Google Glass

Glass sheds a few of its initial limitations with the latest update rolling out to Explorers now

We know not many people have Google Glass at this point so this may feel like rubbing salt in the wound, but Google Glass is receiving an update today to improve the experience in a few important areas. First up are voice controls, which are expanding to handle incoming and outgoing text messages, answering incoming calls and sharing directly with individuals by name all with voice-only commands. Adding to this expansion of communication, Google Glass can now interact with your entire Google Contacts list, rather than the previous ten favorite friends list before.

Additionally, and possibly most surprisingly, Google has included full web page viewing from Google Search results in Glass. Now after making a search, users can tap on a "View website" screen to be taken to a full view of the page where they can scroll up and down with two fingers on the touch pad or hold two fingers and move their head to pan around the page.

The update will be rolling out over the air for the lucky Google Glass users among us in the next couple of days.

I would have to see how they work before I get them but for me being a techy I will get them when they first come out lol. Looks great Google keep it up.

Once they become available for cheap(er), I'll get a pair. Probably with reading glasses. But it would be nice for them to be right from the begining, once they're easily available.

I'm more interested in when that game they're doing will be open for everyone.
