Radiation weaker than UV has never been empirically shown to cause cancer. Her MD does not trump thousands of peer reviewed papers by geneticists, biochemists, etc. that show absolutely no link.

Yeah OK fair enough, but there's nothing more Google can do to alert people that you're filming.

That aside, why do you care if someone has a video of you in McDonalds? Or anywhere else the public can go? If someone's motivated enough to draw on their currently $1500 headwear they're welcome to a video of me eating my burger and fries.

Privacy has both State and Federal regulations. You can do a lot of things publicly, such as film a McDonalds from the public road. But there is a reasonable expectation of privacy within the McDonalds itself, as it is private property. As such you must follow their wishes. The same regulations protect your home as well, as it can be considered stalking, which does have legal repercussions, to film someone inside their home from within another private location, but it is ok to film someone in their home from the public street. It might be rude but if they leave their window open there is not any legal repercussions.

If you film someone within a private location that is not owned by you, you have to get approval and release papers. You can film all day long to whatever audience you want if you are in a public location.

So it isn't about you eating your burger, it is about your privacy in general, something we do need to protect.

Are you seriously trying to compare a UV light that is 3 feet away to a microwave WiFi signal of 1 watt that is IN the soft tissue of your head, less than 1 inch from your brain?

REALLY?


[Edit]

Either way, I like what McDonald's has done. To hell with Google Glass wearers. If they want to wear that thing, they can do so in PUBLIC and their own home. If a business doesn't want to have their privacy invaded or that of their customers, I applaud them. I personally will tell anyone entering my house or in my department at work to take them off or leave, and not think twice about it.

As for the law to not use them while driving...I don't know how police officers would be able to tell. Especially since they rarely catch idiots texting while driving.

At least it wouldn't be so bad because its like having a GPS. The cars in front of you arent completely out of your vision. And with the talking to your Google Glass it might be even better than texting.


this comment almost exactly the same was made on several forums on the topic of the glasses. its flawed. most people could see the difference between one mans secret ambition to record an event illegally with a cheap low quality spy camera in some fairly ugly frames VS 6 Billion people, permanently connected to the web via their eyes, instant upload and formatting in HD for the 'lol'

destroy someones life for the 'lol' on facebook or youtube great idea thumb.gif



people shouldn't walk so blindly into these things without considering the ramifications, google arent your friends you know? Were not talking tacky cheap spy cameras, were talking eventual integration with perscription glasses where by the owner themselves don't know that they are 'hacked' and its not google that are staring through your eyes in your own home its the NSA ( perfectly possible right now and it all goes into their big data center in UTAH) this is a friendly way of removing that last shred of privacy

the human right violation comes from when your being recorded in a restaurant, at the bar, in your car, through your home windows, over the garden fence "AND" being JUDGED globally and segmented socially as a person type, because thats what people do... welcome to humanity. this just gives people so many more reasons to be d1ck5 about things
it doesn't make a difference with this versus a regular smartphone. Anyone can discretely take videos or pictures of people without anybody noticing. How do you think we get the funny videos you see on the Internet? If people aren't paying enough attention to look out for people with smartphones out and taking videos, then this will be no different.

I looked through most of this thread and I didn't see anything special to respond too. Just more discussion repeating what I said basically. I guess you guys are coming to the same conclusion as me?

And the NSA hacking into our smartphones and google glass is silly. They already have street cameras for that. Why would google, a company protecting their consumer's privacy for their own economic reasons ever allow that?

You obviously didn't read any of that. The thread was about BLUE light in the first place, not UV. Not sure where you're pulling that from.

In 2007 a task group of scientific experts convened by the World Health Organization (WHO) acknowledged the IARC categorization but found that the laboratory studies and other research results did not support the association.

The balance of epidemiologic evidence indicates that mobile phone use of less than 10 years does not pose any increased risk of brain tumour or acoustic neuroma. For long-term use, data are sparse, and the following conclusions are therefore uncertain and tentative.

The results of these epidemiological investigations have been largely consistent and reassuring, with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the US National Cancer Institute concluding that there is no conclusive or consistent evidence that nonionizing radiation emitted by cell phones is associated with cancer risk

(This is an excellent review. I watched your videos, so I ask that you read through this.)

Because of weaknesses, current evidence does not suggest that living near broadcast towers would lead to an increased risk of cancer.

This one actually directly refutes the second video from your second link, as it shows the cancer cluster was an isolated anomaly that only persisted for a 2 year period. Cancer rates returned to expected levels after that. RF output did not change, so clearly there was no causal link.
Quote:
Overall, despite some provocative findings, due to the lack of consistency among cancer subtypes and the methodological weaknesses of many of the positive studies, the occupational epidemiology literature does not provide support for a link between RFR and cancer.
Quote:
All of these studies concluded that RFR is not harmful below levels that produce thermal effects.

I personally will NOT use the Google glass. Why should I use them? I hate having anything on my eyes. I don't wear glasses and I refuse to wear the Google glass as well.

Besides, it will automatically make you look like a pervert after everyone finds out that it's that easy to record people.

Hi
Just had to jump in here, there are already "hackers" building prototype displays that go IN your eye(contact). Not very advanced yet but this is just a guy at home ( a really smart guy OK) saying that the Tech won't happen is just deluded. Imagine what DARPA has.

Correct, but it will take courts to affirm that. Legislators are only concerned with keeping companies happy.
