7. Samsung goes green with "eco-tree"
Samsung's SMART Eco Trees rips into the company's own green policy. These new trees run on solar energy and release oxygen for a healthier environment. S-Buds also help add surrounding fragrance and change color with different options.
Yes, it's a tree. Just a tree.
The first comment on the announcing blog post: "Fertilized with S-Hit?" We've put in questions with Samsung and we'll get right back to you with the answer to that one.

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.
You can watch the video here.
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.
