If you are a quick glance, you might wonder why we highlight the image of a middle-aged hipster in the subway. But if you look closer, you’ll realize the dude who wears some pretty slick glass.
Glasses valued at approximately $ 1,500, in fact.
Yes, the picture above shows Google’s Sergey Brin smiled for the camera, wearing a pair of glass subway Google. The photo was taken by Noah Zerkin, and posted on Twitter. “Yeeeah … I just had a brief conversation with the most powerful man in the world. In downtown 3 trains. Good people, “he wrote.
Of course, this is not the first time that Sergey Brin was seen rocking Glass Google in public. He is actually known for sports project which is pretty much everywhere: charity event, Google, and now the subway.
Google recently sent invitations to pre-orderers Glass project for a two-day Hackathon event called Glass Foundry. They hackathons will take place on January 28 in San Francisco and on February 1 in New York City.
MediaPost reported that three Gmail users filed a lawsuit against Google this week related to the violation of privacy since the launch of Google Buzz.
Google Buzz, in case your memory of the event on the Internet is not covered further back, previous attempts by Google to social media, launched about a year and a half before Google+ arrived. It was introduced as part of Gmail, and launched a major blow over privacy issues.
Official Google Buzz changed in October 2011, when it registered with the Code Search, Jaiku and iGoogle’s social features as some products that Google will stop support.
“Changing the world takes focus on the future, and honesty about the past,” said Google’s Bradley Horowitz time. “We learned a lot from products like Buzz, and put that learning to work every day in our vision for products like Google+.”
In the same month, the Federal Trade Commission has completed a settlement with Google Buzz above, in which he announced earlier this year. Google has decided to allegations that he used deceptive tactics and violated privacy promises to consumers, but prohibits the company from the “mistakes” the future of privacy and requires Google to implement “comprehensive privacy program” and called for an independent privacy audits for 20 years.
Even since then, I have been having problems with the FTC privacy in Safari-gate debacle, which saw Google paid $ 22.5 million.
Google previously has agreed to pay $ 8.5 million to pay the class action litigation regarding Google Buzz. According to MediaPost, claiming that this week objected to the settlement, and filed new papers with the court in the Eastern District of New York. Apparently one of them is also seeking to represent a class of 500 other users to join the pre-settlement.
