A couple meditates during celebrations for the end of the Mayan cycle known as Bak'tun 13 and the start of the Maya new age, on December 21, 2012, in the Copan archaeological park, 400km northwest of Tegucigalpa.

In the fast-moving world of Silicon Valley it seems there's a hot new trend every minute. Google Glass, 3-D printing, and smart watches are already last week's news. Now, the latest buzz word on the lips of the tech savvy is "Om."
