I hope you aren't scared of heights because this entry is going to take my SLogging to a whole new level...
While getting my daily fix of tech news today I read an article on CNET that blew me away and finally made me realize just how powerful Google (the company) really is. The title of the article was, How Google Is Becoming an Extension of Your Mind. That article contained a KILLER video that is better than any reality TV you will ever see.
To appreciate the KILLER video, you first have to understand what Google+ Hangouts is, which you can do by watching the two video to the right. Essentially, Google+ Hangouts is video conferencing technology that is built into Google+. Think of it as Google's version of Skype.
Once you get your brain around Hangouts, then watch the three videos below, which talk about Google Glass, the tech giant's latest project, which is getting some serious buzz right now.
Once you understand what Google Hangouts and Google Glass are you can then fully appreciate the KILLER video below -- with the disclaimer that you should check your acrophobia at the door...

EXCERPT FROM CNET ARTICLE*
It's time to think of Google as much more than just a search engine, and that should both excite and spook you.
Search remains critical to the company's financial and technological future, but Google also is using the search business' cash to transform itself into something much broader than just a place to point your browser when asking for directions on the Internet.
What it's now becoming is an extension of your mind, an omnipresent digital assistant that figures out what you need and supplies it before you even realize you need it.
Think of Google diagnosing your daughter's illness early based on where she's been, how alert she is, and her skin's temperature, then driving your car to school to bring her home while you're at work. Or Google translating an incomprehensible emergency announcement while you're riding a train in foreign country. Or Google steering your investment portfolio away from a Ponzi scheme.
This one explains Google GLASS...
This is the KILLER video...
