Nice bus. Shame if something happened to it: Herald sports writer John Boyle, attending the Super Bowl’s media day in New Jersey, notes that reporters were shown a promotional video about New Jersey on their bus trip from New York.

Breaking Glass: Google is nearly ready to roll out Glass, a wearable computer that displays the Internet in front of an eye on frames that can be fitted with prescription lenses.
