In today's tech bytes, the Motorola Razr is making a comeback.

Once the best-selling phone in the world, the new Droid Razr will be a smartphone using the Android operating system and running on Verizon's 4G LTE network.

Motorola says many people still have fond memories of their Razr flip phones, and the company hopes that affection will carry over to the Razr smartphone.

5Star Responder

If you have a chronic medical condition or just want to be ready for any emergencies, 5Star Urgent Response is a new round-the-clock service.

It connects subscribers to agents who can help with treatment, medications or other problems, either using a cell phone or a special device.

The Wall Street Journal's Katie Boehret got an exclusive first look.

"The real key here is that these agents, the service that you're paying $15 dollars monthly for, have information about you. They know your medications, your health history, your preferred hospitals. And they keep that all that information private," says Boehret.

The service goes on sale today.
