Would you wear Google Glasses?

By MT

Google Glass is a revolutionary new product that allows individuals to do a number of tasks that normally require a smart phone to do.  It is essentially a pair of glasses that you wear to take videos, snap pictures, get directions and ask questions.  If it catches on it would change the way that humans interact on a daily basis.  These glasses feel like they were taken right out of a spy movie.  They are even being banned in certain building, including restaurants and bars.  This is because of privacy; privacy will be a hurdle for Google and their new product.

How does it feel to where the glasses?

Will the average consumer buy Google Glasses?

It depends on the final price, the final design and on how much they promote the product.  I think that the average consumer would buy this product if the price is between 300 and 500 dollars.  However the test units are selling for 1500 dollars; I don’t think the average consumer is willing to pay 1500 dollars for a pair of smart glasses.  I do think there is a market for this product even if the average consumer doesn’t buy it.  I believe that technology and gadget enthusiast will buy this product.

Will I purchase the Google Glasses?

Yes, if I have the money I will purchase the Google Glasses when they are released to the general public.  I think the ability to take videos and pictures of what the user is seeing is really cool and different.  I hope that they make a model that doesn’t require a contract because I am not willing to pay for data.  I  also hope the glasses have the ability to sync with your smartphone.  Google Glass will change the way that individuals see the world.

Start Menu Returns on Windows

By MT

Windows 8

Microsoft is going to release an update to their current operating system this summer.  It is exciting because a lot of individuals have not been happy with Windows 8.  However this update doesn’t look as promising as it could have been.  This update is going to bring the start button back; it is also going to allow the user to boot into the desktop when they turn there computer on.  These are the most noticeable updates that Windows Blue will include.

Why doesn’t Windows Blue look that promising?

Windows Blue doesn’t look that promising because the start button doesn’t bring up the original start menu.  Instead it just allows the user to enter the application screen.  I don’t want two different interfaces on my computer at the same time.  Windows should use the application interface for their tablets and the desktop interface for their desktops and their laptops.  It confuses the consumer and it is not integrated well.

Will I be updating to Windows Blue when it comes out this summer?

Yes, I will be updating to Windows Blue when it is released this summer.  Some of the features are a step in the right direction.  I am glad that Microsoft is allowing the user to boot right up to the desktop.  Another feature that I am looking forward to is the ability to snap three applications together all in the same window.  If you are a Windows 8 user you should definitely update to Windows Blue when it is released.  Just don’t expect anything revolutionary in Windows Blue.
