Nope, Google Glass isn’t dead—just “resting” not pulling adult a daisies, nor regulating down a screen to join a choir invisible. This time, a Google Glass Enterprise Edition will be destined during business uses of a oddball wearable, not a legendary “Glassholes” of yore.
Robert Scoble will no doubt be happy to hear a new chronicle is waterproof. It’s also foldable, with many other improvements. Beautiful plumage.
But consumers can’t buy it from Google. So what of a fabulous Project Aura?
In IT Blogwatch, bloggers are fed adult of saying Scoble’s flesh. Not to mention: Adele as you’ve never listened her before…
Your common blogwatcher curated these bloggy pieces for your entertainment.

Did someone contend “flesh”? Stephen Hall effects This is Google Glass: Enterprise Edition in a flesh:
Google’s subsequent pierce for Glass is clearly into a enterprise, and a device…has softened inner hardware, and a new demeanour built around a [foldable] button-and-hinge system.
The device has a some-more strong build, a incomparable prism…and is built to withstand bumps and bruises. [It] is waterproof and closed-off, to strengthen it from debris.
[It] is designed to be usually distributed by a Glass for Work startups. … It’s not expected that Google will be offered this device to consumers.
While these images are finally live on a FCC website…Google has nonetheless to strictly acknowledge a existence.
Wait, what do a Feds have to do with this? Dan Rosenbaum gets inside a story, in Google Glass for Enterprise Hits a FCC:
All electronic inclination in a United States need capitulation from a FCC before they strike a market. … Google has filed an focus for Glass for Enterprise.
The FCC filing is still mostly protected from meddling eyes — a primer isn’t publicly accessible, nor are sum of a technical contrast — though there are photos.
Paul Thurrott calls Hall’s organ “the saddest blog on a Internet.” He scribbles It’s baaaaaack: New images of Google Glass emerge:
Just when we suspicion that Google’s creepiest product ever had bit a dust, it turns out it’s only been sharp on a sequel.
Britain expects each blogger to do their duty. Nick Farrell, for one—Google shows off new glass:
We design that it will have a speedier Atom processor, improved battery life, and improved…5GHz WiFi.
The new chip means improved feverishness management.
There’s still no word on when Google will announce this headset.
Anything else? Rock me, Ron Amadeo—New Google Glass indication hits a FCC website:
Google Glass is not dead.
There have also been reports of a puzzling Google Glass reboot and a rename to “Project Aura.” We’ll guess…Aura isn’t what is pictured…and that work on a consumer chronicle is still ongoing.
The final we publicly listened of Glass was that it had been “reset” underneath a sharp eye of Nest’s Tony Fadell.
Meanwhile, stop seeking who would buy it. Instead, ask who would sell it. Here’s Dr Strange:
I could simply sell this as a $2000+ ascent on scanning/imaging systems if they make it accessible with a right collection and it isn’t tied to some ad associated information entertainment ****.
Update: So what about a elephant in a room? Here’s Alec Dacyczyn:
The eye tracking camera is still forked a wrong way; so a user still has to provoke everybody around them by regulating their voice to control it.
And carrying a camera that points out a front will still climb people out. How will anyone know we haven’t infirm or blocked a immature indicator light?
we might be in a marketplace for an always-present information smoothness device. But I’m not meddlesome in an always-present photography device that we wear on my head.
[Adele as you’ve never listened her before—probably as we wish never to hear her again]
