I'd appreciate it if your folks addressed the following persistent issue. Even though I disabled the "use location" setting within the app, it runs the device's GPS radio. That's an unnecessary drain on the phone's resources.
Awesome work, guys!
While this condition never really affected me — other than having a slightly weaker voice than normal which some people think sounded a little funny — it naturally raised questions in my mind about my second vocal cord. But I was told that sequential paralysis of one vocal cord following another is extremely rare.
Fast forward to last summer, when the same pattern repeated itself — a cold followed by a hoarse voice. Once again things didn’t fully improve, so I went in for a check-up and was told that my second vocal cord now had limited movement as well. Again, after a thorough examination, the doctors weren’t able to identify a cause.
Thankfully, after some initial recovery I’m fully able to do all I need to at home and at work, though my voice is softer than before. And giving long monologues is more tedious for me and probably the audience. But overall over the last year there has been some improvement with people telling me they think I sound better. Vocal cord nerve issues can also affect your breathing, so my ability to exercise at peak aerobic capacity is somewhat reduced. That said, my friends still think I have way more stamina than them when we go kitesurfing! And Sergey says I’m probably a better CEO because I choose my words more carefully. So surprisingly, overall I am feeling very lucky.
Interestingly, while the nerves for your vocal cords take quite different routes through your body, they both pass your thyroid. So in searching for a cause for both nerves that was an obvious place to look. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's thyroiditis in 2003. This is a fairly common benign inflammatory condition of the thyroid which causes me no problems. It is unclear if this is a factor in the vocal cord condition, or whether both conditions were triggered by a virus.
In this journey I have learned a lot more about voice issues. Though my condition seems to be very rare, there are a significant number of people who develop issues with one vocal nerve. In seeing different specialists, I met one doctor — Dr. Steven Zeitels from the Harvard Medical School and the Massachusetts General Hospital Voice Center — who is really excited about the potential to improve vocal cord nerve function. So I’ve arranged to fund a significant research program through the Voice Health Institute, which he will lead. Thanks a bunch to my amazing wife Lucy, for her companionship through this journey and for helping oversee this project and get it off the ground. Also, thanks to the many people who have helped with advice and information many of whom I have not had a chance to thank yet.
Finally, we’ve put together a patient survey to gather information about other people with similar conditions. As it’s fairly rare, there’s little data available today — and the team hopes that with more information they can make faster progress.

Prior to having #Glass , I thought the 3-5 hour battery life was going to be a deal-killer, since that'd never cut it for a phone. But the thing you realize once you've had these for a few hours is that you don't wear them all day, and they don't need to be on all day. Unlike a phone, which is your primary communications device, Glass is more like a very useful add-on.
When you're sitting in front of a computer, Glass is basically useless, so you just take it off. When you get up to go somewhere, you put them back on. Unlike a phone, you don't feel naked without them (or when it's not juiced up) - they just help you do some interesting new things when you're not already plugged in.
So a 3-5 hour battery life (this is based on web news, not on personal info - mine didn't run out yesterday) seems like it's going to be a pretty good target, particularly since if you are a heavier user, you can simply plug them in when you're at your desk, just like I do now. (And just like we all used to have to do with our mobile phones when they didn't last the whole day. Remember that?)
For , it sounds like he never wants to take them off, but for me (and, I suspect, most of you), you'll find yourself wearing them for a few hours a day. Time will tell.
(My 5-year-old daughter, btw, absolutely adores them. Best thing since the invention of princesses, I think. She would get very frustrated with the battery life. So maybe I'm full of it? :)
