In traditional Jewish weddings, it’s customary for the groom to break a glass – it is a symbol of mourning the destruction of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, but some believe that if the groom breaks the glass on his first try it’s also a sign of good luck.
It seems that whenever a technological breakthrough occurs, people will always try to apply it for sex. The more we change, the more we stay the same.
By they way, last time I checked, “Google Glass Moobs dot com” was still up for grabs… Just throwing it out there.

The Rise of Pinterest
Pinterest is growing fast – REAL fast. Last month it broke a record and became the fastest independent site to hit 10 million monthly uniques in the U.S. While Facebook and Google are battling for social-world domination, Pinterest is recruiting more and more users by the day. I personally get a notification about a new friend signing up or following me almost on a daily basis. The best part – people seem to enjoy it much more than, say, Google Plus, which launched with high expectations but for now doesn’t live up to its promise. Unlike GPlus, Pinterest is not another Facebook imitation, as it brings a different sort of experience and value to its members. I won’t give you a full review of its features here but instead I’ll let you do your own research. In the meanwhile, let’s sit back and enjoy watching Google and Facebook battle like the two dinosaurs they are.
