Guy Hacks Google Glass to Steer Drone (Mashable)
Outfitted with Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Glass, Blaine Bublitz controls a drone softly floating in the air before him with just a slight tilt of the head.

Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) today sent an email to third-party Android developers regarding a significant change to its Google Play Developer Program Policies. The changes affect both apps and the advertising practices that many apps use. The company explained that all apps and updates to apps published from here on out are “immediately subject” to the latest version of the Program Policy.

Last we heard, Glass needs to be tailored fit for each individual, hence the need for one-on-one Glass-focused shops.

5 things you should know about Google’s cloud platform (Gigaom)
Funny thing: On last week’s Structure Show podcast, North Bridge Venture Partners’ Paul Santinelli talked about the biggest threats to Amazon Web Services and didn’t mention Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) (or Microsoft, some listeners have pointed out) once. Time will tell whether that was oversight or wisdom, but based on this week’s Structure Show guest, I’m guessing Google thinks it’s the former.
