Unofficial WordPress App Released for Google Glass

Not too many people own Google Glass just yet, but the number is growing thanks to an open invite request signup page. And alongside the greater adoption, comes a greater number of cool things you can do with Glass.

We recently covered the release of the GDK, which helps developers create better apps for Glass than what was possible with the cloud-based Mirror API. While the GDK release enables a new class of more immersive local apps, that’s not to say that useful and innovative apps can’t be built with Mirror API.

Now thanks to an unofficial WordPress app by PR firm Webber Shandwick, you can post to any WordPress blog directly from Glass. The app naturally has a few limitations, and chief among them is the need for voice dictation for text entry. While functional, we can’t imagine too many people posting long essays #throughglass. In addition to text, users can also attach photos and videos into their blog posts. 

To get started, head over to the installation page for full instructions. Installation is a bit tedious, as it has you install a WordPress plugin, set up the Mirror API (if you haven’t already), and more. Luckily, there are plenty of screenshots to guide you along the way. Developers looking to learn how it was done should head over to the project’s GitHub.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
