Microsoft says it will buy Nokia’s smartphone division in a deal worth more than $7 billion dollars. It’s a very Apple-like move which will put Microsoft in control of the hardware and software on its Lumia line of smartphones.

A surgeon in Ohio used Google Glass to livestream a routine knee surgery. He borrowed the glasses from his colleague, who was selected by Google as part of their “explorer” program. Students were able to watch the surgery from his point of view in real time.

Amazon is launching a new program called Matchbook that lets you buy discounted Kindle versions of the physical books you’ve already purchased from them.
