1. Google brings coordinate searches back to Maps
When Google redesigned their Maps site, the search engine giant removed the ability to right-click to get quick directions using only latitude and longitude. They must have realized their mistake because now the feature is back.
When you right-click any location on a map, you have – once again – the ability to get directions and launch the “What's here?” feature.

2. Google is also showing you all of the polar bears
Also from Google Maps, with Google Street View you can check out Churchill, Manitoba – home to the world's largest natural polar bear habitat. Seriously, a feature that just lets you look at polar bears. Google has partnered with Polar Bears International to bring you the feature to celebrate International Polar Bear Day.
3. Apple TV is giving away $25 in iTunes – but not for long
Apple TV is revamping the look of their set-top box and in advance of the face lift, you can get a $25 iTunes gift card when you buy the current Apple TV version. You can redeem the gift card at the iTunes Store, the App Store or iBooks, but there is some fine print – it's only valid while supplies last, is limited to five per household, and the deal is only valid until March 5.

4. Drag this, or drag that with Dragdis extension
Dragdis, a Chrome extension that was in beta until now, lets you save whatever you want – texts, videos, links and more – just by dragging and dropping.
How does it work? Instead of bookmarking or “starring” a URL, you can just drag and drop whatever you want to save into a folder created by Dragdis. The folder then lets you categorize and presents a tile-like appearance to better sift through your favorites.

5. Tracking your night running just got better – and brighter
If you're a night runner, this jacket might be for you. Similar to a lot of other wearable devices that track your fitness, the Glowfaster Jacket (a Kickstarter project) lets you know if you're keeping pace, but in a new way. The jacket lights up when the runner is at the peak of their workout and syncs to your paired smartphone. It also doubles as reflective gear for safety.
