Above, at 3:37 of a video on multiple subjects made two days after her previous video, Justine talks about Google Glass and their just-ended contest to give away 8,000 pairs of these, but there's a catch: http://youtu.be/xHEFzTm6xD0. There's no justice if Justine doesn't wind-up with a pair, because you know she'll use them, with viewers the winners.
I'd wanted to post the Google, iJustine and Joshua Toplosky videos last Saturday morning, a few hours after seeing them for the first time, but got distracted and wound-up doing some writing on the computer, cleaning around the house and listening to the "Nashville" soundtrack album.
In retrospect, I'm glad that I didn't post anything about it because within 48 hours, there was more news about Google Glass, courtesy of Google co-founder Sergey Brin's wife, Ann, who was spotted by a TMZ cameraman wearing a pair before heading into an Oscar party Sunday night.

Sergey Brin on the touchscreen: 'it's kind of emasculating'
By Russell Brandom on February 27, 2013 01:24 pm
My last post on Google Glass was September 11, 2012, that featured Sergey brin in a video -
titled, Google's Sergey Brin previewing new 'Google Glasses'; England U-21 goalkeeper Ben Amos wearing Google-cam while balls are kicked at him during practice. The mind reels at the possibilities of this!; Wait until iJustine gets a pair of these!; @iJustine
(Yeah, I know, I wrote Glasses instead of Glass.)
Google Glass - For someone like me, to see it, much less, in-person, is to suddenly find your head swimming in creative and practical ideas and finding yourself thinking and talking about why you want one, nay, need one.
Which is why at an Oscar party in LA that was doubtless full of affluent and famous people, Ann Brin had the one intangible that everyone else in the room wanted as soon as they saw it.
Now that's currency and how you shape influential opinion-makers -make them realize that you have something that they don't have and, for all their money and clout, can't get.
Boom goes the technolgy dynamite!
Just imagine what hard-working investigative reporters -or sleuthy bloggers!- or corruption-fighting investigators could do with this technology, without a tell-tale cameraman trailing them to give away the surprise to suspected crooked/sleazy targets of scrutiny....
To say nothing of watching a sport or special event LIVE in-person, and being able to effortlessly record or send LIVE the whole scene around you, whenever you want.
Especially doing so at your child or grandchild's ballgame or swim meet or play or at a wedding or...yes, a government meeting about a controversial subject that is sent LIVE back to another location, whether a TV studio or newsroom or a whole self-selecting network of friends or interested people who want to see what's REALLY going on.
I still want a jet pack, but until then, this will do nicely!
