Fitbit recently introduced three new fitness wristband trackers — one of which the company is calling a "superwatch" for the ability to get smart notifications like incoming calls and text messages on its screen.
But let's not be mistaken: The Fitbit Surge is not a smartwatch, even though some are calling it that. True to Fitbit's core of being a fitness tracker before anything else, the Surge will monitor steps taken, calories burned, continuous heart rate and more. And yes, it can display incoming calls and texts, too — but unlike smartwatches, you aren't able to respond, check emails or watch videos.

Iceland's Bardarbunga volcano has now emitted the most lava of any volcano in that geologically active country since at least 1947, and continues with no sign of stopping. The volcano is also emitting clouds of toxic sulfur dioxide gases, which have made it all the way to Europe at times, thanks to northwesterly winds
The eruption is taking place in an old lava field known as Holuhraun, and according to National Geographic, the volcano has now vaulted so much molten rock to the surface that it would fill at least 740 Empire State Buildings. The total area of lava spewed out by the volcano is 64.6 square kilometers as of Oct. 28, which works out to about 25 square miles.

Someone call the police — we have a code cute
A picture of a 9-week-old German Shepherd wearing an oversized bulletproof vest has stolen the hearts of the Internet after being posted to Reddit on Monday by user grizzlyblake91. The image, taken in May, was originally posted on Massachusetts Vest-A-Dog's Facebook page as promotion for their 2015 calendar.
The adorable pup, originally named Batman, was renamed Tuco, after Tuco Salamanca from AMC's Breaking Bad. Tuco is now 6 months old
Tuco is pictured alongside his owner, Patrol Officer Troy Caisey, the head trainer of the Boston Police Department’s K-9 Unit. Tuco is currently in training to be Caisey's next "work dog," Caisey tells Boston Magazine Read more...More about Pics, Dogs, Puppies, and Watercooler
LAGUNA BEACH, California — Not content with organizing all the world's information, Google is taking its first steps inside the human body.
The company is researching nanoparticles that bind themselves to cancerous cells and other forms of disease, Google revealed on Tuesday at the WSJD Live conference here, adding that the research is part of the Google X program that investigates long-term, pie-in-the-sky technologies
It isn't expected to be commercialized for many years. But Andrew Conrad, head of Google's Life Sciences division, revealed that experiments had already begun around designing and testing tiny intravenous machines taken in pill form. Read more...More about Google, Health, Tech, and Google X
The Italian newspaper La Repubblica reported one of the great recent discoveries in the art world last week. It claimed that 90-year-old Mina Gregori, one of the doyennes of Italian art history, had found the famously lost masterpiece of the Magdalene in Ecstasy in a European private collection outside Italy. If it is the real thing, its insurance value would be in excess of 20 million pounds ($32.3 million).
The painting is by the radically innovative early Baroque painter Caravaggio. It has previously only been known through several copies, at least one of which had been erroneously claimed as the original. It used to be thought that the picture was painted in 1606 just after Caravaggio had fled from Rome after killing a man in a brawl (or duel). But now the evidence suggests that he painted it a little later, and that he was carrying Magdalene in Ecstasy on a felucca (a traditional sailing boat) in July 1610.

For the sixth consecutive quarter, Facebook beat Wall Street estimates.
The company posted earnings on Tuesday of $0.43 per share and topped $3 billion in revenue for the first time, a gain of more than 50% from the revenue it reported in the same quarter a year earlier. Much of that was thanks to its success on mobile; mobile ads accounted for nearly $2 billion in revenue, or two-thirds of Facebook's total ad revenue.

Vice President Joe Biden is causing controversy after TIME reported he, at least four Cabinet secretaries, and other Obama administration officials used a lodge in the Grand Tetons for vacations.
The National Park Service is now reviewing its policy for VIP stays at the lakeside vacation lodge; a policy adopted in 1992 restricted the use of the property to official business only.
Biden and a dozen family members spent four August nights at the Brinkerhoff Lodge, built in 1946 and operated by the National Park Service. However, the four-bedroom log cabin is supposed to be restricted to official use like conferences, training or for federal employees participating in park events.

