'Project Glass' tops evening trends
Here's what people are talking about online in Canada, Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and around the world right now:
While not yet available for the market, Google says this stealth project has been under development at their X lab for two years.
The glasses will reportedly interact with what the wearer sees, acting as a smartphone, camera and navigation system.

Also trending this evening:
- National Tell A Lie Day was trending on Twitter for most of Wednesday afternoon and into the evening.
According to Hallmark's ultimate holiday site, this is an official (though questionably legitimate) holiday much like National Caramel Popcorn Day or Draw a Picture of a Bird Day, both taking place this weekend.
Some bloggers rattled off politically charged lists of lies leaders have told to mark the occasion, but top tweets on the subject were lighter in nature.
