Get Ready For Brand New Google Glass
 

Get ready for the rebirth of Google Glass. Details were recently uncovered that indicate Google is working on an upgraded version. However not aimed at the general consumer, but at the enterprise market.

According to 9to5google, this upcoming edition will pack a larger display prism, Intel Atom CPU and the ability to connect an external battery pack — all upgrades critical for enterprise users.

This model, if real, would be sold to companies looking to equip their workforce with smarter technology. Instead of receiving tweets, these users would get information related to their job. Think warehouse workers. With this version of Google Glass, these works would be able to receive and process orders quicker.

Reportedly the new version of Google Glass also sports improved battery life, partly because of the Intel Atom CPU. The specific clock speed is unknown, but this tiny SoC has proven itself by powering most Android Wear devices. The inclusion of an optional battery pack states Google is aiming this device at industries looking for constant all-day use.

This isn’t the first time an Enterprise-focused Google Glass was uncovered. The WSJ reported in late 2014 that Google was retooling Glass for such a use case and would release the model in 2015.

Apogee Announces Proposed Share Consolidation
June 14, 2015
0
 

Apogee Silver Ltd. announces a proposed consolidation of its common shares as approved by shareholders at its annual and special meeting held June 17, 2014 (the “Meeting”). At the Meeting shareholders approved a special resolution to amend the articles of incorporation of the Company to consolidate its issued and outstanding common shares (the “Common Shares”) on the basis of one (1) post-consolidated Common Share for up to a maximum of one hundred (100) pre-consolidated Common Shares, at the discretion of the Board for a period of one year following the Meeting. Upon review and approval of the Board of Directors, the Company proposes that it consolidates its Common Shares such that one (1) new post-consolidated Common Share would be issued for every sixty-five (65) Common Shares outstanding on the effective date of the consolidation, or such lower number as may be required to obtain approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Apogee currently has 450,816,059 Common Shares outstanding. Following the completion of the share consolidation on a sixty-five to one basis, Apogee would have approximately 6,935,631 Common Shares issued and outstanding. The change in the number of issued and outstanding common shares that would result from the share consolidation would not materially affect any shareholder’s percentage ownership in Apogee, although such ownership would be represented by a smaller number of common shares.

The proposed share consolidation is subject to the approvalof the TSX Venture Exchange.
