re: Google Project Glass Must Be More Than Fashion
Anyone who has seen the glasses can definitely say that it is not about fashion! I love the idea but these glasses are to serve a purpose and that purpose is to not be fashionable, it is to make a breakthrough technological product!

Of course it will be more than fashion. The whole reason to put it in a fashion show is to counter the impression that it is NOT fashionable. It is primarily tech geekery.

re: Google Project Glass Must Be More Than Fashion
I'm not 100% sure that Google really has any hints, beyond what it has said, about where this is going. Isn't that, after all, the Google way? Glasses/wearable computing comes before chips embedded into our skin? Or maybe the glasses become so good we don't need to go that far. But I do think that the "what ifs" will be worked out by developers, which will lead to better generations of glasses before they really take off. As with anything, there needs to be a killer app.

re: Google Project Glass Must Be More Than Fashion
I'm not a Google lover, but I'll go ahead and strongly disagree with your argument. All of the alternatives you mentioned for basic video capture are either so clunky that no one will ever use them or pull the user out of the moment and kill engagement with surroundings.

Non-intrusive, always-on video capture is exactly what you need to preserve memories while actually experiencing those moments. If you disagree, then you must not ever have had the experience of your spouse telling you about the awesome things your kid did that day...of course there was no time to get a point-and-shoot up.

When it comes to managing data, donít look at backup and archiving systems as burdens and cost centers. A well-designed archive can enhance data protection and restores, ease search and e-discovery efforts, and save money by intelligently moving data from expensive primary storage systems.
