Ok so, I got my name in the lottery for Google IO. It's no early invite but it's exciting.

I know it doesn't technically matter, but I'm planning on signing up for Google IO lottery ASAP tomorrow. Here's to hoping I can reunite with other GDG organizers and meet lots of others!

Oh boy! It's here finally
 
#GlassUpdates are back with Kit Kat for Glass, photo bundles & more  

You’ve been asking us when the next round of updates were coming. Well, they’re coming later this week! We know it’s been a little while, but this is a big one and we think it’s well worth the wait. Here’s what you’ll find in the new release:

Kit Kat for Glass – Our most exciting update is subtle, but big. We’ve been working on a significant upgrade to a new version of the Glass software. It’s not a change you can see, but it brings improved battery life and makes Glass more reliable and easier to update in the future. And now that Glass runs Android Kit Kat, developers can write Glassware using the latest Android SDK goodness, along with new features from our GDK.

Photo bundles – This one has been a long-standing request from our Explorers: now when you scroll through your timeline, your photos, videos and vignettes from each day will be organized in bundles so that you can swipe less and see more.

Photo replies in Hangouts – Photo sharing has been really popular amongst our Explorers, so we’ve added new ways to send photos in Hangout messages. The next time someone asks “what’s up,” tap “Reply” and then take a photo to show them. (If you already took the perfect photo, you can still tap to “Send” it in a Hangout message.)

Sending feedback – We always want to hear feedback from you on ways we can make Glass better so we’re making it even easier. Tap on the device info card in Settings and tell us what’s on your mind. If you need help, you can still send us an email, call us, or post in the Explorers Community.

Voice command sorting – With new features and Glassware, your voice command menu has grown pretty long. When you tap or say “ok glass,” voice commands are now sorted by recency and frequency, making it easier to see the commands you use most often and faster to access them from the touch menu. 

Video calls – We hold ourselves to high standards for the features that we build, and video calls aren’t living up to these standards. Explorers have told us so directly, and fewer than 10% of them use video calls. For this reason, we’ve made the hard decision to remove video calls from Glass until the experience is better. We don’t know when that will be, but in the meantime, keep an eye on MyGlass as more Glassware is built and released – we’re already seeing the developer community work on other video streaming services. We’ve always said that feedback from Explorers shapes Glass, and this is no exception.

…and more – This is a massive update and we couldn’t fit all the changes into this post, so watch the Glass Journal in the Explorers Community to see the rest.

My email to Google, earlier today, after learning that the new update removes the video call feature from Glass:

The removal of video feature is really a deadly blow for Glass in Medicine!
The use in Med Ed, Telemedicine, Tele-mentoring, Tele-consulting is Now NOT possible!
I only hope that this is restored in the next update.
There's a very active, important, growing professional community that has been working around Glass in Healthcare, who depends on this particular characteristic of Glass.
Please reconsider the decision of taking video away, or at least allow some user subgroups to choose whether to update.
Folks like me and several others, from Maine and Boston to San Francisco must have the video option to be able to make Glass an important tool in Healthcare and Medical Education.
Please.

Respectfully.

Today only, anyone can join the Glass Explorer program.
 
Today’s the day to become a Glass Explorer

We let the cat out of the bag, you marked your calendars, and the time has finally arrived. If you're a US resident who is 18+, you can purchase Glass and join the Explorer Program at glass.google.com/getglass

The Explorer bundle costs $1500+tax and includes your favorite shade or frame, a charger, pouch, hard case and mono earbud. As an Explorer, your feedback will help to shape how Glass evolves over time. 

We’ve got a limited number of spots available, so don’t wait too long – we can't wait to meet you and hear about your first adventures with Glass.

Should be, they ship in 5-7 days and I imagine they don't send them book rate.

Absolutely the best pizza and strombolis. It's all about the dough. They like to experiment with toppings too.

Their food has gotten much better in the last year or two. It's always been a great place to get a drink, now with great food too. There's lot of different styles to choose from.
