$299 Google Glass is Not Coming to Best Buy in 2014
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 BestBuystores 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. GoogleGlass 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.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
