We’ve got some big news to share as we announce today that we have agreed to join forces with Luxottica. The Luxottica Group is a leader in premium, luxury and sports eyewear with over 5,000 optical and sun retail stores in the US and has a strong, well-balanced brand portfolio that includes Ray-Ban, Oakley, Vogue-Eyewear, Persol, Oliver Peoples, Alain Mikli and Arnette.

When the first eyeglasses appeared in the 13th century, they took off and over the next 700 years, they evolved over and over, with the first bifocals appearing in the 18th century, and the monocle and sunglasses shortly after. Nowadays, glasses are global phenomenon – a reflection of both function and fashion. 

We see Glass as the next chapter in this long story. Light, simple and modular, Glass introduces new functionality as your glasses get smarter – but bringing your own style to Glass is just as important. Earlier this year, we launched the Titanium Collection, designed by the Glass team. Between frames, shades, and colors, there are over 40 different ways for Explorers to make Glass their own today… but that’s not enough.

Luxottica understands how to build, distribute and sell great products that their clients and consumers love – something we care deeply about at Glass, too. They’ll bring design and manufacturing expertise to the mix, and, together, we’ll bring even more Glass style choices to our Explorers. In addition, Luxottica’s retail and wholesale distribution channels will serve us well when we make Glass available to more people down the road.

You’re not going to see Glass on your favorite Oakleys or Ray-Bans tomorrow, but today marks the start of a new chapter in Glass’s design. Excited? Because we definitely are.

An interesting theory.
MH370  A different point of view. Pulau Langkawi 13,000 runway.

A lot of speculation about MH370. Terrorism, hijack, meteors. I cannot believe the analysis on CNN - almost disturbing. I tend to look for a more simple explanation of this event.
Loaded 777 departs midnight from Kuala to Beijing. Hot night. Heavy aircraft.  About an hour out across the gulf towards Vietnam the plane goes dark meaning the transponder goes off and secondary radar tracking goes off. 
Two days later we hear of reports that Malaysian military radar (which is a primary radar meaning the plane is being tracked by reflection rather than by transponder interrogation response) has tracked the plane on a southwesterly course back across the Malay Peninsula into the straits of Malacca.
When I heard this I immediately brought up Google Earth and I searched for airports in proximity to the track towards southwest.
The left turn is the key here. This was a very experienced senior Captain with 18,000 hours. Maybe some of the younger pilots interviewed on CNN didn't pick up on this left turn. We old pilots were always drilled to always know the closest airport of safe harbor while in cruise. Airports behind us, airports abeam us and airports ahead of us. Always in our head. Always. Because if something happens you don't want to be thinking what are you going to do - you already know what you are going to do. Instinctively when I saw that left turn with a direct heading I knew he was heading for an airport. Actually he was taking a direct route to Palau Langkawi a 13,000 foot strip with an approach over water at night with no obstacles. He did not turn back to Kuala  Lampur because he knew he had 8,000 foot ridges to cross. He knew the terrain was friendlier towards Langkawi and also a shorter distance.
Take a look on Google Earth at this airport. This pilot did all the right things. He was confronted by some major event onboard that made him make that immediate turn back to the closest safe airport.
For me the loss of transponders and communications makes perfect sense if a fire. There was most likely a fire or electrical fire. In the case of fire the first response if to pull all the main busses and restore circuits one by one until you have isolated the bad one.

