This week we saw two new Google rumors hit the scene. First up is the Google HUD glasses that are rumored to combine augmented reality with sunglasses. The other is a Google Home Entertainment System that will be built on the Android@Home ecosystem.
Google Voice Update
Google updated their Google Voice app for Android phones and tablets. Android devices with Ice Cream Sandwich and above are able to do “Click-To-Call” which makes it easy to use multiple Google Voice numbers from any device.

The latest phone in the Verizon Droid line is now available. The Droid 4 features a full 5 row keyboard along with a super thin design.
Google Paying Users For Private Data
From Google: As a panelist, you’ll add a browser extension that will share with Google the sites you visit and how you use them. What we learn from you, and others like you, will help us improve Google products and services and make a better online experience for everyone.
