Google Glass, Android Wear notifications can’t run simultaneously

Having a pair of Google Glass could be the coolest thing today for geeks. It’s probably the best wearable tech device right now but since it is a first release, the Glass has limited features. A recent update to the MyGlass app brought bug fixes and notifications can now be sent from the phone to show on the Google Glass display screen. While the latter is a helpful feature, it disabled notifications on an Android Wear device. This means you cannot use Android Wear and Glass for notifications at the same time.

Our answer to them would be this – the sort of people who do exactly this.

Now the FCC has finally given its thumbs up for the product, but the Nexus Player is still unavailable for pre-orders at this point.

Sony releases F2P Fat Princess: Piece of Cake on Android

Sony has just released its Fat Princess: Piece of Cake game for Android, a free-to-play match three game that you should be able to take to immediately.

There’s always that time when someone calls and you know you have to tell that person something important, but as we tend to do, we forget.
