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.

Glass seems weird to me, DiTesco. I thinking looking at a laptop screen, or picking up a book or paper, requires little effort to begin with 😉 To each their own. As for twitter, looks like I suspended automation at the right time. After moving between automation and not automating, I noted this: on days where I send out only unique tweets, I generate 15 to 20 fresh, targeted followers. Even if I tweet 5 or 10 times, this number remains consistent. I generate 5 to 10 on days where I automated. Although my RTs are a bit higher on auto days I think Big Picture: running an in demand, content fresh stream is my ultimate goal.
Thanks for sharing DiTesco.
I think the idea of Google Glass is a great one, but it’s simply not practical yet. As the parody showed, it is simply dangerous in everyday life. Not only that, but as glasses, it won’t be too popular. What about people who rely on glasses anyway? Do they wear two pairs? Do they buy enhanced versions?
It’s just not going to be practical in today’s society. Smartphones are thriving because they work. People don’t want something new, they just want something better.
I agree with you on this, it is not looking a great or very useful project. I am not very fond of twitter, so I don’t think it has great use for me…

I especially agree DiTesco with Ching Ya’s article making it to this weeks list. Here post was phenomenal. Girl has talent. 😉
I really don’t know why google started Project Glass ? LOL
It is a new gadget, toy, whatever you want to call it. Google wanted to create new innovations.
