The wait is over. Within a year’s time frame, a Glass App Store will be instituted leading to sales of Google Glass. That will be the day when the populace gets a whiff of this brand new technology. However, what is not clear yet is whether it will be a subset of Google Play or an independent agency. 

The overall strategy of dedicating an app store for Glass in 2014 functions as a means of diversifying the domain of Google. Since this piece of technology is unique and unlike any other that has ever passed before, it is going to be getting an exclusive store. The plan was in the making since a long time and now the finishing touches are being put on it.

Once Google Glass enters its public beta stage it will be for sale. That will most probably occur by the end of this year. In July of this year there were rumors regarding this. But now it is signed, sealed and delivered as the proverb goes. The Google App Store is to be called “Boutique” though it is a wonder if that name will last before a better and more suitable epithet is chosen to replace it. 

Google’s wearable technology has definitely ruffled some feathers. For one thing it does not make for a safe and secure driving experience. Secondly, the fact that you can take pictures of strangers at a moment’s notice via this brilliant piece of technology mean issues having to do with invasion of privacy will have to be tackled. But then every new invention or discovery brings a host of problems in its wake. Later on they are resolved.

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 stage Wednesday at Google I/O. During ...
