I guess this site needs a new name now

Well that’s that.

The Google Glass social media accounts—including Twitter, Google+, Instagram, and others—have finally been shut down after many months of continued #throughGlass postings and “Happy [insert holiday]!” images. This doesn’t come as much surprise as plans to bring Glass to the consumer market (at least by that name) have long been abandoned, but multiple people familiar with the matter say that Glass: Enterprise Edition is only just now starting to see wider adoption…

Looks like I’m off to buy AuraFans.com. Thanks for following along, everyone. It was a great ride.

 

 

Fortune 500 firm interested in acquiring CrowdOptic to build apps for Glass ‘Enterprise Edition’

Me, writing for 9to5Google (as usual):

CrowdOptic is one of the most well-established of the 10 current Glass for Work parters, and now the company is in acquisition talks. According to people familiar with the matter, the company has been in advanced discussions with a Fortune 500 firm that intends to build software applications for the upcoming iteration of enterprise-focused Google Glass hardware

Any Fortune 500 company making apps for Glass using CrowdOptic’s well-received technology is notable for the platform. Glass isn’t dead.
