this whole google glass thing was a bad idea from the start, i'm sure that there are a whole lot of you saying i'm way wrong , but i really don't think so.

if these things connect to the web they can be hacked,trolled, or whatever you want to call it. they will have gps as well as an ip address, now someone could connect to your glasses and look and record everything you look at. and it does not matter who, where, what and you wouldn't even know, now if your the kind of person who loves the drama dance, and you put your whole life story on facebook (including the last time you took a dump), then this won't bother you at all.

but if your the kind of person that doesn't care to do that and you don't want everything you do or say recorded by anyone for any reason, you google glass people are forcing everybody eles into this gigantic drama dance.

thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif it's a bad idea and it should be scrapped.

welcome to the freaking matrix

with that logic, smartphones and computers should be banned too.
we should just go back to stone age.

You can say it all you want, but we've been bathing ourselves in sub-visible light wavelength transmissions for more than 50 years. Please stop implying that non-ionizing radiation has the potential to cause cancer. You'd be dead from your brain boiling in your skull long before microwave radiation gave you cancer.

Do you know how easy it is to cover up or disable an LED?

I see lawsuits in the future. Specifically against any company that bans Google Glass but not smartphones, especially once the prescription Google Glass models come out. The moment somebody who is legally blind is prevented from entering a business due to their Google Glasses, it also becomes an ADA issue.

Everything Google Glass does can be done with a smart phone. Banning a device because of its form factor rather than its function is stupid, and in this case could be determined to be illegal.

It doesn't really become an ADA issue, so long as a private property requests it you do have to comply so long as you're there. Personally I do believe that there are privacy considerations to be had with something like google glass. Unlike a cellphone or other recording device, you can't necessarily tell if they're recording you or not simply because we look for someone hands to be raised up and pointed towards us with a device normally. If someone is just looking in your direction you can't tell. But if there is at least an led that blinks red or something to notify people that would help.

Personally I would complain that Google needs to implement some way to make it readily apparent that it is recording. Yes a lot of people say well it can be bypassed, so can anything else, but then it becomes a question of legality if you get caught doing it.

Private businesses are forced to have wheelchair ramps. How is banning a legally blind person's glasses not an ADA issue?

These same issues were brought up when cameras were first put on smart phones. Surreptitious recording with a smart phone is easy. You can keep most of the device on your pocket, revealing only the lens. With some practice, "shooting from the hip" can yield some pretty good video.

Again, you're banning a form, not a function. How does that make any sense?

lol why are people so scared of GG? If anything, I could just whip out my phone and have the same functionality as I would with GG... The logic of these individuals is beyond me..

Again, there has to be reasonable suspicion of you recording. Walking into a store with Google Glass is grounds for reasonable suspicion. Unless you want McDonalds to pull out your cellphone each time you walk up to the counter and make sure you're not recording?
