If all of your #ifihadglass attempts have been going unanswered, April 15 is your day ... to file taxes. And also get Glass. On Tuesday starting at 6 a.m. Pacific, you can sign up for the Glass Explorer Program if you're an adult in the United States.
Glass will be $1,500 plus tax like it's been all along, though now it will come with frames or a shade. The bad news: The number of spots is limited. And Google says, "To everyone outside the US... we know. Sorry :( We’re just not ready yet to bring Glass to other countries."
The promotion was originally leaked by the Verge and later confirmed by Google in (naturally) a post on Google Plus. The company says that is has been working on testing different methods for expanding the Glass program. It may view this as a sort of practice run to see how difficult it is to keep up with demand and to test the supply chain on a slightly larger scale.
If you've been chomping at the bit to get weird looks from passers-by, make sure you're ready to order on Tuesday. It may be the last time you order something from anywhere other than your face.
