  • YouTube ups the video ante with new support for 4K video (yes, 4096p), which will require an ultra-fast Internet connection for viewing. [From: YouTube]
  • Remember that mysterious code embedded on the U.S. Cyber Command logo? Turns out it's just boring bureaucrat-speak in hexidecimal code. [From: NPR]
  • Ben & Jerry's updated 'Scoop of Happiness' app brings augmented reality to your overpriced pints. The app reacts to B&J ice cream cartons by displaying an hallucinatory montage of flying chickens, cityscapes, farmers and more. [From: Mashable]
