I just received the glass yesterday. After fully charge the glass and turn it on, it displays the “Glass” logo then keeps on “main stopped unexpectedly” -> “voice stopped unexpectedly” -> “camera stopped unexpectedly”. What’s wrong with it? The seller told me it is a common problem. (boot looop?) After a hard-reset, it still does not function.
call 1-800-Glass-XE for support

Software Version: XE16.11

Talked to 1-800-Glass-XE. The issue is because the OS (XE16.11) is not updated. In order to to push the updates, GG needs to be reconnected to Wi-Fi. Easiest way is if GG “remembers” previous settings. In this case, any phone or tablet that GG has been connected before will do. Battery must be charged at least 50% (at least an hour).
GG can take the updated also directly from Wifi, but the SCSU WiFi does NOT take devices like Google Glass yet.
If updates cannot be pushed to Google Glass, then the “owner” of the device has to talk to Google for replacement.

“Use technology to nudge students away from looking for confirmation for what they already know. Instead, challenge them — encourage risk and confusion that can’t be solved with a few clicks. Find learning technologies that identify and push against a student’s cognitive gap, that space between what a student knows and doesn’t know.

Why Online Brandjackers Plague the Travel Industry
The online hotel booking business is a ripe target for “brandjacking,” but this type of commandeering is of a different nature than we have seen in previous studies. More than 580 million visits from highly-qualified travelers are siphoned away from the hotel brands’ online bookings sites to those of channel and marketing partners – or competitors – who reach customers first through paid search advertising and other online marketing tactics.
