Google This is amazing. Not only has Google just opened up the pre-order program for Google Glass to 'creative individuals', it has also unveiled what the user interface looks like and how it works. It's... Nothing short of amazing. I'm throwing money, credit cards, my car keys, my house keys, my Surface RT, my cats, everything at my screen. I want this so bad.

I think I would be more relaxed about this if it wasn't an advertising company making it.

Well, why? Atleast with Google they're not selling your details to others, but if it was some non-advertising company you could bet your ass that they'd sell all the details they could to some 3rd party they do not really have control over, and would that really be preferable to you?

Google does sell your content to advertisers, though not personally identifiable in most cases, it does scan through sensitive materials like e-mail. I don't think it'd be too much of a leap to suggest they could do it for other sources of information.

These contextual ads are no-opts , you cannot turn them off. Google is a nefarious company which occasionally does some pretty neat things like Glass.

Oh to be young and naive. Truly funny how people think a publicly traded company who's primary revenue is advertising is somehow looking out for their interests.
