Google, inching ever closer to releasing Glass to the general public, said it will begin shipping early editions of the smartglasses to app developers this week. The Silicon Valley search engine giant sold the $1,500 glasses last year to those in attendance at its developer conference, and this week the company notified some buyers that the first units were finished and ready to be shipped. "Instead of waiting for all of the devices to be ready, we want to start delivering them to you now," Google said in its letter.

If Apple does use metallic glass in its next iPhone, you might not have to keep hiding the device from your toddler and clumsy cousin and actually hand it over to them with some confidence. That's because it takes a licking and keeps on ticking. Liquidmetal, or metallic glass, looks like glass but is far from fragile. It can resist bending, scratching, denting and shattering, according to the scientists responsible. We spoke with William Johnson and Marios Demetriou, the lead researchers on this material at Caltech, as Liquidmetal gets renewed attention following a report in Korean IT News that Apple is experimenting with it for upcoming devices.

It's a good thing Amare Stoudemire still had use of his right hand following the New York Knicks' loss to the Miami Heat on Monday. He needed it to tweet two apologies for reportedly punching a glass fire-extinguisher case at American Airlines Arena with his left hand out of frustration. "I am so mad at myself right now, I want to apologize to the fans and my team, not proud of my actions, headed home for a new start," Stoudemire posted on his Twitter account . Those actions left the New York forward with his arm in a sling, his hand heavily bandaged and his chances of playing in Game 3 of the playoff series -- and possibly more -- in serious jeopardy.

We met at the Santa Monica outpost of the Bodega wine bar. Though it was fairly dark inside, I recognized his face at the bar. I waved and walked toward him. As he stood up, his body did not match his face, or any of his online pictures. He was not the same guy surfing in the wetsuit, or wearing the tux, or looking all skinny with his bushy brown hair. He must have gained 50 pounds, maybe more. Beneath his beige button-down shirt I could see man boobs. "Shall we get a table?" he asked.

Drinkers the world over have been thrilled by the notion that resveratrol, a chemical found in red wine, might be some kind of anti-aging powerhouse. The supposed wonder substance can make perilously chubby lab rats live as long as their slim counterparts, protect them from cancers and reduce their risk of dying from a high-calorie diet. It can lengthen the life of certain fish while warding off brain decay and improving the creatures' swimming chops. Which may sound very alluring for those of us who'd like to think that sipping Pinot Noir while relaxing on a couch counts as doing something healthful.

Could a new glass make beer taste better? Two brewers on opposite sides of the United States have partnered to produce a glass they say will amplify and balance “even the hoppiest of IPAs.” Manufactured by German glassware company Spiegelau , the glass was designed with input from Delaware-based Dogfish Head Craft Brewery and Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., from Chico, Calif., and is available for $9.

A celebration following the Boston Bruins' 1-0 overtime win over the Washington Capitals on Thursday evening took a turn for the rowdy. As Bruins fans celebrated their team's dramatic win, they pushed out a pane of glass that encircles the ice and it fell on David Krejci's head. Each pane reportedly weighs about 125 pounds. Krejci remained on his hands and knees for a few moments before standing up. He did not participate in Friday's practice. "I got a little sore neck but other than that I am good and I'll play tomorrow," Krejci told reporters on Friday.

Wanting to avoid making users look ridiculous, Google is seeking the help of an e-commerce start-up that sells trendy glasses to design Glass, the Silicon Valley company's upcoming smartphone-like glasses.

News of the Warby Parker relationship to Glass comes a day after Google opened a competition to select the first people who can buy the smart-glasses.
