We're stepping into virtual reality as the first major VR product, the Samsung Gear VR headset, hits the market. And we step back into the past with scientists studying DNA from ancient parchment manuscripts to discover how we lived in ye olden days.

We find out why the privacy-focused Blackphone is getting its own app store, and learn how you can get the Beatles, Taylor Swift and other music streaming naysayers on your phone with Bop.fm. Plus, we find out what have in common: violence, mostly.

Look! Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No -- and it's not Superman either, because planned TV show " Krypton" is set before the man of steel was even born. "Dark Knight" creator David Goyer wants to focus the show on Superman's grandfather instead.

Hit play on the video and enjoy!
