Just a few days ago, we first heard the rumors that Google may be looking into opening a number of retail store locations in major metropolitan areas in time for the holiday season. We first wondered whether Google has even proven it can handle its own stores, but the rumors say Google is recruiting outside help in the process. Now, we're getting more confirmation from the Wall Street Journal that the retail stores are in fact a reality...

You don't believe how hard is to purchase a Nexus 4 if you're outside of the US, the ones being sold in my country are too expensive (almost $500 for the 8GB version).

I would need to use a proxy to shop in the us online store... ¬.¬

It would make it a lot easier to sell google glass to the public. Most non tech people I know aren't even aware of it yet.

I personally think the easiest people to sell this to are hipsters. They'll buy anything to that makes them look smarter and trendy. Plus then could say I wore them before they were cool.
