GOOGLE, and we had to read it twice, has suspended sales of Glass, those infamous goggles that a certain type of person has taken to wearing.
The less dramatic take on this is that Google has ceased to offer the Glass Explorer programme, through which it sold the specs to punters for $1,500.
This is not the end of Google Glass, just the beginning of the next stage, according to a post on Google+, naturally.
"It's hard to believe that Glass started as little more than a scuba mask attached to a laptop. We kept on it, and when it started to come together, we began the Glass Explorer Programme as a kind of 'open beta' to hear what people had to say," writes the firm.
"Explorers, we asked you to be pioneers, and you took what we started and went further than we ever could have dreamed.
"Glass was in its infancy, and you took those very first steps and taught us how to walk. Well, we still have some work to do, but now we're ready to put on our big kid shoes and learn how to run."
So that has all been fun, and Google said that wearables have exploded since it first approached the main space on your face, and it is to cease selling them for the time being.
This happens next week, and you will have to bide your time after that if you want a fresh pair.
This is because Glass is moving from the X Labs part of the Google machine to the main part. Google Glass will be back, in fresher versions, according to Google, but only when it is ready.
"January 19 will be the last day to get the Glass Explorer Edition," adds the post. "In the meantime, we're continuing to build for the future, and you'll start to see future versions of Glass when they're ready."
The suspension of sales should please at least 20 percent of survey responding Brits, and follows reports that both developers and consumers had lost interest in the face-worn wearable.
