Samsung filing hints that smart glasses might still be coming

  Samsung filing hints that smart glasses might still be coming For years, there have been rumors that Samsung might be making smart glasses. The first hint of Samsung developing some sort of Google Glass-style wearable was back in 2013, with a design patent for a pair of “sports glasses.” Then, in 2014, a report from the Korea Times cited unnamed Samsung officials who said Samsung was indeed making its version of Google Glass, tentatively called Galaxy Glass. The glasses never surfaced, and talk about such a product slowed to a halt. This new trademark application is the first indication since 2014 that Samsung is still interested in and pursuing its own brand of smart glasses.

Gillis estimates the map has about 2,000 pieces of blue, white and green sea glass, which he has been collecting for years.

"There's a fair amount of sea glass down here and my brother in law ... he gave me a lot of sea glass," Gillis said.

Eagles-Patriots draws smallest Super Bowl TV audience in 9 years

  Eagles-Patriots draws smallest Super Bowl TV audience in 9 years The Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots played the highest-scoring game in Super Bowl history, but the offensive clinic didn't translate into higher viewership. In fact, Sunday's contest drew the lowest television rating for a Super Bowl since the Pittsburgh Steelers and Arizona Cardinals clashed nine years ago, according to Nielsen, via ESPN's Darren Rovell. The game was watched by an average of 103.4 million viewers, down from the 111.3 million who watched the Patriots defeat the Atlanta Falcons last year.

Natural, authentic, real sea glass can be found around the world on beaches along oceans or large lakes where-ever man has been and left behind his trash. Time, sand and surf are the ingredients needed to create worn, flawless natural seaglass and the Monterey Bay Sanctuary provides just that.

Glass village for the IWK

He said he got the idea about a year ago from someone on Facebook who had created a smaller version. Gillis said he decided to make his own version this winter.

The map will become a part of Gillis's collection of glass creations, including his village made out of glass bottles , which helps raise funds for the IWK.

Gillis said he's close to raising $30,000 for the hospital, and plans to expand his village even further this year.
