Obama's last budget calls for better infrastructure, cybersecurity — President Obama, for instance, wants to spend $300 billion over the course of a decade to fund incentives for clean-energy vehicles and improve America's transportation infrastructure - think mass transit and light rail lines, among other things.

3Doodler is back with a cute, safe 3D printing pen for kids — In case you haven't been keeping up with the movers and shakers in the maker space, 3Doodler's formula is dead-simple. Each pen comes with a starter pack of plastic strands - stick one in the pen, turn it on, and extrude that plastic into fanciful figures or faithful reconstructions.

Samsung's Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge say hello in leaked photos — Let's start from the back. The first photo -- obtained by -- doesn't offer the most tantalizing view of Samsung's new S7, but it does seem to validate a handful of reports that have made the rounds these past few weeks.

Earin's wireless earbuds are ambitious but flawed — The experience starts with a stainless-steel tube and a carrying case/battery into which you stick the buds. Its 600mAh cell should charge each of the buds' 60mAh batteries about three times, and that's pretty much exactly what I saw during my testing.

Apple says the iPhone-breaking Error 53 is a security measure — "We protect fingerprint data using a secure enclave, which is uniquely paired to the touch ID sensor. When iPhone is serviced by an authorised Apple service provider or Apple retail store for changes that affect the touch ID sensor, the pairing is re-validated," the statement reads.

Mozilla will stop supporting Firefox OS for smartphones in May — This announcement isn't without precedent, either. Ari Jaaksi, Mozilla's SVP of Connected Devices, said at the Mozlando developer event last December that the company's great smartphone experiment would soon draw to a close. "Firefox OS proved the flexibility of the Web, scaling from low-end smartphones all the way up to HD TVs," he noted at the time.

Ubuntu's first tablet doubles as a desktop, goes on sale in Q2 — Ubuntu's tablet ambitions stretch back for years -- Canonical released an Ubuntu installer for the original Nexus 7, and a preview version of Ubuntu Touch was made available for the Nexus 10. It's a little surprising that it took this long for a full-blown Ubuntu tablet to hit the market, but better late than never, we guess.

Chris - START.
