Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: Couldn't you watch movies at your desk all day and nobody'd be the wiser?

No, because:

a) The resolution is pathetically low (believed to be 640 x 360 pixels), which would be much like watching a naff YouTube video.
b) That low-res display is also tiny, occupying only a very small portion of your field of view. So it's like watching a naff YouTube video on somebody else's monitor from halfway across the office.
c) That tiny, low-res display is also partially translucent, so you can see whatever's behind it, *through* it. Unless you have a convenient dark spot you can stare at, it'll be like looking at a reflection of somebody else's monitor in your office window. (Except the right way around).
d) You'd need to have headphones in
e) It would be blindingly obvious to everybody around that you had your idiotic looking "glasses" on and headphones in, and were staring fixedly and somewhat cross-eyed and above your typical field of vision, at a dark spot on your desk.

You'd be that guy who thought he was being so subtle, but everybody in the office knew what he was doing.

What I'd love to do is to make up a nickname for people who use a product that doesn't even exist yet, then pre-determine that they are bad people and nobody likes them. Then if I could harp on that for a year or so, that would be greeeeaaat.

Version 2 will be smaller, lighter, have better battery life, and will blend in almost seamlessly with regular glasses.  At that point, everyone will have them.  Even the submitter.
