Right now there’s very few details about Google Glass. If you’re like me this is mega frustrating if you’re thinking about coding stuff for it.
A few people have already done unboxings, some social celebrities on Google+ are actively raving about it, but really not giving much away!
So what are our hopes for Google Glass? How do we want it to work?
Here are some of my Google Glass hopes and musings:
1. I really hope the ‘audio trigger’ can be changed from “Ok Glass,”.
2. I hope it will be accessible to most people, this means it needs to be around £200 or cheaper.
3. Is it viewable in low light conditions?
4. Can I hook into its ‘sensors’ or shall I continue with my own Wearable API.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year: a new WordPress release is available and chock-full of goodies to delight bloggers and developers alike. We’re calling this one “Elvin” in honor of drummer Elvin Jones, who played with John Coltrane in addition to many others.

The dust and cobwebs have been brushed off homer and he has spent the last couple of days being updated and sorted out. WordPress is will now be updated yet again, and some diskspace issues are being sorted out, in readiness for my new PC which we should hopefully be purchasing tomorrow. Geekfix.net is the number 1 priority right now. I’m determined to make it work!
A nice little app that is currently in Beta from Nokia is their Sport Tracker. Load it up on your GPS enabled phone, and then start your run, bike ride, or walk. Ive been using it today to track my scooter route to Stapleford. I’m very impressed! You can export a .KML file from the appplication which you can then use with Google Maps, Google Earth etc and create a nice map containing other information about your ‘workout’. While the 19.98 miles I did on the scoot this morning wasn’t exactly tiring, it did show some interesting data: (Not least a top speed of 53.9mph!)
