Google Glass Explorers shop opens back up for all US residents

Thumbnail for 464

It looks like Google could have been trialing out a free-for-all sale model for the Glass Explorers program in their one day sale a couple of weeks ago. They’ve opened the purchase site back up for anyone in the United States to buy a pair of Google Glass without an invite.

We’re not sure whether this was intentional. If it was, we’re also not sure if this will be a permanent offering until Google starts the consumer-focused Glass launch. Either way, we’re pinging them for comment and we’ll be looking to share anything we find. For now you can take $1,500 of your hard earned money and purchase one at Google’s site if you’re interested.

Google+ lead Vic Gundotra officially leaving Google

A little over a year after Andy Rubin was replaced as the head of Android at Google, it looks like the big G is undergoing another major executive shake-up.

According to Re/code, Vic Gundotra is leaving Google. Gundotra is the SVP of Social at Google and has helped to push Google+ to the public. A Google spokesperson has confirmed the news of Gundotra’s departure.

Google hasn’t yet revealed who will be taking Gundotra’s place at the helm of Google+, but today’s report claims that it will be David Besbris, who currently works as VP of Engineering for Google+.

There’s no word yet on what Gundotra will be doing post-Google, but it’ll definitely be interesting to see where he ends up...

Samsung announces the Galaxy Beam 2, resurrecting the built in pico projector

The pico projector has returned! When Samsung released the original Galaxy Beam, I thought that the built-in pico projector was really cool. However, the device wasn’t really talked about much afterwards. I thought Samsung had given up on the technology, but with the release of the Galaxy Beam 2 today, we’re seeing another attempt!

The Galaxy Beam 2 retains the low-end status of its predecessor, sporting a 4.66-inch WVGA display, 1.2GHz quad core processor and a 2600mAh battery. But to offset that, though, you get a freakin’ built-in projector. And in classic Samsung fashion, there are software features that take advantage of the projector, including a clever flashlight.

Sadly, the Galaxy Beam 2 is only being released in China at this time, and it’s doubtful that it’ll expand to many other...

Heads up, IFTTT fans — the app has exited beta and is now available to download free in the Google Play Store. In case you don’t know what it is, IFTTT stands for If This Then That, an acronym that the site’s very function is named for.

If a certain action happens, such as Phandroid posting a news article, then post the title, an image and a link to that article on Phandroid’s Twitter account. That’s just one of many examples of things you can do with IFTTT recipes.

IFTTT for Android is pretty nice because it hooks into Android’s various elements. It can automatically change your wallpaper based on some condition. You can have it send a text to your spouse whenever your location shows that you’ve made it to work or back home...

With all of the video streaming options out there these days, it wouldn’t surprise us in the slightest if Redbox isn’t the first app that comes to mind when the movie-watching mood strikes. But a new app update has rolled out that freshens things up a bit for anyone who just really likes the feel of a physical disc. Now there’s a wish list in the sidebar for the media that is best saved for later.
