Google Glass available for anyone to buy today only; limited quantities available says Google
Today only, you can join the group of Google Glass Explorers by purchasing the connected specs for $1500 from Google. The wearable device comes with a charger and a cable, mono earbud, a pouch and your choice of  shades, or a frame. The latter is normally $225, and the former is usually $150. But for today, both are free with your purchase.

While Glass still has managed to retain most of the cool that helped the device grab everyone's attention when it first came on to the scene, a recent survey found that only 28% of Americans surveyed would be interested in buying the wearable. The 72% who replied in the negative when asked if they would buy Google Glass, cited concerns about privacy and safety as the reasons not to buy the connected specs.

We don't know when Google will again offer Glass to everyone, and you need to keep in mind that there is a limited number of specs available to be purchased today. Whoever buys Google Glass today will have their device updated to Android 4.4 later this week. The update improves battery life, something that is always appreciated. It also adds a new photo sharing feature that lets you share your photos using an Instagram style grid, and an updated SDK for developers. Android 4.4 also removes video calls on Google Glass. Less than 10% of Glass users were using the device to make video calls.
