Ultimately, this all leads to a rise in preventative medicine, which keeps hospital costs down by addressing health issues before they become a problem large enough to warrant a hospital visit. Below are some of the past week's most recent articles detailing how the medical technology community is evolving to incorporate these technologies.

Asking questions like how far can this go? is often a fun exercise, and when it comes to Apple products, it's a question that's worth asking. Sometimes, it's hard to see how Apple can possibly slim down its hardware line any more, until a new part of that line emerges, somehow even thinner than the one that came before it. That's the case with the iPad Air 2, and though it's thinner than many saw coming, many other key points of the iPad Air 2 didn't come as much surprise.

When you talk about smart glasses the vast majority of people think of Google, and that is a very big hurdle to overcome if you are a company trying to break into this niche sector. Even Google, with its billions of dollars and access to the brightest minds took what seemed forever to make its Glass available for consumers. Now that it is available, it is not very clear how things are going in regards to sales because the cost puts it out of the range of many consumers, and that might be the entry for new companies looking to launch their own smart glasses.
