Did you miss out on the early sign-up for Google Glass? You’re in luck because BorrowLenses.com has you covered! Google is keeping these special specs super exclusive but we’re not.! Google Glass takes pictures and video through voice commands and comes equipped with GPS, WiFi, and Bluetooth on an Android OS that is pairable with iPhones. We tried out Google Glass back in 2012 during the G+ Photographer’s Conference in San Francisco and now you can rent a pair.

We have large and vocal communities on a variety of social networking sites, including Facebook, Twitter, G+, Instagram, and Pinterest. We love them all! Open and honest discussion, as well as jokes, are fully welcomed. However, sometimes when discussions get heated they also get personal. We want to keep our pages “PG” rated so as to reduce any chances of someone feeling alienated by the comments on our content. This means that every once in awhile we have to parent the responses to our posts. The following types of comments might get deleted/hidden/banned:
We do our best to keep these kinds of comments off our social sites but sometimes we miss them. You are always welcome to contact us directly if you see something suspicious.
