Google appoints Ivy Ross new head of Google Glass
Earlier this week, Google started offering Google Glass in open beta. Anyone with $1500 can now buy the wearable device. And along with this change comes another major one for the connected specs. Google has named Ivy Ross as the new chief of Google Glass. Ross left a message on the Google+ site for Glass, talking about her past positions at companies like Calvin Klein, Swatch, Coach, Mattel, Bausch & Lomb, Gap and Art.com.

At those firms., Ross said that she worked "at the intersection of design and marketing." Calling Glass "cool," she admitted to just getting started on the device. According to the post, which you can read in its entirety below, she will begin her career at Google starting on Monday.

Considering that Ross' strengths seem to be in design and marketing, it would seem that the first phase of Google Glass is now over with the next phase to focus on selling the device to the public.
