The company launched Amazon Wallet, its first mobile wallet application, on the Amazon Appstore and Google Play. While Amazon is calling it a wallet, you can't actually make purchases using the app. Instead, Amazon Wallet functions as a vault to store rewards and gift cards.

Video: 'Smart Glass' Could Produce DSLR-Quality Smartphone Photos

Newly developed smart glass technology that mimics the shutter capabilities of a traditional camera could improve the pictures you snap on your smartphone.
