Yeah I used it for quite some time. Was shocked when they said no one uses the feature and were removing it.

+Allen Firstenberg​ actually Drive is way more conventional than evernote for the type of collection I do.

PREACH ... looks like it's time for a #sermon

i was going to say +Jason Lukaszewski have a chat with +Allen Firstenberg about possibly using Vodo, that's still the most useful glassware i ever used !

allen ... is that still available, when i switched email account i didn't change it at vodo so currently i can't test to see if it is ?

jason it sounds like we use glass in very similar fashion, your struggle is my struggle ... and this is why i've held off developing a final system until the wearables hardware landscape is a more clearly defined.

i DO believe glass was IS a huge success ... the knowledge gained is incredible, of course the iterative process now has to go to work, and we lose traction as an older path is abandoned in favor of plowing a better roads for tomorrow.

i do NOT believe that path is andriod wear on a watch ... at least for me it IS a head worn device, i need my hands to work (just like you do jason) so hands free is a must, voice is a must, and other i/o occurring at face level (h/t: +Noble for the "face" reference) are a must.

so, the business person in me says yes to shuttering nextgen, it is a physical product that takes it's design from another physical product that is either changing or going away ... but that does not mean take all that energy, experience, and awareness and walk away ?

i think it means stop, stand, and stare !!!

very carefully ... where we've been as explorers, WHO the technology worked for, WHY it worked for them, HOW they used it, and most importantly no one seems to want to do this any more ... we need to go ASK them exactly these two questions, the successful use cases will tell us the answers to ALL these questions :

1. HOW do you use glass ?
2. WHY do you glass ?

whether it's for just looking cool in front of others, in a social manner, or solving real world problems, they will tell us what we need to know !!!

products & services built for those market segments WILL succeed, the writing is on the wall, even if devices are no longer on most people's heads ...

i'm an explorer, i'm ALL IN on using wearables in my industry ... and i still don't even know the final hardware product i am committing to yet !!!

but i know one thing, when it gets here i'll be using it, corporate structure will be in place, ready to adopt as a beta-testers the next version of glass, first generically then development of a system that yields the holy grail of what i've always dreamed of ...

automated field data collection, management, & reporting !!!

be an #explorer  ;)

now that makes complete sense, i don't have a history going back that far, but that would do it for me !

i have a lot of hopes riding on sheets, and wearables ... working on integrating sheets data into presentation quality reports using appscript, reminds me of crystal reports days, still a chore for me ... thank you very much allen.

As long as Google does not shutoff its servers so that I can continue to post pictures from my Glass timeline to Twitter & FB I'm ok with this.

Try saying "Google Glass" 5 times in a row.  Yikes.  But I think Aura is actually just a bit harder.  After 5 or 10 times in a row you end up making monkey noises.  Google really stinks at picking names and obviously needs our help.  What's a great name for the next consumer version?  Ideas?

We know the end is near.  Today I called my Glass Guide for a non-foil issue (WiFi module failing).  They told me I'm out of warranty and out of luck.  No replacement, no repair, end of story.  I sent them pictures showing the WiFi working at 5 feet but dying at 10 feet.  Eventually all Glass units will fail - battery if nothing else.  

Note that Foil Bubble, being a defect in manufacturing, may be still covered.

Hey Bob,

Thanks for the serial number.  Doing a bit of digging shows that the warranty for your Glass expired back in March of 2015.  Much as I hate to say it, at this point there isn't anything else I can do for you.  I would make more suggestions, but as I already commented you are too good of a troubleshooter and have done all of the troubleshooting steps already.  I am sorry my friend, I wish there was more I could do for you.

Best regards,

+Al Stan Totally agree.  I got in on the "explorer" program but Glass was eventually offered on the Play store for general purchase by the average consumer.  Failing to provide an after warranty repair service is inexcusable for a multi-billion dollar company like Google.  I'm not planning to buy any more Google hardware.

Hehe... funny.  :)

On a serious note, I wonder if one of our Developers or smart Explorers might think of starting a company, buying a couple thousand enterprise units, hire us all for $1/year and then sell Enterprise units to his employees?  One way around the lack of a consumer model.  I might take that job...

After spending at least 5 hours investigating both SidePack and GazerG add-on batteries for Google Glass, my findings are as follows:

1. Not one single person in this group actually has/had either of these devices and is willing to share their experience here.

2. Since the two devices are not Google-authorized, the chance, however remote, that they may damage my Glass is a dealbreaker.

3. No add-on battery for me.

Yeah I was thinking about doing the same thing but might just look for the google glass frames and put my prescriptions lens in it

+Google Glass... Three Years On

So, it's been three years since I've gotten to touch and play with Google Glass.  Like many others have said, it's been a crazy ride.  Whenever I wear it, I get shock and awe from almost everyone.  In these three years, I've only had one bad experience.

I've met and interacted with many people because of this device, both digitally and IRL.

While I haven't worn it a lot the last couple of months (mostly because the Moto360 handles notifications far better and I'm at a computer the rest of the day), it's still the best device for recording moments while actually being in the moment.

There are too many people to mention, and I don't want to forget anyone, so I won't mention anyone.  ;-)

On my way to the +Project Glass Foundry at +Google New York to meet up with other +Google Developers as well as +Sarah Price . This should prove rather interesting.

Well Days after telling the Glass Team how much I rely on the evernote system for note taking during customer inspections to the point where it is synced to a network folder at my work they flip the switch and turn it off.

Apparently I'm logged in the evernote app works takes my notes gives me the check mark that it took the note, but my notes from my Glass device only will no longer sync.

I hate to say it but this long dedicated explorer may have just given up. Glass now has very little use to me except Pictures and Video but the hardware is so behind I never use it for that anymore.

I also now have to dig through 8 days of work and inspect the cars again to make sure everything is is right.

I will probley end up closing Nextgenlens at this point the remaining orders will ship and I believe the Curtain has Closed.

It's has been fun guys.

OK, so Google Glass is shutting down social, does that mean we will be left with expensive paperweights soon as their servers shut down too? I would add +Google Glass but is that still alive too?

+Keith I Myers you would be surprised how many things bounce off a server. They could make a build that isn't so dependant, but that would mean a new build. Hopefully the recent hiccup was just them moving to a different server.

Thanks to everyone that followed along at +Google Glass Fans over the years and then stayed with me as I kept writing about Glass over at +9to5Google. It was a great ride, but it's not over yet! Project Aura here we come...
 
Well that’s that. The Google Glass social media accounts—including Twitter, Google+, Instagram, and others—have finally been shut down after many months of continued #throughGlass postings and “Happy [insert holiday]!” images. This doesn’t come as much…
