Augmented Reality, the dream of every sci-fi obsessed technology fan. Being able to browse your social networks, send messages, talk to friends, use maps and broadcast your location to friends while walking down the street with a tiny eye movement would be truly wonderful.

This decision has been part of Apple’s disconnection from Google, where they also got rid of the YouTube app (a seemingly minor issue as the free YouTube app has rocketed to the top of the free app charts on the App Store).
