Ultimately, Google Glass is a complete disaster. Google has made so many fundamental mistakes with business decisions, technlology research & development, and execution of this product. They have alienated 99% of the general population who might have been even remotely thinking about investing into buying a pair of these glasses. The price definitely does not help, but it's also a matter of "I have my Google Glasses, now what?". In other words, there are no perks for having them whatsoever. No virtual coupon discounts that show up on the Glasses when you walk into a store, and no built in navigation capability. They are just glasses that allow for you to take pictures, make calls, and surf the web? Really? All that for what my smart phone already does? There is absolutely no innovation going on here whatsoever. Looks like Google has been taking tips from Apple. Google has demonstrated epic failure in it's purest form.

As usual few where ever bother To really read the TERMS OF SERVICE. Once one owns one of these Google Glass devices, one is also never permitted to let anyone ever use it. I've already met two people who have had their devices locked.

Add to that, the facial recognition issue

This is why I have zero paid accounts with Google. I'm not paying them a single dine for this piece of crap.

I'm sure they are in desperate need of your money and are borderline bankrupt without it. what is a "paid account with Google" ? I wasn't aware that they charged for services or is this just an excuse to bitch ?

It's not an excuse to bitch. Perhaps paid account was the wrong term to sue. What I meant was, I'm pretty sure you do have to pay for some of the services google offers if you want features that even some other free services offer. I can't name any off the top of my head, but I'm sure there'e there.

And on this day, the day when anyone can finally become a Glasshole, I am glad that I live thousands of miles from Google Country.

Conveniently timed to be released on tax day when most people either have their tax refunds or know how much they're getting

They're not exactly doing much to defuse the "Glasshole" meme.

".....To begin with, you select from one of five colors, including Charcoal, Tangerine, Cotton, Shale, or Sky...."

You *do* mean, "Black, Orange, White, Gray, or Powder Blue," right? "Shale"? Fucking Shale?!? LMAO!

Why is it that we must use nouns as adjectives when naming colors? I'd like to use emotions instead: "...To begin with, you can select from one of six colors, including, Anger, Regret, Angst, Disappointment, Ambivalence, or Boredom...."

Why is it that we still have 8-year olds using F-bombs in the posts? Grow up please!

Why is it that we have the self-appointed vernacular police at a site like this? Loosen up, dillhole. If you want to disagree with my stance, that's one thing. If you want to bitch about me not being prim and proper, that's just a waste of time.

I have to say if you spend $1500 on something that makes you look like a tool-box; you definitely will have some "Regret".

$1500 to beta test wearable tech.

Nah~

$1500 to be a prole seems very reasonable though.
