Google Scoble on Glass. "This week I gave five speeches while wearing it. I passed through airports four times (two more in a couple of hours). I let hundreds of people try my Google Glass. I have barely taken it off since getting it other than to sleep." The basic takeaway? "I've been telling people that this reminds me of the Apple II, which I unboxed with my dad back in 1977. It was expensive. It didn't do much. But I knew my life had changed in a big way and would just get better and better. Already this week I've gotten a new RSS app, the New York Times App, and a Twitter app. With many more on the way. This is the most interesting new product since the iPhone and I don't say that lightly."

Android isn't a walled garden, that's why. It's wide open except for what the OEMs do to it.

I wrote that with my tongue firmly in my cheek. With all the malware found recently perhaps some for of garden would be a good idea.

I do think Google should be fairly picky about what gets in to Google Play, but the system itself must remain wide open. Think Debian, not iOS.
