A report on 9to5google said the Google Glass Enterprise Edition (EE) has been tweaked to be more practical for the workplace."It folds like a regular pair of glasses, and because it’s first and foremost being built for the workplace, it has a more rugged build and appearance," it said. One major change is a robust hinge mechanism that lets the computer and battery modules fold down like a regular pair of glasses, it said. Also, the overall design of the computer side is built to withstand normal drops and bumps in "less-than-ideal workplace environments." Citing its sources, 9to5google said the device is more water-resistant, and is "built with fewer buttons and ports as to have fewer places for water and other material to seep in." "And, as to be expected from a device built for the workplace, Google has tweaked its visual aesthetic to better fit in a factory or a hospital than on a runway. It’s practical and industrial, with a focus on function over fashion," it said. But other than these, the EE does not look radically different from earlier iterations of Google Glass. On the other hand, the EE is rumored to have a larger prism display, an Intel Atom processor, improved battery life, and better heat management. Google is planning to distribute the device exclusively through its certified set of Glass for Work partners, 9to5google said.
The devices come with a built-in AI assistant, Google Assistant. The company demonstrated how the AI software can make a reservation for you right from the device and complete other tasks.
Pixel has a pretty sweet perk for photo fans, too: Users will get free unlimited storage of photos and videos -- something Apple would be wise to consider in the future. The devices, which are available for pre-sale starting on Tuesday, come in three colors: quite black, very silver and really blue.

We are really pleased with those performance gains and we hope that you’ll enjoy faster browsing with Microsoft Edge along with the many great features we have added over the last several builds."
If these are true, then it is the best thing to happen to the browser space. If anything it’s best for the browser ecosystem that Microsoft, otherwise known for Internet Explorer has spruced up its browser performance with a more efficient EdgeHTML engine than the dominating WebKit. We are sure this will boost further optimisation and innovation in other browsers.
