Introducing CNN iReport + Google Glass

Here's some cool news: We launched a new feature that invites you to share photos and videos with CNN directly from Google Glass. Yep, iReport is part of the wearable technology trend and we're pretty excited about it.


iReport has led the way with citizen journalism for years, and this is no exception. CNN is the first major news network to allow its audience to contribute stories directly via Google Glass.


If you're part of the Glass Explorer program, we hope you'll test out the iReport functionality. You never know when you'll spot breaking news, and it's a simple, fast way to share the images and videos you capture with your Glass.


To get started, you will need to authorize CNN to send notifications to your Glass. Once that's completed, you can manage your settings, like linking up your iReport profile. "CNN iReport" will then appear as sharing option for your photos and videos.


If you're a Glass Explorer, give it a try! We can't wait to see what kinds of stories you'll share.

I'm in - this should be fun. I've witnessed a lot of interesting things with Glass, and sometimes they are even newsworthy.


Look forward to seeing the first one that breaks...

hello folks, i have been trying to find a page to write you folks. i am not that computer savvy. i am a veteran that has been recently affected by the big VA scandal. approximately  a month ago i went to my closet VA hospital and that was in East Orange, New Jersey. Ive been coming to this hospital for the past 20 years. in the past i was always treated with great care it made me feel proud to be a veteran. I had an emergency with my tooth, the whole left side of my face was swollen. you could clear see that something was wrong with my teeth. When i went to the VA hospital for this pain i figured that i would get the great care that i was given in the past but things changes this time. upon trying to check myself in the lady at the front desk asked me for my info. and i was happy to give it. when she ran my info she told me that i am in the system but as a civilian not as a veteran. i tried to explain to her that i was here in the past as a vet but she said " no, i can't give you an appointment, i can't even admit you because you are not a vet". But i am. I couldn't believe it. she told me that she couldn't give me an appointment ever. A couple days later i called the VA hotline and the lady i spoke to could not believe that that lady did that to me because i am in the system as a disabled veteran. all the lady at the front desk had to do was point to the emergency room and i would've been taken care of. what i am trying to get at is that the New Jersey VA hospitals have some dirty laundry that needs to be checked out.

The Canadian support this holocaust and do legally because the constitutions make law less victims.

Hello there Katie! ... I have been out of the pocket for a while as I recently returned from an extended Leave of Absence.  The good news is as I start to get back into the swing of using Glass for iReports is that I will be covering the #Orion First Test Flight Launch Mars Mission at Kennedy Space Center in FL in December as part of the #NASASocial Team.  As this is a historic milestone in the NASA Space Program I feel some iReports are in order shot #throughglass.  I will be reaching out to you over the next couple weeks to do some preliminary device testing as I finish up my communication plan.  You can reach me here or on Google+ at
