Google So yeah, Google totally just won the conference showdown by easily beating both Apple and Microsoft. Not only did Google announce Android 4.1 with some really cool new features, a cheap but non-crippled tablet, and a new Android device called the Nexus Q, but they also opened up pre-orders for Google Glass. So yeah.

Glass as an ultimate advertising bearer.

Google is an ad company, and if you thing for a while, the glass like device development must be pushed by their desire to disrupt that business once again.
Just imagine:
1. It knows your location and knows location of advertisers
2. It's way more pervasive than other devices
3. The adv. space is unlimited
To sum up, an advertiser heaven.
Expect the glass like devices to be heavily subsidized in the future.

Then Microsoft is a licensing company and Apple is a sales company.
There is a difference between monetization strategy and what a company is.

So, we should expect Glass to be passionately hated? And/or adblock will get a whole new meaning...
