Google giving public a shot at Glass on tax day

Having you been watching the development of Google Glass from the sidelines, saddened by the fact that you can't run down to Best Buy and purchase a pair? (Is 'pair' appropriate in this context?)

If so, pay attention! In what seems to me like a cruel irony, Google is going to make Glass available to anyone for one day only: April 15th. So yes, after Uncle Sam crushes your soul and squeezes every penny he can from you, you can pick yourself up and hand over $1,500 (plus tax of course) to become a "Glass Explorer." The deal is open to US residents only.

Here's the link you need to purchase Glass. The deal goes live at 9 am ET and supplies will be limited, but that form implies that maybe you're reserving a place in line by signing up now? It's worth a try and better than getting up at 6 am if you happen to be on the West Coast. For a little bit more info, check out the Google+ post that announced the deal.

In addition to the basic Glass (is there such a thing?) you'll also get "your favorite shade or frame, thanks to feedback from our current Explorers" whatever that means.

If anyone takes advantage of this offer please come back and leave a comment on this post.