In the Guinean village where the current West African Ebola outbreak began, 14 graves mark the spot where the lethal virus began to spiral out of control.
International aid workers who recently visited Meliandou say nothing is normal anymore and that families have been ripped apart by the devastating toll of the virus.
The first known victim of the current outbreak was 2-year-old Emile Ouamouno, who lived in the picturesque forest village with his parents and three sisters, including 4-year-old Philomene
The boy fell sick last December with a mysterious illness that caused fever, black stools and vomiting. About a week after his death, Philomene got sick and died. She was shortly followed by the children's pregnant mother and grandmother. Read more...More about Guinea, Us World, Us, World, and Disease
Rob Hoback doesn't really know Patricia Henson, but she works at his doctor's office and they talk about baseball — Royals baseball, in particular — every time he comes in. She recently had open-heart surgery
So, with the World Series headed back to Kansas City and the Royals in a 3-2 hole, Hoback did something truly heart-warming: Paid $1,800 to buy Henson, essentially a stranger, two tickets for Game 6 on Tuesday night

Twitter is about to get real #spooky.
R.L. Stine, often endearingly referred to as the Stephen King of children's literature, announced that he will be writing a new scary story on Tuesday — entirely on Twitter
For Halloween, I'll be writing a story live on Twitter this evening. Hope you'll join me.
— R.L. Stine (@RL_Stine) October 28, 2014
Stine didn't reveal any further details, like timing or topic. Cliffhanger.
The author began writing scary stories for children in the late ‘90s with the Fear Street series. In 1992, he started Goosebumps, and at age 71 still continues to publish stories under that label. His next book, A Nightmare on Clown Street, is set for release this February Read more...More about Twitter, Halloween, Watercooler, and Goosebumps
Poor, poor Hunahpu
The unwise tribe has used up all but a handful of its rice rations and is now in a dire situation that can only be remedied by the man who loves having ultimate Survivor power, Jeff Probst. In our short interview below, Probst reveals that he had been hoping the Hunahpu food drama would reach a level that required his interference
So what exactly happens in Wednesday's episode when Probst walks over to the tribe, literally carrying the answer to the group's problems? Well, the host says, his demand involves less nudity than when Jenna and Heidi disrobed on Survivor: Amazon in exchange for peanut butter and chocolate cookies. But that was a conscious choice.

Cable companies have enjoyed a regulatory buffer from Internet competitors when it comes to television. Those days may be numbered, opening the door for companies like Aereo to compete with companies like Comcast and Time Warner Cable.
FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said on Tuesday that he has circulated a proposal that would change the regulations that preclude Internet companies from becoming "multi-channel video providers" (MVPDs), such as cable and satellite TV providers.
The adoption of these rules — which still must go through a vote of adoption, a comment period, then another vote — would open a flood of competition in what has traditionally been a closed market. Previously, many companies, including Internet-based operations such as Aereo and Ivi, were precluded from becoming MVPDs. Read more...More about Online Video, Fcc, Business, Media, and Tv
Facebook just had its first $3 billion quarter
The company reported earnings of $0.43 per share on revenue of $3.2 billion in the September quarter, coming in ahead of analyst estimates for earnings of $0.40 per share on revenue of $3.12 billion. That's up nearly 60% from its revenue of $2.02 billion in the same quarter a year earlier.
"These results show that Facebook is getting stronger every day," Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook's cofounder and CEO, said during the earnings call on Tuesday
Mobile ad revenue, once a concern for the company in its first months as a public company, accounted for two-thirds of total ad revenue in the third quarter. Facebook has ramped up its mobile ad products since the IPO and unveiled a mobile ad network earlier this year. Read more...More about Facebook, Stocks, and Business

Canada honored a soldier who was gunned down while standing guard at the country's National War Memorial with a regimental funeral on Tuesday
Cpl. Nathan Cirillo was laid to rest in his hometown of Hamilton on Tuesday, after a motorcade carried his body from Ottawa on Friday.
Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, a 32-year-old Muslim, shot and killed Cirillo before firing shots inside a Parliament building on Oct. 22. Canadian authorities have uncovered a video recorded by Zehaf-Bibeau prior to the attack which they say confirms that he was driven by ideological and political motives.

DALLAS — American Airlines and US Airways will combine their frequent flier programs early next year and, for now, still base free flights on how many miles customers fly.
Competitors Delta and United plan to base awards on how much customers spend, which helps travelers who buy expensive first-class and business-class tickets.
But executives of American Airlines Group Inc. said Tuesday that they want to deal with the mechanics of folding the US Airways program into American's AAdvantage before addressing such a major change. The combined program will have about 100 million members. Read more...More about American Airlines, Business, Us, Travel Leisure, and Work Play
