Google Glass

I realize this is not specifically sprint related, but there is a ton of technologically savvy people here who may be curious or be interested in a discussion about them.
 
So after however many months of waiting, I recently received an invitation to the google glass project.
 
After a lot of internal debate on spending that much money, I went ahead and ordered and received them last week.
 
Initial thoughts were they are decently light-weight and comfortable to wear, but battery life severely limits extended use without being plugged in.
 
It can probably be best explained as a bluetooth connected extension of your phone, where you can take/receive voice/video calls, texts/email, search, get driving/walking directions, etc.
 
There is a camera button where you can quickly take pictures or short videos, and while facebook sharing is apparently recently broken, you can send to google+ or some contacts.
 
I will save further impressions for another post, but if you have any questions or comments feel free to chime in.
 

I also have been sent an extra invitation which will expire soon, so if you have $1500+tax and accessories ready to plink down and are interested in being in the glass program, feel free to PM me.

There is nothing guaranteed about that, no.

 

However google did let the original google glass user swap for the current 2nd gen device, or optionally they could keep them if they wanted but not given an extra v2.

 

So while it is possible google may allow trade up to a retail version at some point in the future, its also just as possible they won't.

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now, with some bugfixes as usual but also some fun new options to test: Non-standalone 5G-NR cells can now display Site Notes. This feature works in the same manner as how neighbor cell notes are displayed, requiring a PCI and your device's location. This option is enabled by default. As is the case with neighbor cell notes, you cannot edit NSA site notes directly unless there is an NCI being reported (which I have never seen); it uses the previously recorded standalone log entries. Like neighbor notes, if a cell has been previously logged but there is no note, you will see the distance information only.   Logging cells that are not reporting a valid PLMN is now possible. This option is disabled by default, but if you enable it along with two other options (log sites with missing GCI/NCI and to log sites with missing TAC), you should begin logging most NSA 5G-NR cells. A PCI is needed at a minimum, which is not always reported depending on your device and network factors. ("Sites" will be renamed to "cells" on the Preferences menu in the next update.)   Users can enable an option to display LTE cells above 5G-NR cells in the app if they choose to do so. This option is disabled by default. Should help improve the readability of your screen if you have NSA 5G-NR cells constantly appearing/disappearing. Please give these options a try and let me know if you notice any issues.. thanks!
    • Not yet. We probably won't see one submitted until construction on the new building is substantially complete. 
    • Yes, that is where the site used to be. All the antennas were removed. I hope they add a new site soon. Have any permits been submitted for a new site?
    • Looks like there's a slightly taller building going up next door to where the decommissioned site used to be. Taking a look at StreetView, T-Mobile likely decommissioned the site because the east facing sector would blocked by the new building. If I had to guess, T-Mobile has already agreed to move to the roof of the new building and is just waiting for it to be completed to install the site there. What they should've done is just rearrange the sectors in the meantime but it seems like T-Mobile just bit the bullet and decommed the tower in the short term. — — — — — A permit was issued for a Sprint conversion at 150 Prospect Park West, finally filling in what is T-Mobile's largest coverage gap in Park Slope. Verizon is collocated on that building and AT&T has placed small cells along Prospect Park West to fill in coverage there while T-Mobile struggled using two sites, one at Grand Army Plaza at the far north and another at Bartel Pritchard Square to the far south.  
    • Yep, you can see the site was taken down between Aug 2022 and Apr 2023.
