Google "Mobile phones may generate the fastest-growing segment of Google's revenue, but the experience of using them still bothers Google co-founder Sergey Brin. Speaking at the TED Conference today in Long Beach, Calif., Brin told the audience that smartphones are 'emasculating'. 'You're standing around and just rubbing this featureless piece of glass', he said." He's definitely right, but whether Glass is the answer, I don't know. The geek in me loves the technology, but I doubt its practicality.

Probably just wanted to prove that his vocabulary wasn't emasculating, though whether he intended the amusement over two completely unrelated words is anyone's guess.
