Google Inc announced on Thursday a half dozen apps specially designed to work on its Glass devices. News network CNN, fashion magazine Elle, as well as online apps Tumblr and Evernote were among the half dozen new apps for Glass unveiled during Google annual developer conference in San Francisco.Google Glass is a stamp sized electronic screen mounted on the left side of a pair of eyeglass frames which can record video, access email and messages and retrieve information from the Web.Google began distributing the devices last month to a limited number of developers, but it has yet to specify when a version will be available for consumers or at what price.The futuristic looking devices have been a common sight at the Google conference this week, with many of the attendees and staffers wearing Glass. But Google executives gave Glass short shrift during the more than three hour keynote talks on Wednesday, barely mentioning Glass among the litany of new products and services discussed on stage.Developers at eBay Inc are also working on potential applications for the Glass project, opening up the possibility that shopping and broader commercial activities might be conducted through the wearable technology.Inc is participating in the beta of Google Glass and we are exploring the various use case scenarios, said eBay spokeswoman Amanda Miller.EBay Innovation and New Ventures group, run by former eBay mobile executive Steve Yankovich, is taking part in the Google Glass trial program, she added.EBay online marketplace has been revitalized in recent years by the success of apps the company developed early for Apple Inc iPhone, the first mobile computing platform to really take off commercially.EBay wants to make sure that, if Google Glass becomes the next big mobile platform, its apps will be on there early too.Some of eBay existing mobile apps already let shoppers point smart phone cameras at products to check online prices and buy related items.

However, if you’re going in for an arranged marriage, then it’s all about the compatibility of everything else. Matrimonial ads are like window shopping, when you discern whether an outfit enhances your personality, blends into your environment, and is within your budget. The only difference is that in this case it’s two sided and you also get a say in whether it’s appealing to you to be with that person.
