I have come to terms with the notion that we will all soon be wearing glasses in order to surf the Web, check messages and pretend we work at Google.
Some, though, are still concerned that the glasses offer too much opportunity to photograph or film people surreptitiously.
Defenders of the Google faith point out that no, no, you can tell when the glasses are in use. There’s a light that beams to the world.
A twisted few find this unfortunate. They want to be cleverer than thou and more creepy than thou.
May I present, therefore, the very fine Google Glass 3D Printed Sunshade?
This is the invention of Chris Barrett, a PR man who has made some hay by being a Google Glass explorer and, well, exploring the boundaries of life and taste.
It was he who was first to film an arrest using his new glasses.
It was also Barrett who wandered into an Atlantic City casino beglassed. And, in what seemed then as the apogee of Glassing fame, Bon Jovi’s keyboard player … [Read more]

Taking the Skully heads-up display helmet for a spin
SAN FRANCISCO — The scariest thing about riding a motorcycle are the cars and trucks. To help riders deal with big, boxy, and often lethal vehicles, the Skully P1 motorcycle helmet sticks a Google Glass-style heads-up display, rear-view camera, and Bluetooth in the helmet.

We knew it was coming, and it might have taken a little longer than expected, but Google Play Music for iOS is finally here. The long-awaited iPhone app hits the App Store exactly six months after it was announced for Android and the desktop, and like its counterparts, offers free access to 20,000 of your uploaded tracks, letting you create playlists and also share songs with friends. However, you might be tempted to grab a free month’s trial for its All Access streaming service (normally $ 9.99 a month), which gives you access to over 20 million tracks, lets you create your own radio stations and discover new music using its smart recommendation features. 9to5mac reports that Google is working to deliver an iPad version of the Play Music app and aims to bring its “I’m feeling lucky” feature and improved playback features in the near future.
