    Yes, I saw that the other day.

    Looks like it might be very popular if they can get it working the way they want.

    Very popular you said ? it will put the iPhone out of market .... may be too pricey to replace the cheap Android, but i guess Google care less about it, lol..If I was MS , I will take care of their desktop users, and don't piss them too much with their forced metro stuff, Google is climbing more and more every year.

    Yes, I think it won't be cheap.

    Not at first anyway. That will limit the initial take up.

    Brilliant idea - good luck to them.

    Cool but I'd rather gouge my eyes out than wear a HUD all day long.

    what else to expect from you ? , if it's not a typewriter it's not good.

    I find the perfect NoteBook for you

    It's been at least 30 years since I've used an actual typewriter but I still know how to type without looking at the keys because I didn't go to an exclusive private that couldn't afford technology more advanced than a quill pen.

    Looks decidedly "Uncool" to me -- Honestly guys while the hardware and technology has moved on we were looking at these sorts of "Outfits" in the early 1960's.

    Reminds me of people walking around "Tethered with an Earpiece to their Phone". To me that just says "Wage Slave -- I'm beholden to somebody else who thinks I am available for their requests at any time".

    In any case I don't trust Google that much -- it would be EASY to build in subliminal advertising into that type of device or even political ideas.

    Walking around tethered to electronic gizmos is definitely NOT COOL. Also I hope when you cross the road that YOU are responsible for the accident not the poor driver who can't brake instantly when you step out 1 metre in front of him totally locked up in some Virtual reality devoid of what's actually happening on the ground.

    Cheers

    Jimbo, this not something you and I will use, especially with my eyes problem, but the iGizmo lovers will jump on it for sure. iGizmo, I like this one lol. I don't use those Bluetooth eye piece too, when I go in vacation I leave my phone in the hotel room safe, I check my message once a day only, nothing can not wait few hours when I am in vacation.
