Q: When should you take off Google Glass?

A: The instant you put it on, if not sooner.
 
2014-07-09 02:33:17 AM  
Maybe I don't get out enough, but it does seem that Glassholes are not very common around the Seattle area.

Pretty much this.  I would never take it off, since I would never be wearing it.

A: If etiquette demands you remove your hat it's probably a good idea to remove these as well.

This is a product, that though it sounds fantastic to the SciFi buff, is probably the most useless thing Google has ever created.

I cannot imagine a head-wearable computer interface that is more effiecient (or comfortable) than something I can hold in my hand.  And the idea of having to interface with it via voice commands, would drive me up the wall.

If you are Iron Man, or that kid from Ned's Declassified, I can see it being necessary.  But in real daily life, not so much.

Not to mention that because I am already somewhat far sighted (I can't read things close up), this thing would give me a terrible headache.  And I can guarantee that, without fail, there will be lawsuits coming out soon claiming that people's eyesight have been adversely affected by the device.

Oh, and I can't wait to hear about the first car wreck caused by someone wearing this while driving.  That's gonna be a hoot.

While I understand the longer term problems, there are what 4000 or something of these idiot running around?

Even if there where 30 or 40 around here the chances of me seeing them ever are tiny, even if you figure the are concentrated in the downtown core, that 30-40 people out of more than a million people (more on weekdays), how are these articles NOT just advertising for Google Glass?

Always.  Kind of like asking "when should I put away my M-16 Assault Rifle in public?".  The presence of the thing, and the fact that nobody knows when you are or aren't going to use it is annoying and upsetting.

If you want to use it in private go for it.  But in public everyone will just hate you.

Last fall, I completed an accounting class and the instructor was originally from eastern Siberia -- Russian accent and all.  Any of the young clods who didn't bother to remove their ballcaps when class started got a serious ass chewing from her and she would not continue class until said hat/s had been removed.

You are implying that you would remove your hat in a university class and movie theater?

(And honestly a bar or restaurant would be dependent on the quality of said bar or restaraunt).

Sorry, there is no reason to take it off in a movie theater unless you are wearing some 10 gallon hat that is obscuring the vision of those behind you.    And if you are at a sports bar or something it is equally silly to expect people to remove hats.   A fancy cocktail bar - sure.

They've already caused issues in San Francisco with hipsters trying to wear them in dive bars and also finding out the TL isnt the best place to wear obvious blind.

I would not have been surprised if she carried an AK-47 under her coat and shot anyone who mouthed off.  She is a damned good teacher and really knows accounting, which I found particularly funny considering she grew up in the old USSR.

Yeah Russian chicks are generally spoiled pains in the assess with pretty stringent behavioral expectations.

I'm generally a proponent of people dressing better, but insisting in undergraduate dress codes borders the line of stupidity of greyhairs who bemoan that people don't dress up to fly anymore.

Pretty much no one takes their hat off, ever. A lot of people wear baseball caps because they're bald or weird and none of them give a shiat.

Nope, and I very rarely wear hats - sporting events or so.  But it's still stupid to whine at people who wear hats in casual environments.

I've had my Glass since March, and I tend to wear it only in specific circumstances...Mostly when driving (because it's a decent bluetooth headset and using it for navigation is better than a dashmount or phone GPS), or walking around a new place (sightseeing tips, historical snippets, places of interest, quick photos, finding places to eat without digging out the phone). Other than that, it stays in its manly Glass purse. Occasionally I've worn it into a store or gas station when I'm just running in and out, but in most cases it feels wrong to wear at things like a bar, or dinner, or show, much like a hat.  Only worse, because you suddenly feel like a total douche, even if you're not acting like one.

In all the times I've worn it out, I've never had a bad experience with other people, and I've been happy to let others play with it. Generally letting them do so seems to soften opinions, and strangers I've shown it to in days past have been quite friendly well after the event, striking up conversations if I see them even weeks later.  So, yeah...as with everything, don't be a douche, and don't presume others to be a douche unless they demonstrate it by means other than simply appearance. :D

Incidentally, when I took a friend to an Apple store whose location I wasn't sure how to get to (thus used the nav functionality in the glass), once I was in the Apple store, I felt decidedly like the LEAST douchy, least pretentious person there.  So there's THAT.

If you have a boss, you shouldn't be on Facebook.

Is it OK to take and share smartphone pictures at a friend's wedding?
No. Don't be stupid. The wedding isn't about you, guest. Go AW elsewhere.

When should you take off Google Glass, rather than just turn it off?

Take it off. You look like an idiot.
