Cross your fingers & let's hope Aereo comes out in top. "It's disruptive" seems to be the main argument. I'd say that's a good thing.

In case you missed it...you've got a few more hours! They are out of "cotton" already, though...
 
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, a case and a 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.

This is probably the best description of what you, the average user needs to do about Heartbleed. If you want the background, read this article by Bruce Schneier: http://2.t-dub.net/1n4Yiup.

Interesting; I'll check it out. A big part of what I'm basing my assertions on is coming from the ongoing analysis that is coming out of a working group I'm part of at Rotary. We're running through all of the ways that we were vulnerable based on the combination of systems which "spoke" with a vulnerable system via the public Internet using a TLS/SSL-protected HTTP session.  I think the point, though is that not every site is automatically vulnerable and it's very specific to individual platforms and applications.

However, many of the most important institutions (e.g., banks) have historically done a poor job of being transparent about security problems and so it seems a bit naive to assume that they would give us the whole story in this case.

This is a brilliant use of otherwise wasted heat, but it's also a highly practical tool for those who love off or half off the grid. I backed it today, all you wood stove owners out there should too!
 
This is a very clever and useful Kickstarter project by Tegpro out of Randolph, VT.

+James Grimes, did you see this? It strikes me as the kind of clever solution you would appreciate.

KitKat for +Google Glass. w00t!
 
Here are the release notes for XE16 platform updates.

Oh, and it's not mentioned there, but Bluetooth low energy support (a.k.a. Bluetooth Smart or Bluetooth 4.0) works as of XE16 too :)

For everyone who's been eagerly waiting to join us Explorers in The Future, now is your chance!
 
Become a Glass Explorer on Tues April 15

Whoops. So... we’d planned to post this next week, but it looks like the cat's out of the bag now. Over the past several months, we’ve been trying out different ways to expand the Explorer program. Some of you signed up at Google I/O, some told us what you would do #ifihadglass , some were referred by a friend, some joined through their school or university. Our Explorers are moms, bakers, surgeons, rockers, and each new Explorer has brought a new perspective that is making Glass better. But every day we get requests from those of you who haven’t found a way into the program yet, and we want your feedback too. So in typical Explorer Program fashion, we’re trying something new. 

Next Tuesday, April 15th at 6am PDT, we’re opening up some spots in the Glass Explorer Program. Any adult in the US* can become an Explorer by visiting our site and purchasing Glass for $1500 + tax – and it now comes with your favorite shade or frame, thanks to feedback from our current Explorers. The number of spots available is limited, so mark your calendar if you want to get in. You can find us on Tuesday at: http://google.com/glass/start/how-to-get-one

We’re excited to meet our new Explorers, and we can’t wait to hear your thoughts about Glass.

*To everyone outside the US... we know. Sorry :( We’re just not ready yet to bring Glass to other countries.

I'm a web applications developer who has been working on some variation of a LAMP stack since the early web. I currently lead the Web Development Team at Rotary International. I am a Glass Explorer and an early adopter, but I love the classics (like bash and vi).
Bragging rights
I wrote a social network web application in the year 2000 and never opened it to anyone other than my friends. I achieved gold badge status in Google Reader (yes, it was a real thing, complete with physical badge) before it was shut down. Yes, I live in the past.

I'm a big fan of this local, "classic" drugstore. Unlike Walgreens or CVS, everyone here is very knowledgeable and friendly. They stock over-the-counter stuff, various medical devices, and a variety of prescription meds. In other words, they have exactly what you'd expect a drugstore to have :) If you have a prescription you'd like to transfer over, call them in advance and they'll make sure that they've got it in stock for the first time you show up with that prescription. That's real service! Don't expect food items or anything else here: it's not a convenience store that happens to have a pharmacy like the chains have become.

As others have said, this is a this is a fantastic classic barber shop. You can get a straight razor shave, a haircut, and soon, you'll get a shampoo (but barber-style; this is NOT a salon). You're also likely to get a good conversation with your barber and one or two of the folks from the neighborhood who often occupy some of the chairs (say hi to Bill, he seems to be hanging out here almost all the time and knows the history of the neighborhood extremely well). A local business employees who truly care about their craft. How can you go wrong?
