Will Google Glass work with prescription eyewear?

bralphye

As my avatar suggests, I have worn glasses since I was a little kid. I know it will be a while before most of us can get Google Glass, but does anyone know if they are (it is) compatible with prescription glasses?

Ugh, it probably will but why would you want it? Google has gotten a fair amount of criticism over privacy issues, do you really want them to know what you're looking at? I will take a pass.

Google actually posted a photo of a version of Google Glass being worn with prescription glasses. So, to quote Google, "The short answer is: yes!"

The Apple TV is like that old friend from college--pretty cool, but always crashing in your living room. Its inconsistent stability, frustratingly anemic content offering, and lack of rich input methods have kept it from becoming what Apple enthusiasts long swore it would be: the iPhone of TV set-top boxes. Though its interface and hardware continue to evolve, the little black box faces real competition from faster-moving players that are offering more, like the Roku 3 and the new Fire TV from Amazon.
