YouTube for Android update adds video trimming, faster uploads — Need to do a little last-minute fine-tuning to that video of your cat before you upload it to YouTube? If you're an Android user, you can now trim your video clips directly from the YouTube app before you upload.

Huawei's new Android Wear watch has hit YouTube, and it looks awesome — On Saturday, Huawei posted a pair of promotional videos to its YouTube channel that show off its as-yet unannounced Android Wear watch, and, boy, are you going to want to see what's in store. The videos, first spotted by DroidLife, show an Android Wear smartwatch with a round screen that, unlike the Moto 360, is actually completely round.

First Look: Flickr’s Camera Roll Gives You A New Way To Browse Your Photostream — Last Friday, PetaPixel reported that Flickr has added a new way to browse and manage your photos, which it calls the Camera Roll. You might find the name a little confusing if you're an iOS user-it looks more like the Moments view in Apple's Photos app than the Camera Roll.

In A World Of Smartphones, Where Does The Smartwatch Fit? — I've been something of a smartwatch skeptic. To me, smartwatches seemed to be less about providing something useful and more about fulfilling some Dick Tracy fantasy now that technology has finally caught up with Chester Gould's imagination. The Apple Watch didn't change my opinion much.

Experimental networking tech beams data across the room with light — You may not be able to get beamed up to the Enterprise any time soon, but you may one day be able to beam data around your living room-literally. Researchers at Oxford University have developed a technology that, according to IEEE Spectrum, "takes light from [fiber optic data lines], amplifies it, and beams it across a room."

Asus Zenbook UX305 is here, and it won't break the bank — If you've lusted over Asus's Zenbook UX305 Ultrabook since it was announced at last September's IFA show in Berlin, your wait is over. The company announced Monday that the UX305 is now available in the US and starts at a rather affordable $699.

Microsoft unlocks restricted features for free OneNote 2013 users — If you use the free edition of Microsoft OneNote 2013 for Windows, Microsoft has some good news for you. In a blog post published Friday, Microsoft's OneNote Team announced that it had lifted the feature restrictions that previously applied to the freebie version of Microsoft's venerable note-taking app, bringing the free "personal use" edition more in line with the premium paid edition.

Google sends Helpouts out into the sunset — Google's history is littered with products and services that seemed like good ideas at the time but never panned out. In recent years, the company has started killing off some of these services that never quite caught on, and this year, it's Helpouts' turn.

Mozilla's Shumway project works to run Flash without Flash Player — For most of us, Flash is still a big part of our online lives, even though most smartphones and tablets don't support it and a lot of online video has moved away from it. It's still common enough that if you don't have it installed on your computer, you'll encounter at least a few "missing plug-in" messages through the course of the day.

Corning aims to go beyond Gorilla Glass with Project Phire — Gorilla Glass may be the biggest name in smartphone glass, but it may soon be its own maker, no less. Meet Project Phire, Corning's attempt to produce a new material for smartphone and tablet screens that, according to Cnet, "combines the toughness of Gorilla with a scratch-resistance that comes close to sapphire."