If they pulled the busses the plane indeed would go silent. It was probably a serious event and they simply were occupied with controlling the plane and trying to fight the fire. Aviate, Navigate and lastly communicate. There are two types of fires. Electrical might not be as fast and furious and there might or might not be incapacitating smoke. However there is the possibility given the timeline that perhaps there was an overheat on one of the front landing gear tires and it blew on takeoff and started slowly burning. Yes this happens with underinflated tires. Remember heavy plane, hot night, sea level, long run takeoff. There was a well known accident in Nigeria of a DC8 that had a landing gear fire on takeoff. A tire fire once going would produce horrific incapacitating smoke. Yes, pilots have access to oxygen masks but this is a no no with fire. Most have access to a smoke hood with a filter but this will only last for a few minutes depending on the smoke level. (I used to carry one of my own in a flight bag and I still carry one in my briefcase today when I fly).
What I think happened is that they were overcome by smoke and the plane just continued on  the heading probably on George (autopilot) until either fuel exhaustion or fire destroyed the control surfaces and it crashed. I said four days ago you will find it along that route - looking elsewhere was pointless.  
This pilot, as I say, was a hero struggling with an impossible situation trying to get that plane to Langkawi. No doubt in my mind. That's the reason for the turn and direct route. A hijack would not have made that deliberate left turn with a direct heading for Langkawi. It would probably have weaved around a bit until the hijackers decided on where they were taking it.
Surprisingly none of the reporters , officials, other pilots interviewed have looked at this from the pilot's viewpoint. If something went wrong where would he go? Thanks to Google earth I spotted Langkawi in about 30 seconds, zoomed in and saw how long the runway was and I just instinctively knew this pilot knew this airport. He had probably flown there many times. I guess we will eventually find out when you help me spread this theory on the net and some reporters finally take a look on Google earth and put 2 and 2 together. Also a look at the age and number of cycles on those nose tires might give us a good clue too.   
Fire in an aircraft demands one thing - you get the machine on the ground as soon as possible. There are two well remembered experiences in my memory. The AirCanada DC9 which landed I believe in Columbus Ohio in the eighties. That pilot delayed descent and bypassed several airports.   He didn't instinctively know the closest airports. He got it on the ground eventually but lost 30 odd souls.   In the 1998 crash of Swissair DC-10 off Nova Scotia was another example of heroic pilots. They were 15 minutes out of Halifax but the fire simply  overcame them and they had to ditch in the ocean. Just ran out of time. That fire incidentally started when the aircraft was about an hour out of Kennedy. Guess what the transponders and communications were shut off as they pulled the busses.

Get on Google Earth and type in Pulau Langkawi  and then look at it in relation to the radar track heading. 2+2=4  That for me is the  simple explanation why it turned and headed  in that direction.

Smart pilot. Just didn't have the time.

Connaissant la cuisine thaï de Thaïlande (la vraie !), je suis tombé avec des amis par hasard sur ce restaurant, j'étais donc curieux de savoir ce qu'il valait. Avant de pouvoir me faire un avis sur l'aspect culinaire, nous avons tout d'abord dû passer par le douloureux et triste aspect du service. Accueillis par des serveurs d'origine asiatique dont l'aisance en français est très médiocre, nous avons décidé de commander uniquement des plats principaux. Pour nous faire patienter, nous avons eu droit à des krupuk (chips à base de crevettes), hélas ils étaient vieux, mous, bref vraiment mauvais. Cela aurait dû nous mettre la puce à l'oreille sur la suite de l'aventure. Puis nous avons attendu. Attendu. Attendu, encore et encore. Au bout de 45 minutes à attendre nos plats et sans qu'aucun des serveurs ne vienne nous tenir au courant de l'avancement en cuisine, nous nous sommes quand même demandés ce qu'il se passait. Là, on nous a dit qu'ils étaient vraiment débordés (Ah bon ? Toutes les tables n'étaient pourtant pas occupées !) mais que cela allait arriver dans les 15 minutes. Bien. 15 minutes plus tard, toujours rien. On nous annonce 15 minutes de plus. Au bout d'une heure à attendre, j'estime que l'on a assez donné de sa personne. À deux doigts de partir, nous faisons quand même l'effort de rester en espérant avoir malgré un service déplorable, un repas convenable. Une heure et demie après avoir commandé nos plats (incroyable !), nous sommes enfin servis. Et là, c'est la cerise sur le gâteau. Les plats sont très mal présentés (ce n'est pas le plus important mais ça joue) et pire, ils ne sont pas particulièrement bons, peu voire pas épicés du tout (leur piment aide à peine) et les portions ne sont pas très grandes contrairement à ce que la serveuse nous avait dit. Et ça pour une douzaine d'euros minimum par plat… Bref, même si je ne m'attendais à rien en particulier, difficile de ne pas être énormément déçu par ce restaurant. Au moment de quitter les lieux de cette mauvaise expérience, tout le staff (quatre personnes) a décidé, chacun à son tour, de venir nous parler et nous poser les mêmes questions (bizarre quand pendant plus d'une heure et demie, nous n'avons pas eu plus de trois échanges). Très énervant. Et bonjour la communication dans le staff. Dans pareille situation — une heure et demie d'attente et des plats moyens —, j'espérais toutefois un semblant de geste commercial. Eh bien non. J'ai pu me mettre le doigt dans l'oeil, bien profond. Bref, la totale. En résumé, un service catastrophique et des plats vraiment moyens qui ne valent pas leurs prix.

Restaurant gastronomique dans une belle bâtisse située dans une petite rue un peu à l'écart et très tranquille. Il existe une formule Entrée + Plat + Dessert pour 16 euros. Plats très bien présentés, délicieux et pas chers ! En plus, le chef et le staff sont très sympathiques. À essayer sans hésiter !
