So, if they're going to behave more like a startup, does that mean that they're no longer going to make it difficult to customize their Android phones? Last time I checked, they were still locked down such that you cannot write to the boot loader and that means no rolling your own Android or using Cyanogenmod.

Comment Left-eyed this time? (Score 1) 45

I see no mention of whether or not a left-eyed version will be available or if it can be switched to serve whichever eye the user wants. How about that and provisions for using along with a normal set of eyeglasses. I'd rather not have to have to get another set of lenses just for a Glass.

By the way, do any of you remember the 1992 compute and console game "Flashback"?

The big thing you have to remember about this is that traits are not one-to-one with genes. One gene can affect many different traits and one trait can be affected by many different genes. When you genetically engineer an organism, you run the risk of creating or altering traits you never intended. This can and has lead to problems like feed corn that's toxic to the cattle and pigs it was intended for.
