This thing has been listed as "Coming Soon" for months. I'm almost ready to drink the KoolAid and buy a Dell Venue Pro 11.

I had a blast moderating this CE Week panel on augmented reality. It was my first time moderating a panel. Do you think it went ok?

+Sean Captain wrote a fascinating article positing that the Supreme Court was right to outlaw Aereo. I have to respectfully disagree b/c I see Aereo not as a video streaming service, but as a cloud service that is granting you remote access to a rented antenna. 

I don't know if anyone still uses Slingbox, but isn't that the same thing? You attach the Slingbox to your cable box (or antenna) at home and then remotely access the signal from the Slingbox from anywhere in the world. Aereo is the same thing, only you don't own the hardware and it's not sitting in your house.

Today's smartphones are more like Mr. Glass than Bruce Willis. Tomorrow, that could change. Great story by +Michael Andronico 
Will a mainstream smartphone ever be unbreakable? Thanks to new materials and innovative manufacturers, we're closer than ever before.

If standing next to someone with Google Glass bothers you, if you're turned off by the idea of your children playing with virtual toys rather than real ones or if you're afraid of a world where any stranger on the street can get your profile using facial recognition, I have three words for you: Get over it! Augmented reality is the future, so just put on your headgear and enjoy the ride.

+Don Wilson Thanks for your thoughts. I think it's more accurate to think of augmented reality wearables as memory aids than thinkers. You learn skills and methods of thinking. These just help you find and retrieve the data.

Observations on Google I/O from +Harry McCracken 
If you're looking for a good straightforward recap of the news which Google made during its I/O keynote on Wednesday morning, stop reading this post. Instead, head over to Mat Honan's fine summary ...
