Google Glass

Google's Project Glass arrived with a splash at Google's I/O 2012 a couple of months ago, but since then we've heard little about the wearable glasses prototype. That is until now when chief dreamer executive at Google, Sergey Brin, appeared on the catwalk at the New York Fashion Week along with designer Diane von Furstenberg who showed the glasses on her models.

Project Glass is basically a display you wear on a frame much like glasses and operated with a tiny touchpad on the side, and it comes with a camera so that you can capture all kinds of moments you wouldn't otherwise be able to catch.

Today we're thrilled to collaborate with the visionary and celebrated designer Diane von Furstenberg. For the past week, we've been using Glass to capture the DVF creative process from entirely new perspectives.
Soon you'll get a glimpse into what it's like to design, prepare and experience the DVF show at New York Fashion Week through Diane's eyes and a few other views.
The short film ‘DVF through Glass' will be released on Thursday, September 13 on the DVF Google+ page ( and Google's YouTube channel ( We will also post exclusive images from Glass to the DVF Google+ page live during the show. #DVFthroughGlass
"I am so excited to introduce Glass to the fashion world and use this revolutionary technology to give everyone a unique perspective into fashion." - Diane von Furstenberg
"Beauty, style and comfort are as important to Glass as the latest technology. We are delighted to bring Glass to the runway together with DVF." - Sergey Brin, Google co-founder.




Google Play recommend

Google has quietly rolled-out a new feature for the Google Play Store that personalized app recommendations. Google has had featured lists, and editor's picks for a while now, but this is the first truly personalized recommendations that the Google Play Store has offered on mobile. The recommendations have been available on the web for about a month, but this is the first time it's gone mobile.

The recommendations are found in the Apps tab of the Google Play Store, and feature a mix of apps and games that you may like. The recommendations are based on what apps your friends have +1ed on Google+, what apps are popular in your area, and apps that are "popular with similar users". Although that last one isn't explained, we would assume it is something pulled from the "user who installed this app also installed..." listings that you find on app pages.




Google Music

Google has just Updated its Cloud-Music App, Google Play Music to Version 4.3.609 with some minor changes and mostly it would benefit the Android .1 Jelly Bean users and Google TV users too.

Google released updates for two of their major apps on the same day. The first is the Google+ app, which gets some cool new features. The first one is that the Google+ app now allows teenagers to create and join Hangouts from their mobile, which wasn't possible before due to age restrictions.

Another cool feature is that the mobile app now allows you to do Hangouts on Air using your smartphone, something that could only be done on desktop before. In case you are not aware, Hangouts on Air lets you create webcasts over Google+.


Maps 6.10


About the New Google Maps 6.10, the first thing you'll notice after you install the update is that it has a new icon, which for some reason does not show up on the Play Store page on either the phone or the web site.


This update also brings changes to the Transit feature and now you can choose a particular type of transportation system and only show transit lines for that system. There is also an updated layout for station pages.
