Google So yeah, Google totally just won the conference showdown by easily beating both Apple and Microsoft. Not only did Google announce Android 4.1 with some really cool new features, a cheap but non-crippled tablet, and a new Android device called the Nexus Q, but they also opened up pre-orders for Google Glass. So yeah.

I never said they are trying to scam anyone, I just think it's a bit early to release such a limited form of the hardware for such a lofty price.

The comparison to the Kinect was made to show the issue with where they are right now compared to what they are charging for it. I know that they want Glass to become what they envisioned in the concept video, and I want that too! But the "live demo" we saw the other day was no more spectacular than what people on Google+ do every day in Hangouts. The only difference was that the camera was head-mounted and wireless. That's a cool thing to be sure, but it's a very small first step and not worth the price of entry as far as I'm concerned, given I could build the same thing with spare parts on the workbench to my right. I would want to see something a little more advanced before buying into the project.
