All You Wanted To Know About Google’s High-tech Eyewear “Google Glasses” – Details, Features & Images

Google finally revealed the details about the much-anticipated Google Glasses, putting an end to the mystery and speculations around this high-tech eye-wear from the web’s search giant.

Earlier this year, Google had released some interesting details around what you could do with Google Glasses when put to practical use, on their project website in the form of a YouTube video. At the same time, Google also had opened a program “Glass Explorers” under which a few people were able to show their interest in getting their hands onto Google Glass for $1,500 and be its first users.

On all these occasions, the only thing missing was the specs and technical details of Google Glass. Since then, blogs and websites have been writing about this latest revolutionary project with people speculating its features – until today!

Google Glasses - Details, Specs, Features and Images

So, in this article I am listing down all that you wanted to know about Google Glasses which comprises of Google Glasses Features, Specs and some images. Before I jump on to talk about the features of this latest product by Google, let’s first have a glimpse at What “Google Glass Project.”

What is Google Glass?

Google Glass is a wearable high-tech eye-wear developed by the Web giant Google in the Project Glass. Google Glass displays information on-demand in a smartphone-like hands-free format that enables the user to interact with the internet using simple voice commands.

It is powered by Android (obviously!) and currently, authorized for use in the United States.

What You Can Do With Google Glasses?

Although, it might be a little harder to hear Glass or use voice input commands in noisy areas, and to see the Glass screen in bright sunlight, there is still a lot you can do with Google Glass – well, if you are convinced that you really need it!

Below are examples of simple voice commands you can use to interact with the internet via Google Glass.

Say “take a picture” to take a picture.

Record what you see. Hands-free.

Even share what you see. Live.

Directions right in front of you.

Speak to send a message.

Ask whatever’s on your mind – Google it.

Translate your voice.

Want Google Reader to Stay? Sign this Petition!

As you would already know by now, Google is going to officially kill “Google Reader” – it’s popular RSS news aggregation service – starting July 1, 2013. This also means all your third-party feed reader apps like FeedDemon, NetNewsWire, Reeder, Pulp and many more, which rely on Google’s RSS service will also be buried along with Google Reader.

RIP Google Reader

You are now left with no choice but to start looking for Google Reader alternatives or shift to apps like Feedly, Flipboard or Currents.

From Google’s official announcement,

We launched Google Reader in 2005 in an effort to make it easy for people to discover and keep tabs on their favorite websites. While the product has a loyal following, over the years usage has declined. So, on July 1, 2013, we will retire Google Reader.

There are two simple reasons for this: usage of Google Reader has declined, and as a company we’re pouring all of our energy into fewer products. We think that kind of focus will make for a better user experience. Users and developers interested in RSS alternatives can export their data, including their subscriptions, with Google Takeout over the course of the next four months.

As you can see, the main reason for closing down reader (as per Google!) is the decline in its usage over the years. I really wonder if Orkut’s usage hasn’t declined till now?? Google!? 😉

The decline in Reader’s usage can be attributed to the increased use of social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook, both to stay updated with the news and also to connect with a community of like-minded people!

If you rely on Google Reader (and related products) to access your favourite RSS feeds, and don’t want to see it go, you can sign this petition at, protesting against Google’s move to shut down Google Reader. This petition has already crossed the 120,000 mark for supporter’s signatures.

Will Google listen to the moans of Reader users? What do you think?

Techspeak is a take on english that is used while texting, instant messaging, Emailing, Social Networking. Some example I can refer to here are – LOL, TMI, OMG, FYI, AFAIK, etc.

The shortened language does all you to type more quickly (like “C” for “see,” “2” for “to”), but it also affects your grammar when writing a blog post or a piece of official document or email. The most impacted due to this are the students and professionals.

A study has revealed that the more students, the more it may impact their grammar – students who use techspeak a lot, may have trouble switching back to traditional grammar when needed. Research suggests the use of abbreviations, word substitutions, acronyms, and emoticons, are all major contributors to this decline.

How texting, IMs and social networks have a hit on your grammar and professional writing skills, why does it matter at all, let’s find out in this well researched infographic below.

Two iPhone 5 Flaws that Show How Much we Miss Steve Jobs

Ever since Steve Jobs left his legacy at Apple, people have been asking, what would Steve Jobs do?

Now that the iPhone 5 has been on the market for the past four-or-so months, people are still asking, what would Steve Jobs have done differently to fill in the gaps from missing features in iPhone 4S?

