Using Glass as a journalism tool

Written by on January 26, 2014 in Gadgets and Gear with 0 Comments

I’ve been using Glass as a reporting tool on my RV Travel blog (roadtreking.com), live blogging and tweeting as I drove an RV into the arctic vortex in the snow covered North.

All those photos and tweets and Google + videos and updates stay on Glass and so clutter up the interface that trying to use it for other functions in the field is extremely cumbersome. I

know I am far from the only one complaining of this but I think my GoPro camera is the better choice and Glass, at this point in its development, is just a clever “some day” device that will be much more usable as a journalism tool in a future version.
