2) The FCC send out rather hefty fines to people who use jammers.

Totally serious. You can be filmed or photographed at any time with little to no warning by virtually anyone with a cellphone, and smartphones support very high resolution recording. This is in addition to you being filmed by private security cameras in pretty much any public place.

We've had widespread use of security cameras since the 80's, cell phones that can take pictures since the 90's, and lots of smartphones with HD recording since the 2000's. I'm not sure how Glass is materially different from all those technologies.

More of something that shouldn't be? I mean, you have few rights when it comes to privacy when in a public place, but this is a company that owns every bit of data for a vast majority of people, has been caught using it's Street View cars to tap WIFI information in residences, and sells us at every turn. Can they also be trusted not to follow your every step every day now that they have the technology to do so?

I'm holding out for a pair of Zeiss-Ikons, myself.  Pan my gaze around really slow and deliberate, let all the real cowboys know I'm recording sim, because I'm not just another poser roaming the Strip in cheap Korean eyes that'll be throwing off neoplasms in a few years.

I envision something like somebody having a conversation with an unwitting dupe, and images are being posted live online as the conversation occurs.  Like, a situation where somebody pretends to ask someone for a date, kind of the "Dinner for Schmucks" thing.  Eventually, you'll also have a way to add taglines on automatically.  So you can make a sarcastic running joke out of somebody, in real-time ("ZOMG look at her face, she fell for it!"), and even as it's happening, their phone starts dinging with the news.  Later they can hang themselves in mortal shame.  Major yuks.

You can't do that with a cellphone.

As I said, not that there is much left in the way of decency and manners, but this will be even worse.  To have a conversation with someone, you have to implicitly sign off on this kind of crap.  Yet more, "It's foolish to imagine that there is any privacy left anywhere" or "if you're not doing anything wrong, what do you have to worry about."

You can do that today for far less than the cost of the Glass through hidden microphones and cameras. Especially if you allow for a second person to produce the video, as your example seems to imply.

I still maintain that you haven't had any privacy in public since the 90's, at the very latest. In my mind, there are two different situations here- a deliberate attempt to record a specific person (or area), and more spontaneous capture.

If you set out to discreetly record someone, this is something you have been able to do for decades through hidden cameras and telephoto cameras. We've had binoculars and telescopes for much longer than that. The introduction of Glass doesn't provide anything to someone who wants to do this.

If something happens in public that warrants recording, within moments lots of people will have cellphones out. The only thing that Glass will get you here is more immediate reaction- just being able to look and blink rather than getting out a phone. This still only saves someone a few seconds.

I suppose there's a third category- people who just want to record everything they do all the time. You've been able to buy discrete recorders for a long time now- they record for hours on end and fit into your pocket. I'm still not sure how Glass fundamentally changes this equation.

I don't know how to remotely fudge a SSD, but I'm sure someone will figure how it may be done. As for jamming the signal... there are already locales where it's done.

There's a big and oddly intangible difference between something that films everything and something that's specifically filming you.  You all know that feeling when someone is pointing a camera at you, that feeling will stick to whomever is interacting with a glasshole, whether the camera is turned on or not.  Its not going to be welcome in many places, just like how bringing a camera crew around with you tends to net the same sort of reaction.  A decade of reality shows and attention whoring entertainment vectors has softened up the public to this idea of always being watched but its not going to go over very easy none the less.  At least the British have this semi-authority thing riding on their surveillance society so you know there is at least some oversight on what's focused upon and what its used for, its very different though when you have everyone trying to passively record everything.

I know I will be openly hostile to anyone that tries to interact with me while wearing one of these devices.

You know, of course, the it doesn't actually let you secretly record video since when you activate the camera, the screen lights up and that is visible to the other person.

Sure, but I don't think these will skyrocket their numbers. You're right though, it's not a great argument, it misses some larger points.
