Hello everyone! Hope you all had a great week. You may already have heard about Google unveiling a concept called “Project Glass“. Essentially, the device, that resembles eyeglasses, takes all the functionality of a smartphone and places it into the see-through lens displaying lots of information, from text messages to maps to reminders. As the team over at project glass states:
We think technology should work for you—to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don’t.
Project Glass, one day…
And a short modified version of some possible “pitfalls” from wearing it.. (parody)
So what do you think, are we really going to need this digitally enhanced glasses eventually?
Anyway, on a side note, it seems that Google is not the only one focused on attacking spammers. Twitter this week decided to take the “fight” up a notch and filed legal suits against some “automated” Twitter services. It appears that services such as “TweetBuddy” and even “TweetAdder”, are amongst the defendants of this legal assault. Read more about it here.
