Awww now I feel special, Google made a "book" for Glass Explorers about the first stages of Glass, now they're progressing towards a full consumer launch later in the year.
Can't wait to see where it goes next!

Here's what the email said:

Hi there,
It’s been an exciting ride. Since we first met, interest in wearables has exploded and today it’s one of the most exciting areas in technology. We asked you to be pioneers, and you took Glass further than we ever expected. We’ve learned a ton, we’ve "graduated" from Google[x] labs, and now we’re hard at work and you’ll see future versions of Glass when they’re ready.
Since we’re focusing all our efforts on the future, we’ll be closing the Explorer Program on January 19. We realize you might have questions about what this means for you. New feature development on the Explorer Edition will stop while we work on the next version of Glass, but you can still call or email us anytime with questions, thoughts or feedback.
In the meantime, we’ve created Glass Vol 001 to honor you, our Explorers. It’s a collection of photos and stories from the early days of Glass.

The Explorer Program was started to get Glass into the hands of early pioneers who would forge the way. You’ve taken Glass to the edges of the world, from the streets of New York to the tundras of Antarctica. You’ve captured miracles every day, from your wedding vows and your child’s first steps to new ways to save lives. You’ve humbled us by taking what we started and doing more than we ever could have dreamed. Let’s celebrate your bold and brave steps into an uncharted world.
Thank you for being part of the story. We’ll see you in the next chapter.
The Glass Team

Doesn't sound like it's going anywhere to me yeah? :D

Talking with a workmate about why I was smoking an e-cig yesterday. Now, we've got to know each other pretty well over the last couple years, and it came up that I don't smoke at all, so why an e-cigarette?
I told him:
"It's mostly for the flavor, the taste, I guess?"
And he says:
"Nah, I think it's coz it's technology that you can play with"
"Eh, it's possibly also just for something to do, keep my hands busy or whatever"
"Nah, I'm pretty sure it's just coz it's technology"

He's probably right :D

Anyways, got in to the office and there's a few more flavors to try out that I ordered online yesterday. Overnight delivery, hell yeah!

My workmate stopped by using these, with Nicotine. Start off with something local, you can pick up one like mine for ~$60, and some ejuice. From there if you like it, see if its worth throwing a little more $$ at, but depending how much you smoke your new habit can probably "pay for itself" in under a week

It would however do a fair bit towards improving social housing, or a year or so of school breakfasts or something. Rather than something that doesn't need to be done at all.  Might as well just burn the money.

Some real freakin' morons replying to Sue Bradford posting this for sure...
The article itself highlights just how stupid some of our politicians are too:
"This is a huge infringement on human rights by having the state determine which category you fall into, and therefore which services you should have access to."
Ummm how about it's not a Human Right to have yourself provided for by your Government.

The Government wants to make sure it's not giving out money for free, and is being proactive in trying to prevent lifelong beneficiaries, so remind me again how this is a negative thing? :-/
I swear the Greens are pretty much the worst of the lot!

It amazes me sometimes.  I deal with Arche  from Auckland and if I order something before 4:30 ( one time it was more like 5:30) it is often on my doorstep (Masterton) at 7.30 next morning and yet something from Wellington can take two days.
I knew someone that worked for the railways and they ordered something from the UK and he had it within forty eight hours.

By the way are you showing your age there. :))

Next match in 4 hours 20, I'm not convinced I'll be awake for that... May have to start going to bed earlier for the 4AM starts :-/
Got next week off for the finals though! :D

Divine food and fantastic service! Touring through as an english-only speaker, the service was great, the menu had a fantastic spread, and pretty good value too. The good though, quite possibly some of the best we've had on our travels thus far!

The staff there are brilliant, fast and incredibly friendly service. We've been there a number of times over the last 6 months and every single time they exceed our expectations and provide delicious food with a smile! Can't recommend them enough!
