Google Glass specs: 16GB of storage, 5MP camera, and more


Google has been rolling out a variety of Glass-related materials following its announcement on Monday that Explorer edition pairs were in production and some would possibly begin shipping today, with the rest following in waves in the near future. Nearly a year after they were unveiled at Google’s I/O, we finally have a run down of the device’s specsAccording to a Glass support page made public by Google, the device will have a 5-megapixel camera

with up to 720p video recording and 16GB of storage contained in what is said to be a durable frame that is one-size-fits-all (with the aid of adjustable nose pieces). If you’re wondering how the display will look, according to the support pages, it will be fairly pleasant. The display is said to be equivalent to looking at 25-inch high definition television from a distance of 8-feet, meaning it won’t appear terribly large, but certainly won’t have you squinting in an effort to make things out. Audio is delivered via bone conduction, and a single battery charge is said to last all day, so you won’t have to part with the headset halfway through the day to recharge.
Connectivity includes standard 802.11b/g WiFi and Bluetooth, as well as a micro USB port for data transfer and charging (users are advised to use the Glass-specific charger rather than a generic one). Finally, compatibility is with any Android smartphone running 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich or higher, as well as the MyGlass app, which is now available from the Google Play Store.

LG Display’s work on flexible OLEDs has been underway for some time, though the company’s efforts have perhaps been overshadowed somewhat by rival Samsung’s YOUM development. Last year, according to a Korea Times report, LG Display was preparing for

Syrian Electronic Army claims credit for CBS Twitter accounts hack

Yesterday, several of CBS ’s Twitter accounts were hacked, including its main account, and its accounts for 60 Minutes, 48 Hours, and CBS Denver. The hackers got into the account and tweeted a series of things relating to President Obama and the United States being in cahoots with Al-Qaeda . The tweets also had links that led users to malware-infested sites. While CBS was able to regain access to its accounts, it was unable to figure out who was behind the attacks, until now. The Syrian Electronic Army , the same group that hacked 3 of the BBC’s Twitter accounts, claimed

Can Technology Do a Better Job of Finding Bombs?

 With the horrifying images of the Boston Marathon bombing still much too fresh in our minds, and with citywide marathons coming up this weekend in London, Hamburg, and Salt Lake City , law enforcement officers and citizens everywhere are asking how to prevent the tragedy from being repeated. As Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs adjunct professor Abraham Wagner observed last year, on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, there’s “no magic bullet o
