It seems like if you're willing to strap a computer to your face, you should at least be able to listen to music with it. However, that isn't an option with Google Glass, but it will be in just a few short weeks. Google has announced that Glass Explorers will soon have the option to stream tunes from Google Play Music on Glass. There will also be new Glass stereo earbuds available for a proper listening experience.

Google has just started rolling out the new XE11 update to Google Glass units, and the system image is already online and available for tinkering. Just head on over to the Glass developer site to download the newest image and rooted bootloader, if you're into that sort of thing.

Back when the Google Glass Explorer program was starting up, there was a bit of a to do about the fact that users of the beta hardware were not permitted to sell their Glass units. After some consumer uproar, Google amended their position to allow lending Glass to others on a limited basis. They still preferred people not sell Glass, and explicitly told Explorers that their Glass units would be disabled if they did so.

In a move that's sure to please Glass explorers, Google's added a "Glassware" tab to the online MyGlass interface. The Glassware "Boutique" is something many expected to come with the XE10 update, after Google began accepting submissions for review. The update came without a peep about the boutique, but we found plenty of ways new Glassware could hook its claws into your Glass once approved.

While no new apps have been added to the Glassware section at the time of writing, it would seem Google's getting ready to provide easy access to approved apps.

Today Google Glass got its awaited update to XE 10 (explorer edition 10), and it looks like the system image is already up for grabs from Google's developer site. For those who missed our earlier post, XE10 brings transit directions, the ability to click links in notifications, and new visual flare by way of profile photos embedded behind messages or comments.

If you want to grab the update, you're looking at a 343MB download.

Starting today, anyone with Glass can now submit their own creations to MyGlass, the Google Glass app store. Google has opened up the Glassware Review Process to any developer seeking to make their software available to the many Explorers who already happen to own a pair. All a developer has to do is take a look at the Distributing Glassware documentation and meet the basic requirements provided.

Today's announcement coincides with the release of several new third-party Glassware in MyGlass.

Google Glass is neat, but it's currently short on third-party apps because Google hasn't opened up the Glassware app ecosystem yet. While we wait for that to happen, the data sync service Zapier has added support for Glass that connects it to over 200 online services.

Zapier is based around triggers and actions. If you've ever used ITTT, it's a similar idea. Each "Zap" is basically used to make two services interact.

Google has started rolling out the newest update to Glass, dubbed XE9. This version of the Glass software enables Google Apps users to sign into glass, which was a major requested feature. There are also new Google Now cards, sound search, and a cool UI overlay feature called Vignettes.

Odds are you don't yet have access to Google Glass yet, but the MyGlass app should be quite robust by the time you can buy Google's face-computer. A new update to MyGlass allows you to control the Glass UI from the screencast experience on your phone or tablet.

A screencast on Google Glass is a way to stream the Glass interface in real time to a regular Android device.

Yet another Google Glass update means yet another Google Glass Teardown - we're now up to version "XE8." Despite Glass being a complete nightmare to do diff work on (every file is in every APK), and the highly experimental nature of Glass (stuff gets removed all the time), Glass teardowns have actually had a pretty good hit rate.

Finally. A feature I've wanted since the first day I opened Google Glass: Google Hangouts support.
