Web Exclusive: Google Glass getting more stylish with new partnership

Posted: Updated:

(CBS) - Google is trying to make its Google Glasses a bit more fashionable.  The company announced a partnership with the Italian company Luxottica, which makes Ray Ban and Oakley glasses.  They'll design frames for the internet-connected eyewear that look a sleeker.  So far Google has only sold its Google glasses to a select group of about ten thousand people.  

How'd you like to get paid to buy a new computer?  Microsoft says if you're still using windows XP it will give you 100 dollars towards a new computer.  Microsoft will stop supporting the 13 year old operating system in April.  Analysts say at least 10% of government computers still run on the old system, so do many bank ATM machines, which could pose a challenge when Microsoft stops providing tech support for XP.  

Tomorrow, another tech company will go public.  King Digital Entertainment, which makes the popular app-based game "Candy Crush Saga" makes its initial public offering at the New York Stock Exchange.  "Candy Crush" was the most downloaded app and top revenue producer last year on Apple's app store.

Is American Eagle launching a new dog line called, American Beagle Outfitters?  The clothing company posted a preview on its blog, touting the doggie bikinis and button downs.  
The company wouldn't say whether this was actually an April Fools Day joke.  Either way, American Eagle says its trying to raise $100 thousand dollars for the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty for Animals.  With a dollar from every purchase of three items or more on ae.com going towards the charity.
