“Google and VSP, the nation’s biggest optical health insurance provider, have struck a deal to offer subsidized frames and prescription lenses for Google Glass, the Internet-connected eyewear. The announcement could take wearable devices, which tech analysts say are the next wave of computing, out of the realm of science fiction and into the mainstream by making them more affordable and giving them a medical stamp of approval. And it opens the door to a new level of cooperation between the health care and consumer electronics industries, which could lead to a world in which people wear or even ingest computers.” Von Claire Cain Miller > Weiter bei The New York Times

“For as long as I can remember, the release of a new version of Windows represents an opportunity for the media to opine on the future of Microsoft. The company will either thrive or vanish into irrelevance based on this latest iteration of Windows. Such reasoning tends to look silly in hindsight. After all, Microsoft minted plenty of money during the dismal Vista days and minted plenty of money during the well-received Windows 7 era.” Von Ashlee Vance > Weiter bei Bloomberg Businessweek
