And today from our #FirstWorldProblems desk, comes the story of Cecilia Abadie, a California driver ticketed back in October for speeding and, secondarily, Driving While Glassed (DWG).
It seems Ms. Abadie was wearing her Google Glass when pulled over by a cop on a San Diego freeway for doing 80 in the 65 MPH zone. The cop, alert to the odd glasses on her nose, also cited her for violating, California Vehicle Code 27602, which clearly states it it illegal to drive “if a television receiver, a video monitor, or a television or video screen” can be seen by the driver while the car is moving.
She was back in court this week, having pleaded not guilty, to set a trial date for January.

You know what's not cool? Being Facebook and having to hear nearly every day how teens think you're not cool and are jumping instead to mobile messaging apps for instant communication and gratification.
We all know the story by now of mobile messaging app Snapchat's rise in popularity and its spurn of Facebook's buyout offer.
Now comes word from Global Web Index that, no, it's not Snapchat that is drawing teens from Facebook but, instead, the Chinese messaging app, WeChat, which the study suggests grew over 1000 percent in use in the first three quarters of 2013.
