Google looking for Glass Explorers

Google shows new ways to operate Glass and holds a contest for a chance to buy a $1,500 prototype; Yahoo wants to look more like your Facebook feed; and SwiftKey's app offers a new way to type with Flow.

Wednesday's CNET Update does a barrel roll:


Google wants you to fall in love with the idea of a computer on your face. It has released another promo video showing what Google Glass could do (even though it's not a real product yet), and launched a contest for a chance to buy a $1,500 prototype. But as Forbes points out, people are using the #ifihadglass hashtag contest to point out the drawbacks of Glass.

Today's tech news roundup also looks at the redesign of Yahoo's home page, and the updated SwiftKey app for Android.
