ZeroCorpse: I have a right to know when I'm being recorded-- WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAVE ANY REASON TO RECORD ME.
hamdinger: If that were an Apple product, they'd be rubbing one out to pictures of the thing, desperately praying that Saint Jobs would descend from iHeaven and give them a set.
ZeroCorpse: Or whatever it takes to make it clear that having that thing on your head, pointed at me, is going to be a bad idea.
PapaChester: All I read here is a bunch of whiners who think that they are so important that everyone in the world will be dying to spy on them.You ants are not worth it.
ParanoidAgnostic: What is with the violent hatred people have for Google Glass? Is it just because Apple didn't 'invent' it?A wearable computer with a heads-up-display is an amazingly cool concept and I can't wait to own one (Either Glass or a, hopefully, less ugly design). The internet is one of the best things humanity ever did and enabling a constant connection with it is inevitable and awesome.
Shrugging Atlas: What is it with you and these things? Every thread it's you going batshiat over them.Here's the scenario you constantly outline: It's you, going about your business with nobody having a fark to give about who you are or what you're doing. Then you see a pair of these things, and choose to go completely lose your shiat...thereby drawing the attention of everyone around with a cellphone who instantly busts those out, records you being a jagoff, and throws it on You Tube with the touch of a button. For someone so adverse to being recorded, you seem hellbent on creating scenarios where that's going to happen.
lewismarktwo: Well, this is similar to freaking out about printable guns when it is far simpler and cheaper to just buy a real gun on the black market. MUCH better spy glasses and tech already exist and are far less obvious. This is simply a non issue.http://www.gadgetsandgear.com/spy-glasses-hidden-camera-eyeglasses.h tm l
ZeroCorpse: When I see dorks walking around in public wearing Google Glass, I'm going to run up to them and say "OK Glass, Google 'lemon party'." or "OK Glass, send message to 'office': 'I hate this job and plan to fart in your lunch.'"Or whatever it takes to make it clear that having that thing on your head, pointed at me, is going to be a bad idea.
Kumana Wanalaia: At least with Google Glass you know you're on camera. Not so with discrete recorders disguised as pens and whatnot.
Vangor: More my concern is why are we suddenly scared of Google Glasses when we've seen how ubiquitous cameras have become. What is fundamentally different about Google Glasses which requires targeting this device itself rather than this being the device which makes us all aware how too ubiquitous cameras have become and requiring some push back?
Vangor: Not seeing what the great big deal is about Google Glasses in terms of privacy. Everyone has a cell phone with a camera on, anymore, and those come out any moment something slightly different or social in nature begins. Not as though the glasses are clandestine spy devices, either, but rather obvious.Facial recognition? Eh. Sorry, but being recognized is not something defended by privacy rights in public.
