Google to let friends of Glass users join Explorer program temporarily
pay the same $1500 that the 8000 winners of the #ifihadglass contest had to pay for their pair of Google Glass. One person who received the email from Google to invite a friend into the program, said that the online form requests your pal's name and Gmail address, and a few words why you feel that this person would be a great addition to the Google Glass Explorer team.
Now we are going to let you in on a little secret. If you love all the new attention that your friends have thrown your way, don't bother telling them that no more emails are going out and the 'invite a friend' experiment is now over and Google is no longer looking for new members to join the Explorer program. That means that your friends will have to wait for the retail launch of Google Glass, or for the reopening of the "invite a friend" program. As for you, if you keep your mouth shut you can still wrangle some favors from your unsuspecting pals.
