Google Glass has definitely seen improvements ever since it was announced, although it did get into spots of trouble with certain folks from time to time. In fact, we do know that Google Glass will eventually support prescription glasses too, and this time around, we have PR firm Weber Shandwick rolling out an unofficial WordPress plugin for Google Glass, which means you can now publish content to just about any WordPress-hosted blog using but simple verbal commands.
Those who happen to own the Google Glass can now snap a photo or shoot a video, before speaking out your thoughts in a caption and uploading your entry. It is said that this is a painless and dumb-proof process, taking less than a minute to complete the task. If you have a whole lot more to say about a particular situation, then that is also possible, although a learning curve is involved here. You will first need to familiarize yourself with Google’s built-in voice-to-text functionality though.
Google Glass proves to be a rather compelling alternative when updating your WordPress account, since it does away with historical user interface barriers, allowing it to seamlessly offer access and visibility to content, add localized relevance to content to feed one’s display, as well as an opportunity to compose and share content right there and then.

How has your Android experience been so far over the years? I am quite sure that you have had your fair share of ups and downs with it, but as with a good marriage, things get better and better with each passing year. Google themselves certainly deserve a pat on the back for their efforts in bringing up this mobile operating system to mainstream consciousness, and this time around, Google has ensured that the action overflow button will always be on, never mind if there is a presence of a hardware menu button on your device – starting with Android 4.4 KitKat powered devices.
Here is a little bit of history to catch up on things. After all, if one is unable to remove physical navigation buttons because of different manufacturers around, why not remove the capacitive menu button instead? Google did formalize soft navigation buttons with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, where the “action overflow menu” happened to function as a substitute for the menu button. Ever since then, this action overflow button has not been as consistent as expected when it comes to Android apps, as it shows up on devices with soft navigation buttons, but not whenever it detects the presence of a hardware menu button. With an always on presence now in KitKat, life would be much better, no?
