Some Google (GOOG +0.4%) news: 1) In a rare move, Google has sold European deals site DailyDeal back to its founders, presumably for much less than the $114M Google paid for it in 2011. As Groupon (GRPN) can vouch, the European daily deals market had a very rough 2012. 2) Google Glass (previous) will arrive by year's end and "cost less than $1,500," the company tells The Verge. Joshua Topolsky has joined David Pogue in offering a positive review, while granting the hardware took some getting used to. "The more I used Glass the more it made sense to me; the more I wanted it."
