Google Glass is getting some love at Google I/O as well. New applications have been released - Facebook, Twitter, Evernote, Elle, Tumblr, and CNN. Perhaps more interesting: the newly announced Google Glass Developer Kit will allow offline applications and direct hardware access - great for hacking and expanding Glass' potential. This kit will really allow hackers to put Glass through its paces.

"Facebook and Twitter huh? What kind of tool buys that device to use Facebook and Twitter on it? What a waste.

This strikes me as "who would want to use email when we already have voicemail on our phones?"
That makes absolutely no sense to me. I don't see how you equate email vs. voicemail to facebook on a cellphone vs. facebook on a pair of glasses (for lack of a better description).

IMO a device like Glass has far better & more beneficial uses than simply as another way to upload pictures of your lunch to Facebook. It would be nice to focus on _new_ ways to take advantage of technology rather than `you can use Facebook from your phone, your pc, your refrigerator, and now even your eyewear!`.
