Fubini: Headline: HACXZ UR GLASS

Article: "Hack" requires physical access

Here's a clue for all you reporters out there- If someone gets physical access to your computer, they can literally do anything to it. This is like saying I can "hack" your car if you let me get inside and fiddle with all the knobs, or saying I can "hack" your smartphone if I pick it up change all the settings by hand.

Here's the real story:  http://www.saurik.com/id/16

TL;DR - you can unlock the bootloader and load your own kernel, just like every other Android device in existence.


Hack just means edit something in a way the creator didn't intend.  It has no specification on distance from said object or methods used.  Now if they said 'remotely exploit', I'd be right there with you.

ZeroCorpse: The Italian Sasquatch: *sigh*  I wish people would quit writing these ridiculous scare tactic articles about this product.  There are all unfinished, in beta, developer units.  They're not ready for the market.  They don't have all the final touches and security that the ones we'll actually be able to buy are going to have.  Until then, every one of these style articles is just a way to get page hits.  It's sad that a new technology isn't even allowed to be considered without people freaking out over things like this.  

I'm honestly looking forward to owning a pair next year when they're available to the public.

And I'm honestly looking forward to avoiding you when I see you on the street, at work, or anywhere else while you're wearing these privacy-invading recording devices.

Google Glass wearers will essentially be walking around with their cell phone camera always on and always pointed at other people. F♥ck that. I'm avoiding people with these things on like they're infected with bird flu.

Frankly, it's my hope that humanity has enough dignity left to ostracize anyone wearing these invasive things in public, and rightfully disallow them in their homes, businesses, and public gathering places.

I'm a gadget guy, but everyone wearing a spy-cam on their face? HELL NO.


They aren't always on. That's the thing. And sorry, but you like most people are no interesting enough for me to want to waste battery life on anyway. That's not an insult, it's just truth. Most people are not interesting enough to film/take pictures of. And if I wanted to do that, I could do it now. There's no shutter sound on my phone, or indication light that it's recording. Plus I wouldn't even need the phone, button cams have been commercially available for years, and can be hidden in clothing, bags, etc. So if someone really wanted to invade your privacy, they'd have no problem whatsoever doing it, and you'd never even know.

At least with Glass, you know someone has a camera, but again, the thought that everyone is buying them just to film boring strangers is ridiculous and hyperbolic.
