Google Lucky bas... Joshua Topolsky got to use and test Google Glass. "Is it ready for everyone right now? Not really. Does the Glass team still have huge distance to cover in making the experience work just the way it should every time you use it? Definitely. But I walked away convinced that this wasn't just one of Google's weird flights of fancy. The more I used Glass the more it made sense to me; the more I wanted it. If the team had told me I could sign up to have my current glasses augmented with Glass technology, I would have put pen to paper (and money in their hands) right then and there. And it's that kind of stuff that will make the difference between this being a niche device for geeks and a product that everyone wants to experience. After a few hours with Glass, I've decided that the question is no longer 'if', but 'when?'" No wonder Google is going into retail. They need physical stores to sell this.

I'd love to know the details of how you've built your own processor, displays, memory chips and all. That would make for a wonderful story here on OSNews.

Why would I need to do all of that? What is so ethically or morally wrong with companies that build that kind of hardware?

How does Intel, ARM or AMD screw you? Or a memory or display manufacturer?

Please enlighten me I'm truly interested in your thoughts.

How about for example the third link I find when searching for "intel price fixing":

The point is, they ALL are guilty of the things you mentioned and you're being naive if you believe anything different. Go ahead and search a little, you'll see.

Price fixing is against the law and those responsible have been brought to justice. You've always had the choice of not buying the product if you thought the price was not fair. I never felt the price was not fair and paying for something I wanted and needed was fine by me.

Price fixing is not the same as stealing your private information and tracking your every movement and activity.

It's illegal to open someone elses mail in my country and carries a hefty penalty. I believe it's the same in many countries. Why should it be ok on the internet and why should I support low life that do that very thing?

I guess you don't mind people reading your letters in your letter box or following you when you go out to visit friends, do some shopping, or take a holiday and log your every movement? It's called stalking here and again carries a hefty penalty. Why should it be ok on the internet?
