Some say that Elop was found at the construction site, trying to make it a burning platform.

Too bad. They looked cool. They would have made great Google stores or whatever.

I assume they were cancelled due to regulatory problems, such as zoning or building codes.

So there is no info at all on what it was supposed to be or do? What was the plan?

Ah, so much for Google's floating porn palaces for the Glass generation.

I am glad Elop has finally found a mission in life that I can support, burning down the Google Glass platform.