Steve Jobs

Samsung launched a marketing campaign jabbing at Apple’s newest phone, belittling its new design by pointing out its “biggest” achievements – like moving the headphone jack from the top of the phone to the bottom.

Samsung may have had some valid points, since this iPhone release was met with more disappointment than any previous releases. People take their phones seriously, whether it’s a smartphone or a home phone service. The reputation of the iPhone is so important that an Apple exec was even let go after the iPhone 5 release.

So how did this Apple fall so far from the iPhone tree?

Apple Maps

One of the biggest benefits of owning a smartphone is getting real-time directions and up-to-date maps. One of the biggest benefits of owning an iPhone is to get the best directions and the best maps. While no one expects perfection 100% of the time, what iPhone 5 customers got was below everyone’s standards. How below? So subpar that Richard Williamson, former VP of iOS Platform Services, was let go from the company has the overseer of Apple Maps.

Apple Maps replaced the popular Google Maps on the iOS platform, much to the dismay of millions of people who went out and stood in line to buy the iPhone 5. Why?

Blurry pictures – Is this real life? An image on your iPhone screen isn’t in beautiful, HD quality? When first released, Apple Maps images showed up as distorted, even warped.  Blurry pictures are not something that has previously been associated with iPhones, so the fact that the new 5 had taken a step back in quality was a big point of frustration for consumers.

Missing locations – Everyone knows the iconic Statue of Liberty. Everyone also knows that it should be standing proudly on Ellis Island. However, viral images went around of our Lady Liberty as nothing but a mere shadow.

Other reported mistakes were mislabeled locations, out-of-date locations, missing cities and towns, and misspelled cities (even the capital of Ukraine was spelled incorrectly).  Apple is quick and has made adjustments since these missteps were first reported back in the fall, but the fact that these mistakes were even made put a bad taste in consumers’ mouths.

NFC – Near Field Communication

One of the biggest wins for the iPhone 5 is Passbook. With this App, you can store boarding passes, concert tickets, coupons, rewards cards, etc. Something as convenient as this led many to believe that a Near Field Communication feature (or NFC) would be included as well.

NFC basically enables you to either touch or swipe your phone at a checkout, instead of using your debit or credit card.

As opposed to Apple Maps, this is considered a missed opportunity because it isn’t even included in the iPhone. However, word on the street is that the next iPhone adaptation will adopt NFC technology.

Are Asus Transformer Pads Good for Gaming?

Any tablet device looking to make a splash needs to offer users something special, as the mobile device market is a very competitive one, and people have got ample amount of choices available. The particular area where manufacturers want their devices to stand out is in gaming, which remains one of the most popular usages of mobile devices, and it can be argued that the Transformer Pad devices produced by Asus do offer plenty to recommend them to gamers.

Asus Transformer Pad


A frequent complaint amongst those gaming on a tablet – even hugely successful ones like the iPad – is the absence of a physical keyboard. Thus, the option of using a docking keyboard with all Asus Transformer Pad models makes the gaming experience a bit easier. The users have the luxury to get connected through the docking keyboard and enjoy unlimited gaming all day long.


This varies depending on the model you choose, but the more expensive Transformer Pads – like the Infinity, boast a screen size and image resolution that will have even Apple getting nervous :P. The all new stunning 10.1 inch of screen size is something amazing for the gamers.

Enabling Online Games

Bigger screen size and a powerful processor are the key factors in bringing good quality to the games. Many modern games utilize increasingly sophisticated and immersive graphics; meaning the quality of screen size and resolution very important to the overall experience.

Striking Attraction

The all new TF700 comes with a striking amethyst gray finish color. The metallic back with the silver color embossed on it gives a stunning look to the device. The tablet also comes in Champagne gold color. If you think colors will intrigue and will capture your interests apart from the gaming intentions, then TF700 can be the best pick for you.


The upgrades to the original Asus Transformer (the Prime and the Infinity) both feature quad core Nvidia processors which provide gamers with virtually unbeatable graphics and processing power, making them ideal for playing 3D games – whether it is online casino ones or any other type. This processor is available with all models of the Transformer Pad now, including the budget price 300 model. Infact, this is the only product to boast a 1.7 GHz CPU and has the capability to support the PS3 and Xbox controllers.


