StoPPeRmobile: pxlboy: Google Glass Threads are the new Facebook threads.Facebook makes me think of old people.
Slaxl: ZeroCorpse: They'll have to accept that they can be Google searched right there, while they're talking to the person.Okay, I can see how people might have a problem with the fact that they could be recorded and uploaded in the blink of an eye, once we get unlimited data plans, but what's with the searching? Who's searching for what? I don't understand that one.
BumpInTheNight: LasersHurt: I think this hits the core of it. People seem to be projecting it all at Google Glass for whatever reason, high profile I guess.Still in conversational settings I had always assumed you'd set them aside or on your head, putting it aside like we do with Cell Phones now. Etiquette will still exist, in most cases.But how will other people in the restaurant/coffee shop/artisian faire know you own a pair if they're set aside next to you on the table? :) These devices are designed for an always-on always-available kind of thing, they're marketed to be worn at all times during your day so its always there, I'll appreciate the people who do set them aside during social situations but we both know that's not the angle they're going for and not the type of people they're after.
Fubini: I'm not sure how Glass is more disruptive than smartphones/cell phones. You haven't had privacy in public spaces for decade now.
BafflerMeal: Figuring out my personal rules.They won't be allowed in my home or business without specific permissionGenerally in public, I will avoid people who wear the tech as is possibleWon't interact conversationally friends, family wearing them. Want to talk to me? Take them off./already dislike the proto-glassholes who try to record me with mobile video
LasersHurt: BumpInTheNight: I know I will be openly hostile to anyone that tries to interact with me while wearing one of these devices.Thanks for warning us that you're a douchebag.
Aarontology: It's getting more and more likely that I'm going to have to choose to never be in the room with someone who has one of those things.
