Google's Glass Explorer program is once again open to anyone with a web browser and $1,500. After last week's "one-day" sale event, Google's product page showed all models of Glass as sold out. Google has apparently restocked all colors and frame models, although they have not made an announcement regarding Glass sales without an Explorer invite. It should be noted that I did not complete a sales transaction, and this could simply be a mistake on Google's part. Update: Google's sale page once again lists all Glass models as sold out. Sorry!
New savers face a lot of complex decisions all at once. Even if you know the choices in your 401(k) -- this fund buys stocks, this one bonds -- you have to decide how much risk to carry. You may worry about what would happen if you make a mistake. The options can be paralyzing. Fortunately, investment choices don't matter much yet.

And – how shall we politely say this? – he looks slightly less clown-like.
