Lifehacker has an article on the creative uses for Google Alerts that you should read if it is your job to protect your brand for your business, school, or your own personal brand.

    Don't try to sell your Google glasses! 😉 “The oppressive Google Glass terms state that: “…you may not resell, loan, transfer, or give your device to any other person.
