The Onion slam dunks Google Glass:
Following the company’s announcement that it would discontinue public sales of the wearable technology, Google officials confirmed Monday that all unsold units of Google Glass would be donated to underprivileged assholes in Africa. “We are committed to positively impacting the lives of poverty-stricken smug pricks by distributing the surplus inventory of Google Glass to self-important fucks throughout sub-Saharan Africa,” a statement released by the company read in part, adding that the program will provide the optical head-mounted technology, as well as professional training sessions, to destitute communities of conceited dicks from Sierra Leone, to Somalia, to Botswana.
In actual news, Tony Fadell (created the Nest thermostat, was on the team that created the original iPod) will be in charge of Glass now. It will be interesting to see if he’s able to make lemonade out of that lemon.
