    Can Google Glass Solve Privacy Problems With This New Augmented Reality Browser?

    It's no secret that the government is creepily watching you all the time, like that weird dude who was really into you in high school. Many people think Google Glass won't help the matter (cameras on you 24/7?) - but this new augmented reality browser for the Glass might actually solve your privacy problems, instead of exacerbating them.

    Google Literally Tells Glass Explorers Not to Be “Glassholes” in New Guidelines

    Google has a tough job in making Google glass appeal to the masses. People have all kinds of fears about privacy and looking like a dork, because the only person to ever successfully pull off computerized eyewear is LeVar Burton. To help Glass's image, they've sent out a set of guidelines to teach their Explorers not to be "Glassholes."

    Google Glass Valentines Day Proposal Video Is Romantic, Awful

    This week the good folks at Google decided to capitalize on Valentines Day, with a compilation video of Google Glass "explorers" popping the question. The result is manipulative, weird, creepy, sweet, and probably not an effective advertisement. It also answers the question: can you kiss wearing Google's latest technology? (Yes, but awkwardly.)

    Last weekend, a man in Columbus, Ohio went to go see Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit with his wife and, in an ironic twist, ended up being interrogated by the FBI Department of Homeland Security for an hour instead. The reason? He was wearing Google Glass.

    18-Year-Old Uses Google Glass to Combat Autism, Rest of World Feels Inadequate

    Since the first announcement of Google Glass, it's been a goldmine for comedians (and wannabe-comedians) everywhere. But while many of us were busy mocking this latest tech, one teenager conceived of a way to use it to help those suffering from autism -- by creating a program to recognize expressions and emotion.

    Final Price for Google Glass Rumored at Less Than $300

    We're more than a little intrigued with Google Glass, but now that it's out in the wild and we've seen what it really can -- and can't -- do, we've wondered if it's worth the money. Developers paid $1,500 for their early versions, but the final price for the wearable tech could be much less.

    The Run the Jewels show the other night in San Francisco was apparently pretty great -- except one concertgoer found herself distracted by the guy she saw wearing Google Glass. So she decided to let him know with the above Missed Connection post, and the rest of the Internet is better for it.

    Google Glass Porn Now a Thing That Exists, Here is the Obviously NSFW Trailer [Video]

    Android porn app developer MiKandi tried to make a porn app for Google Glass. It didn't take long for Google to change their rules to prevent it, but Google couldn't stop them from hiring porn stars to don the wearable technology and, well, do what porn stars do, and that's exactly what happened. What would a porn shot with Glass look like? The trailer is a good indication without showing any actual porn, though the language is still pretty filthy and there's a lot of moaning, so remember -- NSFW.

    OK Glass, Film This Idiot Getting Arrested: First Arrest Video Filmed With Google Glass

    Chris Barrett, an early adopter of Google Glass, caught some video of an arrest at the Jersey shore on the Fourth of July that he claims is the "first fight & arrest caught on Glass." In the description of the video he states, "This video is proof that Google Glass will change citizen journalism forever." With everyone already carrying around a smartphone, is Glass really that big of a jump?

    Conan Shares Intimate Moment With Google Glass [Video]

    Have you ever wanted to know what the inside of  Conan O'Brien's mouth looks like? Jeremy Hofferman knows firsthand, and thanks to his Google Glass, now so do all of us. Hofferman was waiting for an E3 panel when the talk show host walked by, presumably there to film segments for his show (does this mean we're going to get a Clueless Gamer at E3? Let's hope so!). Conan noticed the Google Glass, jokingly suggested that they make out, and the rest is Internet history. Speaking of which, I wonder how many make outs start out as jokes? Probably at least a fifth of them, I bet.

    Google Glass Puts Kibosh on Porn Apps, Disappoints Perverts Worldwide

    In news that will no doubt come as a blow to many of the Internet's more sex-crazed denizens, developers for Google have 86ed pornographic apps for Google Glass in an update of its policies earlier this week. We can all sleep easier knowing that the guy on the bus is not looking at people's naughty bits, but narcissistically checking his Facebook feed, which is more noble and dignified than watching a skin flick...for reasons that I'm sure I will think of eventually.

    Google Glass Just Got a Little Less Creepy, It Won’t Recognize Faces

    If you're creeped-out by the idea of someone wearing Google Glass being able to instantly pull up information about you just from your face, then you might be glad to hear that isn't happening. At least not yet. Google announced Friday that it would not be accepting apps that make use of facial recognition as a way of addressing privacy concerns. So that's it then, right? Are everyone's concerns settled? It's not that simple, Google.

    New Google Glass App Hopes to Be Being John Malkovich for Porn

    Google Glass has raised some interesting questions of etiquette. When is it rude to wear a camera on your face? What are acceptable uses for the wearable technology in public? One thing I think everyone can agree on is that watching porn in public makes you a creep, but that doesn't mean it won't be an option for Glass users. There's obviously already a porn app for Glass.
