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.

"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.

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.

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