Google "After reading all the reviews, and talking to people who actually wore Glass, I just see a product plagued by bugs, and of questionable use, that's generating a lot of buzz because people want so desperately to have some new gadget to latch onto, and fear being wrong about the next major technology trend." Nobody wants a computer in their home. Nobody wants a cell phone and always be connected. Nobody wants an iPhone. The current version of this line? Nobody wants Glass. "I haven't worn Glass." Oh right.

It reminds me of all futuristic Japanese animations with giant robots, or machines controlled by cybernetic implants in the head. Or Shadowrun stories with technomancers with access to web anytime they want. Weren't it cool? All that nanotechnology from sci-fi? I'm sure it touched every geek out there.

And now, when we are a little closer to that awesome stuff from the future, just because some megacorporation seeks more money and others will do it, too: NOOOOOO!! TAKE IT AWAY!! DON'T LET THEM!! I choose simple and chappy life as a monk of my privacy. And I have a big problem:

they have sci-fi equipment and I don't,
they have an advantage,
they will know before me,
they will communicate over me,
they will act faster (no because they're smarter, while it's still a possibility),
they win,
I loose.
Game over man, game over.

I either join them in a technologically race of I quit. There's no way I can compete on my own. It's like I would start a business without phone number or email: wont work.
