On a whim, I signed up for Google Glass a while back.
I received my email notification that I was approved for purchase. So I went to look how much they are these days.
As much as I’d like a set, mostly to just use for recording when I do tattooing, I’m definitely not going to shell out $1500! I love technology, but that’s a little much for a what is essentially a portable VCR.
Besides, I don’t want to walk around looking like a douchebag like those people who walk around with their bluetooth headsets in all the damn time.
Until next time...

I have seen two people wearing them, one in San Francisco and one in DC. Interesting look. I am not sure what they do that is worth $1,500.
Fie on people walking around looking like they are the Borg or working at a call centre!
No google glass or blue tooths and no wire hangers, ever!!
What’s wrong with being a Borg? We all want to be assimilated on some level. 😉
so at what price WOULD you walk around like a douchebag? : )
Hmm… that’s a good question. Hopefully it would be in the billions of US dollars.
Wait 2 months and they’ll be $750 and in 6 they’ll be about the same as a cell.
When cells first came out everyone thought the same thing about them as what’s being said here about the GG – time will tell.
Thanks to the evolution of the tv, each day the real world looks more and more like the world depicted in Blade Runner – tv style: billboards, restaurant menus, bus stop ads, highway signs on the New Jersey Turnpike (the new ones look exactly like the old green reflective one), and more.
I would have done the same… They are a bit expensive but they will get cheaper. Like 3D printers. Give them some time. They’ll get cheaper and better
Ugh. I’m already invaded enough by technology as it is. Don’t need this, too.
I love tech. I just don’t love how some people are… oblivious to common sense with how they use it.
I really like what Google Glass can do, but I’m not really a fan of the price right now. Honestly, I briefly considered paying the $1500 as well, but I can justify this price.
I’ve seen two people wearing them thus far and I know one person that has them and he loves them.
