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.

The same argument were made about the mobile phone ;) .


And the argument was made about bluetooth headsets and nothing changed there: it looks douchey (of course, that doesn't apply to everyone). But I'm not aware of such arguments around cell phones in general...maybe when phones were the size of 24 oz beer can and not *that* portable, OK... And even if you're right, well then the argument has come back to life: just look at the divide around "phablets" like the Galaxy Note.

Looks matter, period. To those who suggest they shouldn't matter when it comes to Glass, then why doesn't that apply to fashion choices? If we always prioritized utility over looks, then wearing "fanny packs" would be cool and our universal dress code would be cargo pants and SWAT team vests.
