    A copypasta dude, don't take too seriously.

    Back on off-topic, Hipsters aren't very hipster, they are always the same mac computer userbase that look out a indie music video, who have that sence of fashion, they comfort into their own niche culture too in a way, like those old big cased "nerdy" glasses, and back on topic, just because somebody is part of a new scene or trend doesn't make it right to steal their purse.

    I definitely don't agree with assaulting people, but I also don't agree with Google Glass existing period. Google is quickly becoming an aberration of it's past self. They're getting away with far too much these days, and their cute hipster look causes people to completely overlook it. As we speak Google is lobbying in states to not classify Google Glass as a distraction while driving. This while helping destroy lives in San Francisco. People are losing their homes over there because of companies like Google. I expect some major pushback in the near future for them.

    someone working for some tech company using google glass does not belong in a bar that Does not serve 200 dollar glasses of wine. The rich class has taken over san francisco and skyrocketed the price of housing in the city. Wealth in equality is a huge issue in this country and the only person that can do anything about it is the government. Richer are richer than ever and yet everyone complains Obama is a socialist to offset him from bringing any reasonable changes such as regulating the housing market that would save millions of middle class homes from the same phenomenon in san francisco now happening in parts all over the country.

    Don't worry, Google Glass is a prototype, soon you wont know you're being filmed >

    The age of no privacy is around the corner folks. Be prepared to have every stupid thing you do made public.

    On the bright side, now every thing you see that you wish you could play back, you soon will be able to, and freeze frame.

    It shouldn't be. Unless you're wanting to claim that this is a distraction



    Whereas this isn't.



    The distinction is completely nonsensical. Both are being projected into your viewing field.

    The police? Actually the Police will smash your camera and then shoot you. But yeah, the police do it regularly.

    give it a few years things like google glass will be disguised as sunglasses and reading glasses. Face it, as we grow more technologically advanced we lose more and more privacy.

    Pretty sure you can't read your email or browse your newsfeed on a BMW's HUD.

    Now, if release Glass have some way of ensuring that you can't do things that are unarguably distracting and irrelevant to the task at hand while driving, then sure, it seems like an improvement on the standard way of using GPS or taking calls. And from the stories I read, Google does have a point: "Glass is still in beta, so don't rush judgement."

    It certainly comes off more like typical corporate concern for the bottom line though.

    the only difference i could note is that the hud on the bmw is on the windshield itself, and is only in your peripheral unless you look at it, where as the google glass puts a map in your face that you cant look away from. i havent ever worn them so idk how much of your view they take up but i could see it being a concern (which again, could prove to be a non-issue if they arent that intrusive).

    People aren't exactly "OK" with randomly abusing strangers but if you are taking video recordings of me without my permissions we are going to have a word with each other. With all the shit you see on Youtube and other websites the last thing I want is a video of myself randomly put online. Not that I have anything to hide but they don't really have the right to randomly video tape other people because we don't know what they are going to do with it.

    From comments I've read on stories about Google's lobbying against the proposed laws, when you're running the map app, it'll only pop up when you need to be making a turn soon. The difference is, like I said, all the other things you can do with a computer on your head that run the whole range from mildly to extremely distracting.

    Wearing those things in public is like asking to be robbed or something.

    Like having a diamond ring that calls people names.. lol

    But seriously, they are like $1500 a set right? What's the point of them? use your Android/iPhone like everyone else.

    Not that i condone people getting beat up and robbed

    You can't look at your phone when driving/cycling or doing anything else that requires both hands. The price will no doubt go down too.

    Did anyone read the incredibly vauge article. Looks like she went to a bar filled with wealth hating punk rockers who attempted to steal her google glass. Doesn't say anyone punched her in the face or that it was because she was recording. Just a witness later claimed she shouldn't have been recording in the bar. I think it was more a punk rocker vs yuppie hipster thing.

    Like most threads here that start with some far fetched story that is embellished to the point that the bullshit shines like a supernova, people get behind it and attempt to justify every bullshit action that occured. If she was raped, burned alive, then eaten, someone here would go "well serves her right because X and Y and SHE WAS RECORDING!" That is just MMO-Champion.

    It doesn't matter how absurd any story is, you'll find people here that make any absurdity a reality in their minds, then they bring that mentality here and justify it.

    It seems more likely that she was attacked for her bag and cellphone...
