Google glasses that overlay the Internet on daily lives should hit the market within two years.

Google co-founder Sergey Brin gave the estimated timeline after a project update that included sky divers dropping in with a new version of “Glass” wearable computers.

Google Glass eyewear features built-in camera, microphone and speaker technology and can synch to the Internet using wireless Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connections. Mini-screens in the glasses can display text messages, email or other digitised information from the Internet or mobile gadgets. AFP

Glenn Chapman
SAN FRANCISCO: Google on Wednesday opened fire on iPad and Kindle Fire with a Nexus tablet designed to showcase the latest Android software and be a window into its online shop for films, movies and more.

The Nexus 7 tablet computer will be priced at less than half the cost of the market-leading iPad and broadens Google’s arsenal in its battle against Apple,, and Microsoft to be at the heart of Internet Age lifestyles. The seven-inch tablet powered by the latest generation of Android software is being made for Google by Taiwan-based Asus and weighs about as much as a paperback book and is available at a price of $199.  AFP
