re: Google Glass Adds Path, Evernote Voice Commands
Some of the Forrester analysts are pretty confident Google Glass will be a big deal-- as big a developer opportunity as iOS, according to one of their statements. I see the potential for wearable technology to be useful. A smartwatch, for instance, could be paired in interesting ways with other devices and services within an ecosystem. There's also excitement around contextually-aware mobile apps that talk to big data cloud systems on the back end. Wearable devices could obviously factor into this kind of app.

But I'm less convinced of the most bullish expectations, especially when applied to devices worn on the face. Anyone else more sure of Glass's big time potential?

Here's a link to a column we ran by someone advocating Google Glass. His main point: for Glass to be a business hit, it needs to be tied to the workflows employees use to get things done.

re: Google Glass Adds Path, Evernote Voice Commands
While on vacation in San Diego last week, I spied someone wearing Google Glass for the first time. And I thought, "Boy, you really look like a dork." But the weather in San Diego is beautiful, so there's that.

I have trouble seeing how Glass will ever be socially acceptable. Google should focus on making it useful without interaction (Google Now, etc). Anything that requires tapping and scrolling could just as well be done with a mobile phone.

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
