My non tech friends seem to know a great deal about Google Glass. Surprisingly more than one of them want a pair and who’d blame them.

Why I like cloud computing

I think cloud computing is great, this morning I was able to purchase an album on my Macbook using the iTunes store. I am now, thanks to the cloud, able to listen to the music on my iPad and iPhone without having to download the music, it saves me both time and precious memory on my mobile devices and for that I am thankful. It really does make me appreciate cloud computing. I hope that you are having a great day.

Google Glass lets iPhone owners get SMS 

[From Mike S, NYC] Get your iPhone SMS notifications to your Google Glass. “Even though Google Glass’ firmware was just updated to Android KitKat, the wearable computer is bringing more features to its users’ right eyes this week. SMS for iPhone beams text messages to the line of vision of iOS users who love their Glass, but refuse to give up their Apple handset for an Android phone.” Read in full.

Samsung Gear Fit review 

[From Hans] A good review. “Fitness trackers and smartwatches come a dime a dozen, but devices that combine the best of both? Still exceedingly rare. Now, however, Samsung thinks it has the perfect solution in the Gear Fit, a fitness band with a beautiful, curved screen, as well as a heart rate monitor, pedometer and a few smartwatch features thrown in for good measure. It’s an ambitious product, no doubt, but unfortunately, this $200 fitness-tracking smartwatch hybrid didn’t quite meet my expectations. Here’s why.” Read in full.

In Brazil and how people are using their mobile devices.

I’m in Brazil at the moment and I am seeing a variety of various mobile devices in use, for example a lot of people are using iPhones, especially iphone 5 devices. I can see Samsung phones and I have seen a couple of Note devices I cannot tell whether they are Note 2 or Note 3 devices but there are a number of them being used. I was surprised at the number of people ware using iPads at the beach, quite a few people using them as ebooks, personally I use my iPad to read magazines, I have a of Brazilian magazines that I like to read and as I can speak portuguese it makes a nice change. I did see someone using a Palm device earlier today and it was a m515, great to see people still using Palm OS PDA’s. Anyway I hope that you have had a peaceful Easter for those that celebrate the tradition, we have a great week ahead, more throwaways so stay tuned.

The Google Glass "Try Before You Buy" Home Kit.  

[From Mike S, NYC] Try Google Glass before you buy. “Google is offering a “home try-on kit” for free to anyone that wants to see what Glass feels like and looks like. The kit includes Glass in four colors with all of the new frame styles, and also has prepaid return labels. This is all free, but Google will put a $50 hold on a credit card until the kit is returned.” Read in full
