By the way, Google is said to be releasing internet eyeglasses this year called "Head Up Display" (HUD).  Glasses what can feed you information like internet, photos, videos, etc., while you view the real world, without carrying a separate i-pad of smart phone.  Just shows how fast technology is moving.
