All in all
Ads:
Can be really annoying but can give you new ideas for presents i.e.

Google Search:
You can find
everything
on the internet for free!

Maps:
Free maps and navigation wherever you are, but very risky in traffic

Now:
While it makes your life a lot easier, it stores every habit of yours

Android:
All your data is being stored online, which can be a very big help, but also very insecure

Glass:
New ways to interact with technology and implement it into our everyday-lives, but very "Big-Brother-ish"

Lens:
Huge improvement of Lifestyle for diabetics!
