Google Glass Available Once Again to General Public, Still Costs $1500 (Updated)

Back on April 15, Google opened up the Explorer program for anyone who wanted to own a pair of Google Glass. Unfortunately, Glass sold out that day, so not everyone who wanted a pair could get one.

Today, it appears that Google Glass is now back up for sale through the Glass Store, and anyone with $1500 can buy a pair, no invite required.  (more…)

Google Glass XE16 Factory Image Available for Download

We are only a day or two removed from Google pushing out the major XE16 update to Google Glass, yet you can already download the factory image for the wearable. This isn’t there to be used to update your device; you should have done that over-the-air. This file is instead there in case your tinkering ways lead you down a dark dirty hole filled with bricks.

Tuesday Poll: Are You Buying Google Glass Today?

Not that we expect a high percentage of the DL community to pick-up Google Glass, but we figured we should at least ask since it’s available. It’s poll time.

At $1,500, you can take sweet selfies like the one I just included in this post, become a certified Glasshole, and enjoy the world staring at you everywhere you go thanks to the futuristic beacon attached to your head.

OK, it has more uses than that. For example, you could take awesome photos of your kid in action without having to pick up your phone, can see Google Now cards without ever lifting a finger, and can get Google Maps directions placed just above your eye as you drive. Glass does have some redeeming qualities, it’s just so damn expensive in its current form.

But hey, it’s there today, if you want it. Are you buying it?

Google Joins Forces with Luxottica for Google Glass, Retail Availability Looms Closer
