SAN FRANCISCO – I love watching people experience virtual reality for the first time. The cumbersome headsets exaggerate their movements as they scan left to right, and then nod up and down.  And every time they look in another direction and spot something new, you can almost feel their amazement through the goggles.

Lately, I feel as though I’ve put on a VR headset and never took it off. Because every time I turn, it seems, I spy something truly inspirational.

There’s a lot going on out there in this High-Tech Spring of Springs. Read all about it in my latest column in USA TODAY’s Tech section.

Good morning! I sat down with CBS Overnight America’s Jon Grayson to share my take on the latest news. If you are a trucker or insomniac, you probably already knew that. But if you’re the kind of person who likes to sleep when it’s dark, you probably missed it. Fortunately for you, you can listen to the replay here.

We chatted about NetFlix’ prospects in the wake of its earnings release; the rise and fall of the once high-flying Theranos; Microsoft’s quest for real intelligence from its artificial intelligence projects; and wearables fatigue. Enjoy!