The Micro HDMI port of TF700 and some of its other Asus versions helps the users to connect the device to monitors or big screens. It helps them to play the games and enjoy a unique experience. You can get them connected through the wired PS3 or Xbox controllers. USB compatible games can also be played. It even supports gaming through dongle devices. So, what more is awaited and it’s time for the gamers to jump into action!!!


This has been a key area where all Android devices have always been lagged behind by Apple, but more of the popular iOS games than ever are now available for Android as well. In addition, really good games are starting to be designed for Android devices like the Infinity in particular, such as Zen Pinball THD.

Google store is stuffed with brand new games that are nascent when compared with the popularity of its Apple counterpart. However, the Android games are all set to give a tough challenge to the Apple games.

The transformer pads come with amazingly sharp and clear images even on big screens when connected. It is the perfect device for the full time gamers and the money you spend on this device is rightly justified.

Do let us know what do you feel about the Transformer Pad tablet range by Asus!

50 Quick Social Media Marketing Strategies

So, whether you are a retailer or marketer looking for innovative and creative ways of advertising to your customer base and sending out your sales pitch, you can use social media. Have a look at the ones I have personally tried and found effective, so you will an idea on what to do.


1. Optimise your Fan page


Fill out all the necessary fields with correct and complete details. These usually include your company name, your services or products (brief description), and your trade location. You can even insert localised keywords.

2. Create interesting albums

One way to attract fans is to entice them with entertaining and fascinating photos. Of course, these should stay relevant to your niche. Also Read: Some Interesting Facts about Facebook Photos

Put your targeted terms in strategic places such as the “About” section or business description in your profile. You can also integrate these in your Wall updates, short messages (whenever you embed a video), or image captions.

Obtain feedback or comments from your fans using the feature “Ask a Question. This way, you can get useful suggestions regarding the improvement of your products and services.


9. Balance your number of tweets


Tweeting is not as easy as writing messages every time you feel like telling your followers what you are doing. It actually requires careful planning and strategizing especially if you have a business profile.

With that said, you have to avoid being overly noisy or stagnant. As a rule of thumb, three compelling tweets (excluding replies or retweets) per day will suffice.

10. Follow back

As long as the person is not suspicious, why not add him or her to your network.

11. Post links to your site

Add your tweets with a link that directs your followers to an important webpage or blog article. And since Twitter only allows 140-character messages and some links are lengthy, you can shorten the latter using URL shorteners (e.g.

If you want your followers to take a second look at your tweets, include photos that are relevant to your enterprise.

13. Converse with “famous” people in your industry

Follow “reputable” individuals in your particular field and interact with them. By doing so, you can widen your connections and, hopefully, become a credible figure on the Web too.

14. Retweet

If you find some tweets interesting, entertaining, or useful, do not hesitate to Retweet them. It does not cost anything. On the contrary, it helps you gain more followers.

15. Interact

Reply to your followers if they send you messages. You should communicate with your potential customers and be accessible to them at the same time.


16. Post photos from your online pinboard to your blog

Much like the other networking sites, take time to interact with reputable members in your field.

18. Pin videos

Other than pictures, you can also post videos on your pinboard.

42. Avoid hard selling

Social Media Buzz

Many online consumers hate persuasive adverts. So if you use social media to market your goods or services, engage in conversation rather than direct promotion.

43. Stick to your business niche

Never digress from your main field. If you are going to post updates about your company’s merchandise, avoid talking about other matters.

46. Provide useful information

Always make sure that the insights you share over the Web are relevant, informative, and valuable. On top of all these, do not forget humour to retain the readers’ interest.

47. Use a single voice or perspective

Just like brand consistency, it is important to maintain the same viewpoint throughout your social profiles as well as your website and/or blog. Doing this makes it easier for the users to familiarise with your brand and interact with you on a more personal level.

48. Present a consistent image

Use the same photo, logo, font style, and colour scheme for all your online platforms.

49. Maintain constant communication

Interact with your fans or followers and avoid talking incessantly about yourself (through your posts). Instead, engage them to a conversation through questions or polls. This way, you will find out what makes them tick, what they are interested in, and what issues they want to know more about.

50. Be updated

Log in to all your social media accounts daily or several times in a day (if possible). Check your NewsFeed, look into the other users’ comments, and respond to enquiries or feedback.

Final Words

These are just some of the strategies I have practised, which may be useful to you. Of course, there are more ideas other than these. So if you have your own techniques, feel free to share them with the other readers.
