No adverts allowed on Google Glass
Developers who are working on Google Glass apps have been told that they will not be allowed to work adverts into them because, presumably, it makes a huge difference if an ad is near your eyes or not.
The newly-published t&cs also prohibit companies charging for apps, which is actually rather good news.
As we wrote yesterday, the goggles will have a five megapixel camera and voice-activated controls, and they're being shipped out now. There will also be a bone conduction transducer which basically allows users to hear audio without the need for headphones as the sound is transferred through your skull.
Weird and fancy.
Of course, there's no word on what our personal privacy will be like as yet (something that has irked privacy groups) so what data will be picked up as we roam around is unclear. That said, while these glasses seem slightly more intrusive, they're effectively a normal smartphone stuck on the front of your head.
That said, it didn't stop one campaigning group - called Stop The Cyborgs - from shrieking: "We want people to actively set social and physical bounds around the use of technologies and not just fatalistically accept the direction technology is heading in," adding hysterically that these glasses could be "the most controversial device in history".
