TechBytes: Osama Bin Laden, The Computer Virus

Emails claiming authentic photos are bogus.

May 4, 2011— -- In today's TechBytes, beware Osama bin Laden. The FBI is warning computer users against e-mails that claim to show photos or videos of the death of the al Qaeda leader. The photos are fakes and the messages contain a virus that can steal personal information or infect your computer. (The government said today that no death photo of Bin laden will be released.)

eBay Fashion iPhone App

If you're looking to get a pair of sunglasses this spring, then you may want to check out eBay's new fashion app. The Wall Street Journal's Katie Boehret says that the app pairs the latest augmented reality technology with your smartphone's front-facing camera for a customized shopping experience.

"It essentially lets you try on things like sunglasses. So you can see how they would look on your face and you can page through all sorts of brands and styles of sunglasses, and if you like one it will send you directly to eBay to buy those sunglasses," said Boehret. The app is available for the iPhone 4.
