A list of Austin organizations that could be the first to get Google Fiber has been released. Google announced it would bring its ultra fast Internet to Central Texas in April. The connection is 100 times faster than standard Internet.

Public and non-profit organizations could apply to get the service free until 2023. City officials put together a list of 100 groups they think should be first.

The list includes Meals on Wheels, the Austin Children’s Shelter, the Zach Theater, the Austin Public Library, and several schools. Click here to see the full list.

There is no word yet on which neighborhoods will get the service first.

Listen up, clumsy iPhone users! Apple will now allow you to trade in a phone damaged by water. The company will take it unless there is evidence of corrosion in the ports or liquid under the phone's display. Evidence of water damage will knock about $120 off your trade-in value.

The first music video which claims to have been shot entirely with Google Glass is out. From the club to the yacht, entertainer Riz Nwosu turned his video shoot for "Let's Tango" into a DIY party project.

Google still hasn't set a release date for its wearable computer.  The company only says it will be sometime next year.  Watch the music video below.
