...glasses market currently dominated by Google
I don't think dominate is the word you're looking for here. Google is in that space. Period. They've got no foothold. In fact, I'd say their price point has sent people looking the other way. Last I read, development had been non-existent for Google Glass.

Interesting article about some patents that Apple got approved yesterday. Looks like Apple wants into the glasses market currently dominated by Google. And to think I was considering spending part of my wife's inheritance on a pair of GoogleGlass this spring. Now I may need to hold out.

Don't hold out, this is something that may never happen. The next few years will be the Apple watch era followed perhaps by the "Apple glass" era (if this pans out) so we are realistically a few years away from maybe seeing this.

I think I read the same article.
