping skydivers with the glasses and streaming their perspectives as they swooped down at 135 mph, eventually onto the roof of the Moscone Center, where the conference was ongoing. After the divers arrived, Google co-founder Sergey Brin announced the device’s price tag: $1,500 a pair, available beginning next year to developers only—presumably to afford them the opportunity to create consumer apps before the devices have a full, commercial release.

At this point, SOPA needs no introduction. But if you've been diligently ignoring it up until this point, good luck getting through January 18th as an uninformed citizen.
Google, Wikipedia and a host of other websites are either going dark or making huge, unmistakable statements on their homepages in protest. [See & Read More]
