The Daily Show has turned its satirical lens onto Google Glass. Stories of Google Glass Explorers getting attacked, harassed, and expelled from venues are nothing new anymore, though to the average person seeing somebody walking around with Glass, it can be a touch unnerving. As Comedy Central's The Daily Show is apt to do, they dug into that uncomfortableness with comic results.
Update: Aaaaaaand it's gone. Google's store is now marked as out of stock.
Last week Google Glass ditched the invites and went on sale to anyone and everyone for just one day. That meant that whoever wanted to snag Glass could do so without any caveats, like having to sign up for the Explorer program or wait on an invite. While the Glass page is currently showing the program as closed once again, it appears that Glass may still be available for purchase directly from Google.
Our friendly neighborhood Android Central EiC, Phil Nickinson has a couple of extra Google Glass invitations, and since the official iOS app has now launched, he's generously offered to give them to a couple of iMore readers who'd like to get in on the ground floor of Glass. There are some pretty stiff requirements, however:
After it's brief appearance in the App Store a few days ago, MyGlass for iOS has once again returned. The app apparently needed Google Glass to receive an update first before it would work. That update has been released and MyGlass is now available in the App Store again.
Google has released MyGlass, an iPhone companion app for their Google Glass headset. MyGlass is used to pair and manage Glass right on your iPhone, including determining what notifications your receive, like Gmail and Google Now. The app includes some instructional videos, including how to turn on and wear Glass, as well as how to pair it with your phone.
