A YouTuber fixes Google's augmented reality glasses video:

When I saw Google had somehow forgotten to include any ads in their Project Glass promotional video I just couldn't resist fixing that oversight for them. 

Ira Glass saw this coming:

Glass said he suspected that these Google glasses would soon become mere vehicles for advertising, "and that doesn't seem like fun." Also, he failed to see the benefit of eyewear that could tell him it was raining. "Like, if you exist in the world, you don't need somebody to tell you what the weather is. You exist in the world and the weather is happening around you."
