Google Sent Out Broken Glass to Try on "For Look Purposes Only"

Is the only thing holding you back from entering the world of Glass the fact that you can't decide which colour best brings out your eyes? Worry no more. Google's fixed the problem by sending potential Explorers all four colours of Glass' Titanium Collection.

Report: Google Might Let Americans Buy Google Glass, But Only for a Day

Google is reportedly gearing up to let anyone in the United States buy Glass—for about a day.

A Weekend of Dark Beer With the World's Greatest Stout Glass

It's just not fair: every single grape varietal and wine style, including some that no one has ever even heard of (Kalterer See Auslese, anyone?), has its own specially designed glass. Even Coca-Cola now has one. But, for beer, your standard mouth-delivery vehicle is the same, whether you're drinking the wateriest Bud Lite or a limited edition, quadruple-hopped, barrel-aged brew: either a shaker pint glass (so-called because it was designed for making martinis), or, if you're super classy, the bottle itself.
