How would you change Google Glass (Explorer Edition)?
It’s always tough asking for people’s opinions on a device when so few instances of the hardware are available. Even a year after its release, getting hold of Google Glass (Explorer Edition) is a long and expensive process that few outside of the tech fraternity will bother with. Still, we’re fairly sure that plenty of you have at least tried a pair on — the last time we were in the same city as... Read more →

Woman wears Google Glass to SF bar and allegedly gets accosted
More fun tech-culture-clash news from the Bay Area this weekend. A woman was allegedly accosted by some angry bar patrons while wearing Google Glass. I don't entirely understand the utility behind Google Glass, but I think ultra aggressive and threatening behavior isn't the best response. (That said, it's been a long time since I've been at the bar in question -- it's a place you go to to drink PBR and listen to Misfits songs. I wouldn't advise going there to show off your latest technological... Read more →

Google shows us how it feels to wear Google Glass

photos and video
the next much better gopro? i would say so. you wouldnt need all the crap that you do for gopros and it doesn't look like a failed Russian military exploit to capture what soldiers are actually doing. the photos would be legit your eye sight photos(maybe not quality) watching the videos of your own would be almost like relapsing the event. other then a false eye with a camera what is a better personal perspective?

Google I/O 2012 is less than a day away. What do you think we can expect?
Google I/O, the company's annual developer conference (think Apple's WWDC, but for Google) starts tomorrow in San Francisco and has the possibility to be a pretty big deal. Last year at I/O, the big unveiling was Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) and Google Music. Now the big question is, what's going to happen this year?
Well, according to current rumors, we may see:
  • Android 4.1 (or 5.0) Jelly Bean?
  • Nexus tablet?
  • Google business-focused cloud service?
  • Project Glass?
Jelly Bean seems like a pretty good... Read more →

Would it be a bad idea for Google to completely open this up to all app developers?
Should they go with an a) Android model where anyone makes an app with no restrictions. b) the iOS route where an app has to be approved. c) the Apple TV route where they scout app developers and put it on themselves, or d) a highly selective mix of "b" and "c"? What do you think?
