The Xperia Z2 is just as waterproof as the original Z1 and it packs a slightly larger display and better battery life -- not to mention it's several grams lighter. But at 5.2-inches, Sony's curveless flagship might be too big for its your britches.

Oculus Rift helps terminally ill woman take one last stroll in the sun

Sure, exploring the world of Minecraft with an Occulus Rift is fun, but pure entertainment isn't the VR headset's only use. Roberta Firstenberg may be a home-bound terminally ill cancer patient, but Oculus let her take a virtual trip to Tuscany before she passed.

Wu-Tang fans hope to liberate 'Shaolin' for $5 million but have a ways to go

Yes, the Wu-Tang Clan is selling the only copy of its upcoming album, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, for $5 million. Don't have that kind of cash? Not to worry, a group of fans put together a Kickstarter in hopes of putting its latest jams in the hands of ordinary people.

Remember NASA's LADEE satellite? Well, it's no more. According to the agency, the vehicle didn't have enough power to maintain orbit... so they gave it a proper galactic burial and slammed it into the lunar surface.
