What does VR have in common with Google Glass?

When Google Glass first appeared we were less than polite about how easily it would catch on. We wrote of people walking, blinking and winking into lamp posts, of people behaving in silly fashions in restaurants and various others situations that were ripe for ribbing. Then, some time later, Google quietly withdrew Glass and we […]

AR is years away for consumers, but what about the enterprise?

Between a surprising re-launch of Google Glass and a major pivot by Meta, it is increasingly clear that while augmented reality (AR) makes sense in the enterprise, it is years away from the consumer market. Google has quietly relaunched Google Glass as a smaller unit with upgraded electronics that can attach to a range of […]

It seems Google Glass is back, but not as we knew it. The first version was always going to be a little experimental, but Google probably didn’t realise that publications (like DisruptiveViews) and those testing the product would behave like Glassholes. What Google has done is re-invent Glass as an enterprise model. And you can […]

Google Glass, wearables and the blurring of the IoT

The first iteration of Google Glass was laughed off stage. We were as guilty as others of poking fun at this weird new technology. We thought it would result in people wandering about, blinking and waving and (having been hacked) walking into lampposts. And, some months ago, it quietly disappeared. A smaller, and smaller minded, […]

We would be the first to admit that we were less than enthusiastic about Google Glass. We were actually pretty rude. We had this vision of people walking down the street, winking and blinking and bumping into things. And, sure enough, it quietly disappeared with those that clung to the dream being labelled as Glassholes. […]

Google may have pulled the plug on the Explorer edition of its Google Glass, but the company has been steadfast in insisting a new version of the controversial wearable computer will be coming out under the direction of Nest boss Tony Fadell. Read more here…

The recent headlines that Google Wallet is apparently coming to Google Glass pushed the BillingViews’ brain cell into overdrive. Oh, the witty headline, the bon mot, the double entendre! The world, we felt, was our oyster (avoid cliches, like the plague – ed). Amongst the slightly daft scenarios drafted by journalists following Google’s every move are a […]

Exciting news in the wearable tech sector, if sector it be. Virgin Atlantic are trialing Google Glass to enhance the customer experience for their Upper Class passengers. So, when you, the honoured Upper Class passenger step from your chauffeur driven limo you are greeted by a stewardess in the smart, regulation Virgin red. Presumably then she […]

Hashtag time for Barcelona watchers – what will be news at #MWC14

Written by on February 21, 2014 in BillingViews, News with 0 Comments

 Last year, we didn’t do too badly with our hashtags for MWC 2013. We wanted to watch billing and pricing obviously, but we also wanted to watch NFC and the OTT players. Both turned out to be issues debated throughout the year. This year, we will be watching some similar ones, some different. #Wearable_tech – […]
