Fate’s a funny thing. Yesterday morning, I was planning to spend the day as a hermit, avoiding the Boston marathon and the overpopulated city altogether. I had a lot of homework and final projects due this upcoming week, so I planned to devote my day to getting all that trivial stuff done.

The first time I heard about Google’s new product, Google Glass, I was freaked out. And now I’m intrigued. I’ve got to give major props to Google’s marketing team for this one. I was really against the mere idea of Google Glass until I saw the video on Google’s official site introducing the new product.
