Comments Off on Warby Parker to Help Google Make “Glass” More Stylish

Google  is reportedly working with trendy eyeglass company  Warby Parker  to design “more-fashionable frames” for its  “Glass” headset , according to anonymous sources quoted by the  New York Times  this week. Warby Parker was founded two years ago, and the company made its mark by introducing a “one for one” business model (for every pair of frames purchased, Warby Parker donates another to someone in need). For its part, it looks like Google is aiming to make Glass a status accessory. The device made its  New York Fashion Week  debut in September when models wore colored versions at  Diane von Furstenberg’s runway show .

Comments Off on National 9/11 Museum Will Not Open in 2012 Due to Financial Dispute

Last year thousands of people visited the National 9/11 Memorial as it opened in New York City, however it turns out that the accompanying 9/11 Museum will not be opening anytime soon due to a financial dispute between the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Both organizations refuse to pay for the site’s infrastructure costs – which amount to hundreds of millions of dollars – and as a result the museum designed by Snohetta is expected to miss its projected opening date of September 11, 2012.
