Google Scoble on Glass. "This week I gave five speeches while wearing it. I passed through airports four times (two more in a couple of hours). I let hundreds of people try my Google Glass. I have barely taken it off since getting it other than to sleep." The basic takeaway? "I've been telling people that this reminds me of the Apple II, which I unboxed with my dad back in 1977. It was expensive. It didn't do much. But I knew my life had changed in a big way and would just get better and better. Already this week I've gotten a new RSS app, the New York Times App, and a Twitter app. With many more on the way. This is the most interesting new product since the iPhone and I don't say that lightly."

Well, the fellow says it's more social, since you don't have to take your eyes off your peers while doing stuff.

I'd say that's one the reasons it's even less social than anything, since you can't even imagine what the other does while seemingly looking towards you. It's just awkward.

"I don't need to look away from you to use Google, or get directions, or do other things." So, that's what you call social these days. It's the beginning of a "You talkin' to me?" renaissance ;)
