Rumors have the ability to masquerade as truth. Yet all it takes is the needle of reality to pop the bubble of falsehood. Take the one about Google Glass arriving in Best Buy stores and that too for $299. Both were fake statements. There was even talk of a lot of space being dedicated to the product in the Best Buy storage quota. The capacity was said to be 6000 square feet to be exact. That’s a pretty huge number. Yet the size of a Best Buy store is 45,000 square feet. Google Glass is totally different from anything else on the market. It is a one of a kind device that you can’t find a simile for. So this was news for a while.  

While the whole thing turned out to have been exaggerated bosh and tosh, the fact of the matter is that Best Buy is still open to the idea. It may not be collaborating anymore, yet that does not mean it has closed its doors on the product par excellence. Both Best Buy and Google Glass have a lot to gain from each other. The possibility of a rapprochement cannot be ruled out. At least not in the long run that is. Rumors too can be reheated in the microwave of change for later times. And though this one seems to have been too good to be true, it may enter the realm of facts after some duration.

When Google introduced Google Glass, the wearable display only worked with Android phones and tablets. It took some time, but last December Google created a MyGlass companion app for iOS, allowing iPhone owners to get most of the same functionality from Glass as Android users. That’s not likely going to happen with Android Wear, however. The first clue was when Dave Singleton, Google’s Android Engineering Director, shared more Android Wear details on ...
