Google The day has finally come: Google has started shipping Google Glass to the lucky few early adopters. Now that it's shipping, Google has also unveiled a lot more about the API and the specifications of the device itself. While the company had already given out substantial details at earlier occasions, there are still a few surprises here.

Will you please put your phone in your pocket and not take it out when I'm around? You might be recording me and I have no way to tell.

Right, because that will go down well. Also, it's illegal.

Relax fanboi, the man has a point. Glass is an interesting product but the privacy concerns are definitely there.

You don't use your smartphone at eye level, you glance down on it. When someone is taking a picture of you or a video it's pretty evident; not the case with Glass.

"Glass... record that busty woman before me !"

A new way to get in touch... with your lawyer ? Or your dentist ? Maybe both...

I took pretty interesting pictures and movies keeping the phone at shoulder level. You just have to know where to aim and how much to tilt your phone. ;)

Pro-tip: if you attach your phone on top of your shoes and go in a hypermarket, you can get some amazing shots. ;)
