The Folks At The Daily Show Don't Quite Understand Google Glass [Video]

Glass Explorers have faced an unyielding torrent of discrimination from their clear-faced peers ever since Google first introduced the device to its first batch of eager early adopters. Wearers have been banned from certain restaurants and public areas, with people expressing concern over the ease with which Glass allows people to record others.

Listen up, Explorers - Glass is receiving a minor OTA update this afternoon that does, well, two relatively minor and not all that exciting things. First, your Glass will now do this when the battery is very low and Glass is unable to power on because of it:

Google's MyGlass App Jumps To Version 3.0 With Slick New Interface, Bug Fixes

As promised, the companion app to Google Glass, MyGlass, got a big update today. The bump from version 2.2 to 3.0 allows for sharing from Maps directly to Glass, but is otherwise purely aesthetic. Users will enjoy a slick new interface centered around a slide-out menu, which breaks out the Glassware Gallery, your active glassware, device info, and selected contacts into separate views.

This arrangement is infinitely more friendly than the previous interface, and glassware is now displayed more richly, with example screenshots in each listing along with a brief description and rundown of permissions.
