HTC has introduced the One M8 smartphone, which is taller and wider than it's predecessor, while remaining just as thin. The company lined up the announcement of the new phone with its launch date, making the phone available to order from AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile immediately following its introduction. The phone has many impressive features, like dual rear cameras and added sensors. But the question still remains - will people actually buy it?

Google will be hosting free virtual workshops this week for small businesses through its "Get Your Business Online Week" program.

They'll also see website-building demos and get advice on how to be found by customers on Google Search.

Cisco Systems announced that it will be teaming up with a number of different vendors to create an online network of clouds known as the global Intercloud.

Microsoft will soon be ending support of Windows XP, and the company is eager for consumers to upgrade. Just how eager are they?
