In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at Google Glass, Olloclip lenses for the iPhone 6, the Candlestick Park demolition and a Think Tank Photo deal.

  • Nick Bilton explains Why Google Glass Broke. "From its unveiling in 2012, it was considered the Gadget, yearned after by everyone from nerds and chief executives, to chefs and fashionistas," he sets the scene.
  • Speaking of glass, in a MacRumors hands-on review Juli Clover tests Olloclip Macro 3-in-1 Lenses for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. And at MacStories, Charlie Sorrel reviews the Olloclip 4-in-1 Lens for iPhone 6.
  • As the local NFL franchise rebuilds its coaching staff to compete in its sun-facing stadium south of San Francisco, the Chronicle's Michael Macor captures the demolition of Candlestick Park in a set of 43 images (click on the gallery icon to see them all). There's a metaphor there somewhere.
  • Through February, Think Tank Photo will give you either an AppHouse 8 or AppHouse 10 shoulder/belt-mounted tablet case when you order one of their rugged, multifunction and secure backpacks (Perception series excluded). And when you order $50 or more of any Think Tank gear using our affiliate link you can add one more free item and get free shipping.
