Forget Embarrassment, I’d Wear Google’s AR Glasses

Forget Embarrassment, I’d Wear Google’s AR Glasses

I'm a geek, an early-adopter and a lover of science-fiction; I also have relatively little shame: of course I'm the ideal target audience for Google Glasses. If the rumors are to be believed, Google's wily engineers have used their "20-percent time" to cook up some Android-powered digital goggles, overlaying augmented reality data onto the real-world view.

2015 Audi A3 First Drive

2015 Audi A3 First Drive

No chances are being taken with the 2015 Audi A3. While the outgoing model never quite achieved the same cachet in the US as it did in Europe in five-door hatchback form, the new car targets the US from the outset with an A3 Sedan leading the charge. Starting just under $29,900 but promising Teutonic refinement - and a typically lengthy options list, including what may be the best infotainment system we’ve used so far - the A3 aims to follow in the footsteps of its well-received bigger siblings, not to mention return fire against other recent entrants in the premium C-segment niche. Read on for our first drive report.
