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.

It's a little premature to determine what this device is or isn't as far as how Google is going to use it. Let's give Google a chance to fully monetize it and then we'll revisit the issue of privacy, marketing, and so on.

You'll be hard-pressed to find any for-profit company that cares more about your privacy than their bottom line.

Knowing google's history of tracking everything when you use google products, I'd say worry about privacy and personal data and user tracking now and worry about how google monetizes it, later.

Not just this, lets wait a few revisions to see how their overall aim for the project is. Maybe the way people envision Glass used today is very different from how it will actually be used a few years down the road.

Don't judge an idea off of its version 1.0 deliverables, as the initial version is usually the minimum viable release.
