McD's already has camera's that watch the registers, dining rooms, ect. You are already being recorded. McD's just want's to control those recordings, and prevent anything that could be potentially bad for PR or used in a lawsuit from showing up on youtube.

On topic, McDonald's has every right to ask people to not have Google Glasses on when they come into their facilities. It's just like some places asking you to not talk on the phone or film.

 

Fortunately or unfortunately depending on where you are, here in Canada AFAIK there is no surveillance of that type. I don't mind the technology and in-fact I'm excited at what this means for app developers but like I said before, you will need my permission to record me doing my work. If I'm walking down the street going somewhere going to do something then I don't mind that kind of invasion since I'm not doing anything wrong but walking down the street going to do something.

I already know I'm being recorded by the company and that's fine if that's their condition to pay my wages. Still it is their restaurant, their property, their service to the customer, if you don't agree with these conditions of service then don't support the company.

Indeed.

Anyone not living in some undocumented, rural, hillside village talking about their privacy and freedom seem unaware that it never existed the moment they were born in a hospital/went to school/drove a car/got a job/opened a bank account etc.

Banning this at mcdonalds, however, is pretty silly; what have they got that they don't want filmed.

Still, I understand banning at a movie theater. We're expected to turn our phones off and not bring anything to record with.

Now imagine someone DRIVING with one eye covered by a display screen!

This.

I know im probably in the minority on a tech forum but i dont think these things are a good idea at all.


*imagine being out shopping with your kids and a dodgy man is sat on a bench with his paper filming you and your children in HD so he can auto upload images to his shared pedo *** account ? Sensationalist? realistic?

* imagine being in the pub / club and having a few beers, someone spills your beer and is behaving like an arse in front of you and your mates and you end up in an unexpected and rare fight in self defense? its instantly on "someones" we don't know who,it could be ANYONE's facebook and the video capture as just like with real life editing portrays it to be your fault. Monday morning comes and your boss or a colleague has seen it and your in the poop maybe sacked.

* imagine your in a public urinal and some guy is snapping your snapper to send to all his friends? don't say that thought hasn't crossed your mind

* imagine your friend is walking down the street and he bro-touches your hand by mistake.. you say "fag" as a joke, its recorded and all of a sudden your a homophobe

* imagine talking about terrorism? any cultural / regional comments could be interpreted in any way.

* imagine having a private conversation with someone ( People don't always follow rules) and its being recorded, Anywhere, anyhow.

* No offense to those who have teenage girl friends here who can drive, but the amount of them at the moment texting whilst driving is ridiculous, even though thats illegal in my country and if you cause and accident it is upto a 5 year prison sentence for little miss prim. Yet still they do it, they ignore the law. So imagine a pop up from a friend when driving ? what are they going to be looking at when they cause you a serious back injury or worse and hit your stationary car?

* We all like women, its great to stare in admiration but aren't some people going to take this technology to ridiculous levels and stalk easier than ever before? its all about ease of access and quality + the rapid ability to share and store were not talking little crap spy cams here.



nerdy spy glasses geeks everywhere & when apple copies there will be middle aged roll neck jumper EYE-tards everywhere ? rolleyes.gif

Also, I love tech but there seems to be a trend that ANYONE that says ANYTHING negative constructive about new Technology, even if its just re-packaged and more accessible such as this is seem as some sort of backwards medieval and that there only intention is to block progression.

This tech could be used in a very limited and controlled way to help some people for good, but giving it to every person on the street from every walk of life with their variable moral compasses seems like a terrible idea.

This is so silly. Anyone that would actually want to go around secretively recording people can already do so. There's a bunch of glasses with tiny video cameras on them on amazon and eBay...

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.

Besides, I doubt they're banning the device itself. They're probably just going to ban wearing and using them in the store.
They can and will ask you to stop recording. In an extreme case, if you don't stop, they confiscate it.


They have no authority to do that, they can however ask you to leave.

Your absolutely correct. The a select few feel the desire to sit there and text while driving which is so obviously stupid (and these laws don't stop them). Even without cell phones, they are going to be the people that read the newspaper or put on makeup while driving, which if you ask me is far worse. As a result of their incompetence, they then get talking on phones while driving banned for everyone. I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm able to drive and talk at the same time without any issue. There was a time when I was talking on the phone and had to react quickly; I dropped the phone and reacted. Then once I pulled over, I got out of my car, found my phone under my seat, and continued on my way.

Seriously... Is common sense such a rare thing these days that we need laws telling us how to stay alive?

What's more, with these laws you're still allowed to look down to dial the number even if you have a hands free kit, it's absolute nonsense.
