Last week, The New York Times’ David Pogue finally got to fiddle with Google Glass. What does the nation’s top tech critic make of the prototype? First off, it’s “an
absolutely astonishing feat of miniaturization and integration,” he marvels. “The hardware breakthrough, in other words, is there.” Pogue, however, refrains from judging the software
because Google is still working on it. As for the existing design and $1,500 price tag, well, Pogue admits Google has some work to do in those key areas, and, as such, stops short of predicting the
gadget’s ultimate success.
