Google Glass App Store Coming in 2014, Public Launch Around the Same Time

Glass Chick

The public release for Google Glass was first penciled in for later this year, but Google since pushed it back to sometime next year in 2014. According to new reports, Google confirmed that an app store solely for Google Glass applications would be launched around the time of the official release of Glass. Google failed to mention if the Glass store would be an addition to Google Play or a standalone service just for Glass users. 

Google Glass, while the general public is unable to buy it, has creeped into our lives for quite a while now. People seem to be more comfortable seeing it and don’t become so shocked or surprised when they see someone wearing it. It is as if Google wanted to slowly saturate our minds with the idea of wearable technology being “cool.” Probably for the best.

Who here is still looking to buy Glass when it is finally made available?

    Thats one fugly big headed ho. No me gusta

  • J Dub

    Hoping for $100 or less a set. It’s just a bluetooth device that pairs to your phone. There’s no reason this shouldn’t be low priced. $50 and it’s a no brainer.

  • Seth Merritt

    These comments depress me.

  • jt O’Brien

    I personally will be picking up Glass as soon as possible. I will hop in line for that thing like an Apple fanboy does for an iPhone.

    Upon purchasing Google glass:
    “Oh this is going to be awesome I cannot wait!”
    *opens box and puts on*
    “Alrighty, lets take a picture”
    *click, takes picture*
    “That is soooo cool! Ok now I need some apps for this thing.”
    *opens Glass store*
    “Top free apps should do for right now”
    *looks at the most popular*
    “1) Over 9000 app, 2) Scanner App, 3) PwrLVL app, 4) vegeta app, 5) DBZ 9000 app…it just keeps going. Lets download PwrLVL app.
    *downloads*
    “My childhood dream is complete. It’s everything I’ve ever wanted”
    *man-tear*

    Fin.

      You just basically described my exact future vision on when i eventually get Glass. Who cares about the people who hate on this device

    • Vernon

      That was the best comment I’ve ever seen on this site.

      • aQuickBit

        I don’t think it’s the “best” comment ever…. :P

        • Vernon

          Not ever. Just that I’ve seen on here. Keep in mind I haven’t been on this site for a year yet, and have only been reviewing comments for a month or two.

        • Vernon

          I should add… HUGE DBZ FAN… HUGE!

    • Wata Dopeur

      STFU

  • JeffColorado

    That picture just screams “elitist sarcastic bitch”.

    • SewWhat

      Ha..that’s odd… When I look at you pic it screams “over the hill balding prick with mommy issues that lead to an utter disdain and disrespect for any woman” … just saying…

  • manilaboy1vic

    oh no.. gonna see people walking around with these hideous glasses and smartwatches… :/

  • droidrazredge

    Hey look, it’s that w(b)itch that caused Sergey Brin and his wife to get a divorce and caused Hugo Barra to leave Google. Screw her!, no pun intended, and her marketing shenanigans. I can’t support products that are marketed by whores!

    • Thomas Partida

      Agreed, but I still want the glasses.

    • SewWhat

      WOW… Why is everyone blaming her?.. If Sergey and Hugo kept their private parts to themselves it wouldn’t be an issue. Takes 2 to tango.. they could have just as easily denied her advances. Is it s hard to accept that these guys that have been a central and integral to the advancement of a product that we’re all a fan of are actually, GHASP, human. Blaming her just shows your own inability to hold the folks you idolized to a modicum of reality. GROW UP!!!!

  • yummy

    Ha! Keep that glass wearing
    witch far away from me!

  • 4n1m4L

    Supposed to be called the boutique

  • John Davids

    Will be purchasing this on Day 1, as long as it is cheaper than a grand.

  • coolsilver

    As long as it isn’t $300 for one like a damn smart watch. $150 is reasonable though I rather see it sub $100

    • StuckOnVerizonForever

      LOL where can i find what you’re smoking?

      • coolsilver

        Ask Verizon

    • zurginator

      Dude it’s going to cost more than $100 in parts alone – let alone the billions in R&D they’re going to need to make up.

      • coolsilver

        I’m pretty sure at mass produced it will drop cost. Not to mention R&D has been part funded by the developer devices. Which really is minimal compared to what Google spends each year on self driving cars.

        • zurginator

          This will contain many of the most expensive parts of a smartphone, which those usually run close to $180 in parts.

          And this will not be produced in quantities anywhere near a smartphone – which means the cost of development must be defused over fewer devices.

          It is entirely possible Google will eat the dev costs (like they do for the Nexus line), but regardless it’s going to be more than $150.

  • chaoslimits

    Google keeps putting her out front? Even with (pretty much affirmed) rumors involving Hugo Barra and Sergey Brin? All publicity is good publicity… smh.

    Or is this a deep troll by Kellex :O

    • zurginator

      You know what they say — Sex sells.

  • Adamania

    As long as the price isn’t outrageous, I’ll definitely try one out.

    • Edward Smith

      That makes more sense than the actress that played Hoshi Sato on ST:Enterprise.

  • sk102704

    According to news reports, that girl right there is the reason Sergey Brin is getting a divorce.

    • StuckOnVerizonForever

      that’d be sad. She isn’t that good looking.

      • Steve Ballmer

        Good looking enough for me. Google, here I come!

        • StuckOnVerizonForever

          If you like bones, go ahead.

          • Sherlock Holmes

            Didn’t know Tyler Durden had a thing for thick women.

          • StuckOnVerizonForever

            I like nice things. I guess everyone would rather a fragile woman who couldn’t put up a fight. Besides, most of the guys here are probably ones who would take anything since they can’t find it elsewhere.

          • C Brown

            Either the glasses make her look like she has fat round face or she has a fat round face.

      • trwb

        Yea she is kind of beat

    • http://www.ashevilletechnologyservices.com Dan Brown

      NO, Serg and his wife separated a long time ago and are on good terms. This girl is recently in the picture. ..or so I choose to believe.

    • Luxferro

      If anything, he’s the reason he is getting divorced – for being either a scumbag, or weak. People need to accept the consequences of their own actions.

    • n900mixalot

      Wel’p, I don’t do chicks, and now, I know I never will.

  • T4rd

    Hmmm… cute.

    • Thomas Partida

      Yeah, that’s what Hugo thought till she left him for Sergie.

      • zurginator

        This is why you don’t bone girls you work with. It gets awkward fast.

        In other news, Chrome wanted to correct to “dont” and “akward” because so many people don’t know how to spell. I am dissapoint.

  • StuckOnVerizonForever

    I hope they stick to their word and update the hardware.

    • AbbyZFresh

      Considering that google desperately wants glass to be for mass adoption, im pretty sure they’re ready to respond as quick to any criticisms or problems regarding the use of the Glass experience
