Well, having to send back for this issue again.  Why not enclose the foil in the plastic at the end, so it won't crinkle?  Do we know why it does?  last year, when I had this issue, I thought it was because of the temp change, when you go from outdoor to indoor and there's condensation.  But this year, I've kept it away from any situation like that.

There's so much we don't know, +Mario E Hdez​, and even more that Glass aren't saying. The glass team are the best in customer services I've ever dealt with, always there and always helpful, but seemingly absent when it comes to information about the foiling.

Heat and humidity must play a part, but not the only part. Why doesn't it happen when you're in your kitchen cooking and using the kitchme app? Heat and high humidity.

Why isn't it happening on a mass scale?

There are so many possibilities that people overlook because the collective wisdom is heat and humidity, but everyday there are explorers experiencing changes in both that are not affected. I've only had the foiling once and neither heat or humidity were in any extreme. It was a typical English day, a day I've worn glass many times before and after with no issues.

I've worn glass a matter of a few feet from the melting of metals and the forming of cast iron bars that are over 1000 degrees C, Photos somewhere on my G+, now that's extreme heat, and no foiling. I've gone from inside the foundry to outside in the snow and rain without issue.

"We" need to start looking beyond heat and humidity.

Start examining other things. Oil from your finger/thumb adjusting the prism for example.

Forgot to share this to the community. What battery pack do you use and how many mah?
Hunter Stephenson originally shared:
 
Good thing I carry around a 13,000mah battery pack in my bag. Stuck at the ER with Glass and it was already down to 61% after only a limited amount of use.

A microfiber cloth with a drop of warm water in it should get the prism clean.

Glass Frame newbie.

Just found out I need glasses. What do I need do to get a pair of Glass frames fitted with my prescription?

If that's the set I saw at CES2015 they are about 3 years behind Glass.  Don't waste your money.

#NotOnTheirRadar Networking event last night. I wore my #googleglass expecting snide remarks but got exactly the opposite. I got 2 "that's so cool", a few "I've never seen them before" and a bunch of "would it be possible...".

What I did not get was one single person who even knew that the Explorer Program was phased out. And I mentioned it alot because I feel it's important, especially to the Angels present, to explain the focus on enterprise and education. Mention health care and everyone accepts that as a no brainer for Glass. We, my friends, are the only ones who thought it big news. Nobody else even cares. Glass is not on their radar and that is a good thing.

That's NH Governor Maggie Hassan talking up innovation at my co-working space Alphaloft.

I would agree that no one really knows that it was phased out because the media said it was dead and a failure.  So, more often than not, I get the, "You know they killed the program!"  Of course, now I have to stop and explain what actually happened.  ;-)

Does anybody else find it interesting that the new pebble Kickstarter is referencing a timeline interface?

Well... looks like the next version of Glass may be real after all.  We were all a bit burned by the way our version of Glass was abandoned in a half baked state.  What would it take to get you into the next version of Glass?

I asked Glass on twitter about old explorers being able to get a discount. They said it was a possibility and they were hearing a lot of the same feedback. Also, they said when the new version of glass comes, we'll know "soon". Whatever that means.

Must be certain folks. I've had Glass since Nov. 2013 and was pretty active in the forums. Nothing received here. Not even the e-mail about VOL 001...

Kinda sucks since I've let over a thousand folks from 5-95 try Glass... Feel like a free sales rep by now, no hard feelings tho. It was (and still is) exciting.

Wondering about the +Google Glass​ Vol 001 Book? Here's the official word on it!

If you got one, be sure to say thanks! If you didn't, they are giving out a link to the digital copy. It's awesome, go look at it!

Hey everyone, we're sending physical copies of Glass Vol 001 to a small group of Explorers as a special thank you. If you're getting Vol 001 you should have received an email confirming the shipping information. If not, we also have a digital version that you can download here: https://support.google.com/glass/answer/6131280
