With Nexus Q, Google Wants to Make Entertainment More Social –

It’s a really weird product that appears to try to capture the vibe of a high end Apple product…to bad that product is the iPod Hi-Fi which also never answered the question of “who the heck is going to buy this thing at this price?”

Google has finally “unveiled” Project Glass

April 5, 2012 Comments off

I agree with most of Stracci’s points as well as Gruber’s point about how much info Google could mine from this “helpful” technology.

I have one more observation.  Folks spend thousands of dollars for Lasik or hundreds of dollars a year for contacts to avoid wearing glasses.  The probability that folks want to pay hundreds of dollars to wear geek headgear strikes me as very low.

Mostly though I was thinking of Aliens, their helmet cams and the Lt.  Which the Google team kinda reminds me of.  So guys…how many combat drops?

Google has finally “unveiled” Project Glass. I say… – Not Stolen. Permanently Borrowed..

Transcript: Apple CEO Tim Cook at Goldman Sachs

I think these two are both profound; they’re not things where we run separate P&Ls on, because we don’t do that–we don’t believe in that. We manage the company at the top and just have one P&L and don’t worry about the iCloud team making money and the Siri team making money.

You know, if Sony did this they’d be a lot better off…but that’s nothing profound.  Still, I wonder how many other companies are run with essentially one or two top level P&L centers…
