The #ifihadglass hashtag you might have seen trending this afternoon was a marketing effort by Google to promote its upcoming release of the Internet-enabled Google Glass eyeglasses (the ones Matt Drudge warned you about). Some who tweet what they’d do with the glasses will be chosen to receive a pair early. (They still have to pay the $1,500 price tag, though.)

New demo movies give an idea of what the glasses can do, but are they powerful enough to make Piers Morgan see straight? Is this a more realistic goal than the manned moon base?

Gingrich really wants in on Google Glass. He has a backup plan if Google doesn’t go for the Piers Morgan thing (which it should).
