The End of Google Glass?

 

 

 

There are lots of rumors swirling about the demise of Google Glass. Developers are leaving the project,  apps are being abandoned and there is a distinct lack of social media noise being generated by or about Glass.

My two cents on these rumors –  I think Google made a strategic error when rolling out Google Glass. While I believe Google Glass with the right person in the right context can practically move mountains, the brains at Google thought matching social media tech gurus with Google Glass would be a more perfect idea. Turns out Google Glass was the perfect instrument to illuminate what a-holes they are in real-time. You put perfectly good Google Glass on a tech a-hole and you get what is now known as a ‘Glasshole’. Couple this with a public that is not too happy their illusion of privacy being torn down and you have the makings of a magnificent disaster.

Agree? Disagree? Have no idea what Google Glass is? Let me know in the comment section.

    I’ve heard of it. But don’t know a lot about it. I heard there are some privacy concerns because someone wearing them can capture images of random people without their knowledge, kinda like those contact lenses in Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol

      There definitely is an appropriate time and place for wearing Google Glass. Unfortunately, Google shared Glass with a number of people who arrogantly believe they are above societal rules.
