8. Guardian Goggles
Move over Google Glass, The Guardian has its own version heading out the door for April 1, 2013. Not wanting to be outdone by Google's own augmented reality bit of kit, the London-based newspaper is "launching" its own set of specs to offer "immersive liberal insight."
Look at some trash along the street? Read an article on eco-waste. See a gas-guzzler Hummer on your way? Learn more about carbon emissions. You name it, you see it, you read it.

9. Bing goes Google
If you wander down over to Bing today, you're surely in for a surprise. Microsoft is swiping a jibe at Google by changing how it looks if you search for "google" in the rival search engine. It's still regular Bing under the surface, though. And just for extra heart-ripping measure, you can either "Search" or hit the soon-to-be infamous "I'm Feeling Confused" button instead.
Type "google" in at Bing now.
10. Google takes on Gmail "Blue"
"How to we completely redesign something and recreate something while keeping it exactly the same?"
That's Google's swipe at "Blue," the codename for the next-generation update for Windows that has been reported on in recent weeks. Microsoft's Blue project will ultimately revamp Windows 8's "Metro" user interface with some tweaks and new features later this year, along with some other hidden, unknown mysteries. Oh, you guys.
