First software update for Google Glass
The update will now allow a long press from anywhere inside the UI to call up search functions and transcriptions of queries and messages is now (these are Google's words) 'wicked fast'. You can start the update only once the device is plugged into the charger, which needs to be plugged into the wall at the time. The update is not a short one, so while you let Google Glass do its thing, you might want to recapture some of that lost magic you used to have by reconnecting with your smartphone.

glass is perhaps the most useless gadget of 2013, it think even smart watches are better...Your paying $1500 just for google+,maps and such things which can be done on a phone...glass could have had sales if it retailed for about $500 not more than that! and over the past few months google has been launching some useless things at high prices like the nexus Q,Chromebook pixel and this!

You're paying $1500 for the developer version of Glass.
Google has already said it will retail for less.
Nexus Q was never launched, those who "pre-ordered" got their refund and the Nexus Q.

Not sure if trolling or just retarded LOL, this is not the final product only for devs so of course it's expensive, the consumer version will retail for about $300-$400 i suppose
