While the majority of gadgets are assembled overseas, wearable computing gadget Google Glass will be manufactured within the U.S, according to a Financial Times report.
Google Glass does many of the same things you do with your smartphone, such as snapping pictures, recording video, displaying augmented reality user interfaces (such as driving directions), and communicating with others. Despite not being released until late 2013, Google Glass is already a main topic of conversation among futurist hipsters who can' wait to spend $1,500 (or less) on ridiculous looking eyewear.

Understanding Cloud Services
February 27, 2013
“Cloud services,” “cloud computing,” “cloud storage,” and “in the cloud” are all terms used when talking about “the cloud.” Even some reading this article might find it challenging to provide a universal definition to describe cloud-based services.

As consumers look to familiarize themselves with cloud-based offerings; manufacturers, retailers, app developers and/or service providers will need to learn how to communicate best what “the cloud” is and its value proposition in order to both effectively advertise and as well as sell cloud services.
