Magic Leap just might be the most mysterious company in tech. What we do know is that it's making a head-worn augmented reality device, and it's raised over US$540 million in venture funding (including, most notably, from Google). Today the company got slightly less mysterious, showing us our first (simulated) glimpse of what it's like to use the product.

Since mid-2013, Motorola has let you customize your own smartphone, with Moto Maker
and the Moto X
. Starting today that extends to smartwatches, with the made-to-order Moto 360
It's been more than four months since Android 5.0 Lollipop
launched alongside the Nexus 9
tablet, and today Google officially announced the first (somewhat) significant update to it, Android 5.1.
While the new MacBook
