Twitter has nearly 320-million monthly active users. And a new study claims up to 15 percent of them are run by "Bots", that can "Like" and "Retweet".

Google and levi's are taking Smartwear to a whole new level! The companies joined forces for a "Smart" jacket. "The commuter" connects to your Smart phone via Blue tooth. It allows the wearer to get directions, adjust the volume of their music or even answer the phone. It's out this fall for 350 dollars.

Those are your Tech Bytes.
