DNP Editor's Letter 3D printing grows up

Another week with Google Glass and, as I grow more accustomed to having it in my life, I find myself struggling more and more to come up with reasons to wear the thing. I’m still very happy to stop on the street and give people a demo, but if I’m being honest, I don’t need that much attention from strangers in my life. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still very excited about the potential here, but it’s safe to say the novelty is running out.

Still, this week Glass did get a nice improvement. The XE5 update was released late Tuesday night and shipped with a series of small but important niceties, like notifications from Google+ and the ability to do a search from anywhere in the UI. Unfortunately, this update also changes things such that uploads will only occur from the headset when it’s plugged in and on WiFi. That’ll help battery life — at a somewhat unfortunate cost to wireless functionality.
