Re: Not ready for primetime
The price was said to start at $600, not $1500, so it would have the price tag of a smartphone. Having the price of a smartphone and doing what a smartphone does there was little to complain about the price and more to complain about having a hands-free phone attached to your face.
I agree with you that surgeons and others who need their hands on what they are doing but yet they need to consult some information, or be in contact with someone for remote assistance would benefit a lot from Glass. There were several case studies about this as well.
As for those feeling they would lose privacy, well, the streets, public building are full of CCTV cams. They are all over the place, they are also on trees so no one can see them, etc. I am surprised that at this point someone still believes that no one is watching them unless it's so evident as someone wearing a camera atatched to their face.
