Re: Business Case
Daniel, 

"I continue to believe that the best use for Google Glass will come in the enterprise for the time being. Once it becomes a work tool, then it will have a better chance of being adopted in the mainstream."

I believe the same. Using the device without needing to take your hands off from what you are doing will prove to be the best Glass has to offer. Then, it's up to the user to see how Glass adapts to his needs. 

Using Glass in the enterprise can improve efficiency and speed in certain areas of work. Also, I believe Glass will find one of the uses in healthcare, especially in the case of surgeons, as well as in streaming live surgeries to medical students. 

Will you be a Glass adopter? :)

Re: Business Case
I agree - $1500 is just too much for consumers. But, there are all kinds of people in all sorts of pursuits for whom Glass might be a real boon. A mechanic who could look at the various stages of a reconstructed engine as he's rebuilding one, or a surgeon who could see read-outs of vital signs without taking her eyes off the operating theater. The list is endless. Undoubtedly, once Glass's production ramps up, the price will come down. And then, we can all buy one or more of the device.

Business Case
I continue to believe that the best use for Google Glass will come in the enterprise for the time being. Once it becomes a work tool, then it will have a better chance of being adopted in the mainstream.

That's kind of a reversee mentality that other groundbreaking devices have gone through like the smartphone or the tablet - both grew through consumer adoption.

I just think that the business case for Google Glass is too great an opportunity for many companies to not get on board with.
