As far as I know Google still hasn't announced a ship date.
But they're supposed to be holding a dev con for glass next week.

Oh so one of tests for audiometry (they do these tests as one of the tests to guage the level of deafness IIRC) now becomes a patent technology. What crap really. In any case ... this gives me a headache even thinking about it ...
