1 forgotten fact
Google Glass is just ugly. It is a terrible design, like a cheap prop from a 70's or 80's science fiction TV show; a curved piece of metal (plastic?) with a little lucite cube. A Space:1999 leftover.

Ergonomics?
"it draws your eye in a way that gets old after a while"

I'm questioning if the author has ever tried Google Glass.

"A helmet with a full visor display would be more comfortable for long-term usage."

I'm certain the author has never tried Google Glass.

Glass
Wearable technology in the form of glasses/watches/bracelets is about to become mainstream. Glass is but one example of this technological juggernaught.

Re: Privacy Concerns
It's not dead though: The privileged and powerful have privacy, at least more of it than the average person.

Privacy Concerns
A better translation for number 10 would be:

Privacy has been dead for over 100 years. Get over it.

Facial Recognition
As someone who's terrible with names, I'd love a little screen to show someone's name and where I know them from when I run into an acquaintance at the supermarket. (Nobody ever bought into my scheme of wearing trade show badges in their personal lives...) Seriously, though, I am leery of how this capability will be used -- advertising and marketing, law enforcement and stalkers, and who knows what else. I realize it's coming (here already?) but Google Glass made facial recognition seem more real and more glaring. Unlike a cell phone screen, data is right in front of the wearer, who doesn't need to make any extra effort to pull up data.

Google Glass
The facial recognition potential does pose a creepy factor. What gives you the most pause, readers?
