[Bug Watch] Something Has Broken 'OK Google' Everywhere On The Nexus 9, We're Just Not Sure What It Is

Let's change the way we think about Google Glass for a moment. At the end of the day, they're just too jarring for the average person to feel comfortable wearing in public. To people who don't know what they are, they're weird. To people who do, they're $1,500 worth of easily-stolen accessory being flaunted on your face.

[Update: It's Over] Google Will Give You And Every New User You Send Money To Through Google Wallet (In The US) $5 For A Limited Time

Update: The promo has ended.

For a limited-time, Google is willing to pay people to invite their friends to use Wallet. The tech giant will provide you and the recipient with $5 in credit whenever a friend who doesn't already have a Google Wallet balance receives money from you. Any amount is fine, including as little as a penny. All that matters is that you both live in the US and that they don't already have an account.
