(C|Net)   A proud day for Google Glass, as man captures the first fight followed by an arrest via Google Glass. Who knew a fight could happen on the Jersey Boardwalk, by the way?   ( divider line

I would have thought the first fight captured by Google Glass would include a close up of a fist impacting the wearers face. Dorky farking bastards.

Some Bass Playing Guy:
At least the video was better quality than the typical cell phone video.

The most significant benefit of Google Glass will be the demise of vertical video.

Nice to see glass is getting some attention again, its almost as if something very detrimental to its image was in the news the last few weeks.  Something that might make people rethink the idea of having a double-camera'd device on their heads 24/7 that's owned by Google and who's "Only when you want it to" recording devices store to the cloud where its completely safe from anyone ever seeing it again.  Pinky swear.

I'm looking forward to the first video of the police beating someone's ass for wearing it during a traffic stop.

bmr68: Medic Zero: bmr68: Medic Zero: bmr68: No one in that busy crowd even looked at the guy wearing his Google Glass. Not even the cops who he walked up next to. The future versions will look less obvious. Tinted glass and or even designer models.

Once the cops get burned by a few videos of them beating helpless people for no reason like they do so often, they'll just confiscate ANY glasses they see when they are tuning someone up. Hell, in some places it's already illegal to videotape the police already.

SCOTUS ruled last November ruled that you can film the police any where you want as long as it's in public. Everyone has cameras, so the police have to suck it up and get with reality.

Dealt with any police in the past few decades? Mostly their policy seems to be for them to do whatever they want and let lawyers sort it out later. And by sort it out later, I mean pay off people who manage to succeed in suing the city that employs the pigs, while the cops continue to do whatever they want. Case in point: LA has a annual $10 million dollar fund for paying settlements for police brutality.

I have childhood friends who are NYPD and Suffolk County NY cops that are very professional.  Bad cops are the problem not the system.

And a man who is like a second father to me was a cop and my cousin is a cop. Bad cops aren't the problem, the cultures of their departments and society as a whole that allow these things to happen with an alarming regularity are the problem.

TV's Vinnie: People who wear Google Glasses look like absolute douchenozzles.

The design is absolutely hideous, isn't it? I love gadgets, but I would be embarrassed wearing Glass.

Metraxis: PC LOAD LETTER: I'm looking forward to the first video of the police beating someone's ass for wearing it during a traffic stop.

The beautiful thing is that will only happen once or twice.  Once people realize that stealing, disabling, or destroying the device doesn't erase its recordings, or even make them inaccessible, certain kinds of behavior will have to come off the table.

The first conviction to come from such a device recording and archiving its own destruction will be delicious.

Exactly: "glass, take video and post to my circles."

Boom. Instant recipe for a polite cop. Also, once the first mugger's face gets plastered all over the internet before he even has a chance to say "give me your wallet" will quickly cut down on people targeting glass users.

It won't take long for people to realize that, while it's not always recording and uploading, it's so quick to switch to that mode with little more than a sentence, you can't expect to get away with things just because they're not actively holding a camera or phone up. Even if you take the device away and smash it, it only stops it - it doesn't erase what is already on the cloud.

theorellior: I do find it amusing that people get butthurt over vertically-oriented video.

The funny part is that with the resultant matting to 9:16 the video is easily 1/4 size when you watch it on a mobile device.
