Google Glass headset to come with bone-conduction

Google has been very merry about its plans for Google Glass — the company said the first Explorer Edition of its virtual reality headset would be available in 2013, with the glasses displayed at the FCC. The glasses appear to have 2.4GHz 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi — though one of the FCC's filings only reveals 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi, so it's hard to say for sure — and the latest Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy technology on board. Another conflict we've noticed is the charging method, as one filing lists a USB charger and another lists a barrel connector.
More interesting is  that indicates Glass will contain a vibrating element that will provide audio to the wearer via contact with the user's head.We can't be sure until we see it ourselves, but that sound an awful lot like bone conduction technology, which would make a lot of sense for this product. If true, this corroborates a patent application Google filed for a wearable computing device with bone-conduction speakers. While the filings haven't revealed any other significant details, it's a good sign that this product might soon be making its way to the developers who dropped $1,500 down on one of Google' most ambitious products ever.

Chrome - Hints of Google Now

After updating its Chrome OS with Aura,Google is getting ready for a new feature: a new notification center,which are in the form of templates.The new notification can be enabled by toggling a flag in Chrome's settings making way for users to create own notification using extensions.

Beaufort guesses that the Notification Center could become the hub for Google Now in the near future.Recently there has been hints of skeleton framework for the predictive search.So if at all Google brings  Google Now to chrome, a huge wave is made available for its eco-system.What do u think?Would u buy one,if this happens?

Google pledges fight over government access to users' email?

In a blog post on Monday, linked to Data Privacy Day, Google's chief legal officer, David Drummond, said the internet giant, in coalition with many other powerful tech companies, will try to convince Congress to update a 1986 privacy protection law.He cited data showing that government requests for Google's user data increased more than 70% since 2009.

In 2012, Google said, it received 16,407 requests for user data affecting 31,072 users or accounts, more than half of them accompanied by a subpoena.

The US Electronic Communications Privacy Act, passed in the early days of the Internet, does not require government investigators to have a search warrant when requesting access to old emails and messages that are stored online, providing less protection for them.

Tech Giants like Microsoft,Google,Yahoo,Twitter and other social networks have placed a policy which requires a submission of a search warrant in order to get details about their users.

Last year, Goodlatte said he was willing to consider the privacy law reform, but that the timeline then was too short for a "thorough examination." Leahy has now included the change of privacy laws as one of his top priorities this year.
