Google Glass gets first update in nearly three years
To make it as clear as can be, let's look at the changelist for the update. It reads simply, "Glass can now be paired with Bluetooth input devices, including keyboards." With a QWERTY keyboard, Glass wearers just might find themselves improving their productivity while using the device. By the way, this is the first update to Google Glass since September 2014.
The day that Google Glass was introduced to the world, the future looked bright for the product. But as time went on, the price of $1,500 proved to be much too high. In addition, buyers had a whole convoluted process to sit through when it came to picking out the look of the wearable and actually having it fitted. And those who did buy a pair were accused of taking photos and spying on people at restaurants and bars. Even worse, they were banned from several theaters that thought Glass wearers might record first run films from their theater seats. Overall, Google Glass wearers were labeled as douches and that stigma outweighed the features offered by the product.
Someday, Google might try again in making Google Glass a consumer product, but for now it remains a tool for the enterprise.
