Google Scoble on Glass. "This week I gave five speeches while wearing it. I passed through airports four times (two more in a couple of hours). I let hundreds of people try my Google Glass. I have barely taken it off since getting it other than to sleep." The basic takeaway? "I've been telling people that this reminds me of the Apple II, which I unboxed with my dad back in 1977. It was expensive. It didn't do much. But I knew my life had changed in a big way and would just get better and better. Already this week I've gotten a new RSS app, the New York Times App, and a Twitter app. With many more on the way. This is the most interesting new product since the iPhone and I don't say that lightly."

According to some sites, Glass has already been hacked.

Jailbroken, not hacked. They're not the same thing.

Gazing deeping into the Looking 'Glass', it does not take a genius to get to the point where the Glass users could be collectively hyptonised and made to do silly things. It does not take a genius to imaging what happens next. Mover over Steptford Wives, you ain't seen nothing yet.

Wow, someone's been tripping. You do realize that the Glass - display is a small display on the corner of your view and even then it only applies to one, single eye? If hypnosis was that easy it would've been done already in enormous amounts for atleast a decade!

many yrars ago, I was trained to use a HUD in a Fighter Aircraft. IT took a lot of effort to switch part of my brain to watching it, or rather pointers in the information stream otherwise I am sure we would have been shot down in pretty quick order. What training will be given to Glass users so that they at least use it safely? What about the Children? Won't someone think of the children? Being oblivious to what is going on around them should be no excuse.

Really, it only covers a small corner of a single eye. It is not fucking comparable to a jet-fighter HUD.

But but...Forbes says it has been "hacked" and "cracked" by "jailbreakers".
