Google puts Glass Explorer Edition out to pasture with final update

It’s been a wild ride, but Google is officially ending support for the Explorer Edition of Glass. The headset was announced back in 2012 to a bit of a public backlash, with people worried about being recorded by Glass users. While it did have its fans, it wasn't long before Google pulled the plug and refocused efforts on enterprise users. Now one final Glass update is available that will remove the connection to backend services, along with the ability to use a Google account with the hardware.

Other companies have followed suit with devices like the Yoga C630 from Lenovo and some HP X360. In this competitive landscape, Acer has a compelling solution of its own: the Acer Chromebook 715.

Currently, there is no other large Chromebook on the market that has those last two features.
