Design pioneer Diane von Furstenberg has no regrets.
The New York Times takes a lengthy look at what went wrong with Google Glass. A 12-page spread in Vogue, a 5,000-word piece in the New Yorker, and all the media hoopla attending designer Diane von Furstenberg’s introduction of Glass on the fashion catwalk could not disguise the fact that the product simply wasn’t ready for the consumer market, various sources tell the Times. As for Ms. von Furstenberg, she has no regrets. In an interview Tuesday, she said that Google Glass was revolutionary: "This was the first time that people talked about wearable technology. Technology moves on faster and faster, and Google Glass will always be part of history."
