    If you have had your eye on Google's face-mounted wearable, Glass, you have probably purchased it by now, as numerous opportunities to purchase the device have come our way. If you have not, though, you will be pleased to know that Google has now made the Explorer edition Glass device available to many more people. Of course, you will still be dealing with pre-release hardware, and with that the same $1500 price tag, but if you like to be on the cutting-edge, this is the way to do it. One thing to note is that only residents of the United States aged 18 and up will be eligible to buy the ...

    Google Glass is still one of those products that many of us want to love, but that isn't really reaching the appeal that Google would want from it. So far, it's a product that's cool to have, but that hasn't proven to be quite useful since you can only interact with it through your voice in limited ways. The cool thing is to see developers hard at work in giving Glass the extra functionality it needs, and today we see its first keyboard. The Minuum keyboard has proven to be quite the thing for Android. It's a complete paradigm shift in the way keys are staggered, and how well it can ...

    If you have Google Glass, and need to quickly send money to someone, you may soon be in luck. A report allegedly from sources close to Google states that the company is testing Glassware letting users do just that, and there is even a reported voice command associated with it -- "OK Glass, send money". The feature is similar to one we have seen rolled out to users of Gmail, so we would not exactly be surprised to see a similar feature land on Glass. Many use-cases can be thought up for the functionality a Wallet app would provide on Glass, including splitting bills with friends and family, ...

    When you think of Google these days, you think of a lot of things: search, Android, Chrome, and even a digital content store, aptly named Google Play. The last thing you would likely ever tie Google directly to is a physical retail location, a brick and mortar store. No less, a report surfaced late last week suggesting Google was about to do just that … again. Currently, Google has Android stores in Australia, which go by the name Androidland. This time, Google is looking for a physical retail location for all things Google in New York City, according to Crain's NY. It's looking at an ...

    The All New HTC One won't grace us with its presence until the end of the month, and at this point we're beginning to wonder if HTC will have anything left to reveal at the announcement. From a sales guide to promotional materials to yet another undercover hands-on video, the leaks surrounding one of the year's most anticipated Android handsets refuse to let up – and we're here to talk about them in our latest pre-#ANHO podcast! Before that, of course, we've got the usual news of the week, including a duo of Samsung tablet reviews, rampant speculation about a brick-and-mortar Google ...

    You'd think that Google would make a dent in the universe with its Google Glass project, which is currently on trial by certain people that don't have anything better to do with $1,500, but that's actually not the case. I'll admit that I'm personally disturbed by people having a conversation with me and using Google Glass, since you really don't know if they're recording the conversation while looking at you. Still Samsung seems to find more use for the concept created by Google Glass, and its new patent envisions more uses as part of its Galaxy line-up as well. The company has just ...

    Not everyone sees the world in the same way. Of course that's plainly obvious if you've ever spent time in the dungeons comment sections of the internet, but it's easy to forget that it's also true in a literal sense. Not everyone sees or hears the same way you might … and that's as true for smartphone users as for anyone else. So what kind of considerations go into buying and using today's mobile technology products when you're visually impaired? What kind of brand wars exist in the world of the blind? Are we going in the right direction with audio cues and glass screens, or were the ...
