Somewhere  in the world, around 10,000 people are wearing Google Glasses. And rumor has it that the company is aiming to release the glasses to the public near the middle of 2014. There’s much debate about how much the unit will cost, whether anyone will buy it, all the privacy issues it raises, and what sort of trail it may blaze for other wearable devices. A...
