Schmidt: Google Glass dream isn't shattered just yet

Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) isn't giving up on Google Glass, its high-tech eyeglasses, according to Chairman Eric Schmidt. In mid-January, Google announced it was ending its Glass "Explorer" program, which it launched in April 2013 to allow software developers to buy pre-production versions of Google Glass for $1,500 for testing. The program initially launched in the U.S. and was extended to the UK in mid-2014. But Schmidt said that despite the changes, the company is not abandoning Glass and that Fadell is working to "to make it ready for users."
