  1. Google glass has a horrible chill to pull ratio. Even if I could be convinced that I needed access to stuff constantly in my line of vision, I’d need it to be more discrete. Google Contact Lens. Might be a hassle… I got it, Google Microchip – implanted into my visual cortex, overlays my notifications into my perception of vision. Electrical impulses of my thoughts control what I’m looking at. When google makes that, they can charge me whatever they want. 

  2. It’s quite sad that Google only started advertising Android Wear after Apple stepped in. Google did it first, then Google started playing catch up. Same thing with mobile payments. 

  3. Seeing as their investment in Magic Leap and the discontinuation of the Explorer project came one after the other, I’m sure they’re related. They’ll use Magic Leap technology in whatever the next iteration of Glass is.

  4. Meanwhile as Google is continuing to human the boundaries of human capabilities in technology, Apple continues to milk what’s left of their ignorant fanboys dry.

  5. Google isn’t giving up on Glass: https://youtu.be/wpVQamBeOpI. But the coolest thing I heard is that Google a TAG Huer are working together to make an Android Wear watch. 

  6. This guy doesn’t know shit. Glass was never meant to be “launched”. It was bad timing of unfortunate internal politics going on & wanting real world feedback. I guess some marketing execs are responsible for both. Even the glass team were opposed to releasing it to the public; case-in-point: Babak Parviz, Head of Glass at the time, was so furious that he quit and joined amazon. And also, privacy wasn’t the number 1 problem; it was hardware & battery.
