Ron, since you're an orgmode user on emacs, you might be interested in this. Of great interest is the mobileorg-android app, which seems to have more features and open source. I'm going to be checking mobileorg out.

Have you tried/used mobileorg?

I tried it a few years ago, but it was arcane and I could not get it to work very well. Where I am now, there is no way that I could sync the two up

Video recordings of all of J.S. Bach's works: "In September 2013 we started performing and recording all of Bach’s works. The first recordings were made available on this site on 2 May 2014, followed by a new Bach recording every Friday. Each piece of music by Bach has its own page where site visitors can choose: the recording, interviews, background information or audience reactions. You can watch and listen to every single piece in its entirety. Musicians will talk about what the music does for them. Background information is provided for each work and all the facts about the recording are compactly summarised. The public section of the site has space for reactions from listeners." Unbelievably cool!

From the article:

Society, it turns out, doesn’t care what you do for a living. It cares more about how well you do what you do.
It's easy to imagine these quips coming out of the mouth of an anthropomorphized panda bear or kindly puffer fish in a Disney movie. And this is a problem. These similarities, once pointed out, emphasize an important and distressing reality: The ubiquitous suggestion that you must find your ...

Not only is the price attractive, but I agree that higher resolution and larger screen are powerful features against Google Glass.
