Editor’s Note:  Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG)

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. Bublitz, from the coding company IcedDev, used a JavaScript code to turn Google Glass into a basic control system for a quadcopter drone, thus allowing him to control the device by moving his head.

Google updates Play policies to ban apps and ads modifying devices, require games use its in-app billing service (The next Web)
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. Developers have been given 30 days of receiving the email to comply; if they don’t apps discovered to be in violation could be removed from Google Play.

Google buys virtual imaging patents from Foxconn (Yahoo News)
Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) has bought virtual imaging patents from Taiwanese supplier Foxconn that could be used in its interactive “Google Glass” devices, according to a document acquired by AFP on Saturday. No details were released on the amount of the transaction. The patents relate to a technology that permits virtual images to be super-imposed over real ones, according to media reports.

Best Buy May Sell Google Glass in 2014 (Tom’s Hardware)
A post by Robert Scoble over on Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Plus suggests that Best Buy will be one of the retailers carrying Google Glass next year. An unnamed source said that Google plans to rent 6,000 square feet inside every Best Buy store. What that means for Google’s supposed Glass-specific shops is unknown that this point. 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.
