Seeing the world through Google Glass

January 25, 2013

 

Tech junkies have been long anticipating the release of Google Glass.  According to tech buzz, this project is the next breakthrough in gadgetry.

Technology buffs aren't the only ones getting excited.  Advertisers see an enormous opportunity with this Google Glass. Google execs have stated that they will not allow ads on the product, but ad giants know that this could open a whole new avenue for brand interaction.

Imagine special offers popping up before your eyes as you walk past Pitaya, Walkers or Transment thanks to Google Glass.  It'll be hard to pass up a 50% deal if you're passing by anyway. It's an advertiser's dream to know where we are and what we're looking for as we trot around town.

What do you think of Google Glass?

Do you think advertising through Google Glass would be effective?

Could it really be a game-changer for technology?  Like the iPhone?

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
