Introducing: Google Glass

Mar 07, 2013 No Comments by

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. — The United States technology industry is one of the most advanced in the world, creating products that shape our mobile and internet experience every year at lightning fast speed. Two of tech giants that set the standard for modern products are Google and Apple. Apple has been non stop with its domination of inventing new products since the introduction of the iPod in 2001 to the unveiling of the iPad in 2010.

Since then, Apple has been dormant – possibly losing its momentum as Google steps into the spotlight. Recently, Google released its new Chromebook Pixel laptop, receiving positive reviews and creating buzz over their latest product: Google Glass.

Google Glass are, as its name suggests, glasses that have the ability to take pictures, record video hands free, chat live with Google’s Skype-esk application called Hangout, give directions using Google Maps, send text messages, search the web, translate using Google Translate, and much more.

While Google Glass will open a new category of wearable internet technology, critics are concerned that their privacy might be at stake.  Anyone can simply photograph or record anyone unknowingly. Nonetheless, the product will be available at the end of 2013 in time for the holiday season.

About the author

I was born in Guadalajara, Mexico – a very Americanized city where the people are powered by Starbucks, available conveniently on every street corner. Then I moved, and grew up in the strangest place on Earth, Humboldt County. I was only three when I moved to the States, however I did come back to Guadalajara every summer up until my teen years. The two places are polar oposites – you can imagine my difficult time trying to find a personality in home influenced by Mexicans and a social life influenced by Americans. Today I live in San Rafael, California studying Communications. But enough selling out – I’m a laid back guy who loves pizza.
