TC Roundup: Google Glass aims to entice travellers with new TripIt, Foursquare and OpenTable integrations; BlackBerry opens its OS to mobile device management companies

Google Glass aims to entice travellers with new TripIt, Foursquare and OpenTable integrations: A day after Google announced that it will sell Google Glass to anyone in the United States, the company is unveiling some new "Glassware" (basically, Google Glass apps) that's supposed to be particularly useful for travelers. This isn't the first travel-related Glassware. The company announced Word Lens for Glass last fall, so if you saw a sign written a language that you didn't understand, Word Lens could superimpose the translated text, as if you were reading a sign in your native language. Plus, the new Glassware isn't only useful when you're travelling — you might just want to find a restaurant near your house. (Techcrunch)
