Wow. I am in total awe of the upcoming Google Glass invention. I just heard about it a few days ago, and after reading today’s infographic, I must say that I am thoroughly impressed. Google glass seems like a futuristic contraption straight out of a sci-fi movie! Google glass is a pair of glasses frames with a small lense at the end. With this lense, you’ll be able to record videos, take pictures, access your email, look up directions, and probably a whole lot more that we don’t even know about. MIND BLOWN!

We spread too far out… in suburbs that started to become more designed like supersized Stepford subdivisions.”
The sunglasses-like augmented reality platform that Mountain View-based startup Atheer Labs announced in May doesn’t share the same polish as Google Glass. At least not yet, as it is not expected to launch to consumers until the end of next year. But it is wilder in its scope: Instead of putting information on a screen at the edge of your vision, Atheer lays it over reality in 3D. It’s an effort at true augmented reality, unlike Google Glass.
Canada’s smartphone industry pioneer BlackBerry is giving a lot more thought to taking the company private, according to a new report from Reuters. The strategy has been tabled before, but CEO Thorsten Heins and the BlackBerry Board of Directors are increasingly mulling the possibility of paying off shareholders and structuring a private equity deal to give them a chance to avoid continued public scrutiny.
