Google showed off some new features of Google Glass at SXSW, and they look to be quite useful. For example, the New York Times will be integrated with Google Glass, so you'll see pop up notifications of breaking news. You can even peep pictures, headlines or have Google Glass read the news to you.


Path, the social networking app that does a little bit of everything, has added some new features in its latest update. Path 3.0 now does private messaging (one-to-one or group), has something called 'Stickers' which are like Emojis on steroids and is opening up a new shop for you to buy stuff from. Basically, more of a little of everything.

Then I said, "Oh, you probably don't like it when I mention the competition when I'm in here, eh?"
