If camera makers want to compete with smartphone photography, they'll need to stay close to imaging's cutting edge, which is what Panasonic's done with its new point-and-shoot camera, the Lumix DMC-LX100. At $1,000, "the camera may be expensive for a point-and-shoot, but it's not out of line for an enthusiast camera," said photography guide creator David D. Busch. [More...]

American teens spend a lot more time online than older Web surfers, yet it doesn't seem to increase their vulnerability to malicious activity. Teens last year spent a little more than four hours a day on the Net, while adults in the 50-to-64 age bracket burned two hours, 41 minutes online daily, MarketingCharts found.

Amazon may be red-faced about a security flaw in the Kindle library that it fixed once, then reintroduced in a later version, but the company so far has been silent on the issue. Though the threat level appears to be low at this point, Amazon's lack of attention to it could be troublesome. This "makes it look like they don't take security seriously," said tech analyst Rob Enderle. [More...]

Bungie is keeping skilled gamers hopping by introducing challenging extra events to its new Destiny multiplayer franchise. "Vault of Glass," a team Raid, launched Tuesday.

Instead of donning a heavy robotic exoskeleton to carry out superhuman feats, soldiers soon may be wearing something like robotic long johns. The "soft exosuit," as DARPA's flexible gear is called, could give soldiers more strength and stamina, allowing them to walk longer distances with less wear and tear to their joints. It also might be used to help civilians with mobility problems. [More...]

Apple's HealthKit could be a highly effective tool for monitoring patients with chronic conditions like diabetes or high blood pressure. However, there's perhaps no sector in which security, confidentiality and privacy are more important than in healthcare. Medical trials soon will be under way to explore the usefulness -- and potential challenges -- of Apple's HealthKit. [More...]

Taken separately, last week's announcements from Apple, Intel and T-Mobile were impressive. Intel and T-Mobile basically announced they were going to explode the existing mobile market, changing it dramatically. Apple embraced some slow-moving technologies, which should speed them up dramatically. I don't think what Apple announced is in the same league, but it also will drive change. [More...]

The Obama administration threatened Yahoo with fines of $250,000 daily if it wouldn't comply with demands to hand over user information to the NSA, Yahoo has disclosed. Yahoo had filed suit against the demands in 2007, citing the Fourth Amendment.

Google has taken a strong interest in health technology, and its acquisition of Lift Labs aligns with its goals in that field. Where Lift's efforts will be directed under Google's umbrella is not yet clear, but it already produces eating utensils for people suffering from mild to severe tremors, and it's working on a range of related products, including personal hygiene tools.

The Apple Watch is equipped with Near Field Communication technology, which enables the new Apple Pay mobile wallet. That came as a surprise, since the technology is also in the iPhone 6 -- but it will enable owners of the last two generations of iPhones to use Apple Pay as well. That's a smart tactic when Apple's trying to rope in as many Apple Pay users as it can. [More...]
