Google "After reading all the reviews, and talking to people who actually wore Glass, I just see a product plagued by bugs, and of questionable use, that's generating a lot of buzz because people want so desperately to have some new gadget to latch onto, and fear being wrong about the next major technology trend." Nobody wants a computer in their home. Nobody wants a cell phone and always be connected. Nobody wants an iPhone. The current version of this line? Nobody wants Glass. "I haven't worn Glass." Oh right.

I have no idea whether Google Glass will be the next iPhone or the next Segway but the first thought I had was how will it work for the people who wear spectacles?

I wear spectacles as does a surprisingly large proportion of the population, 61% in the US and 68% in the UK for example, and the proportion goes up sharply once people hit middle age.

Yeah, I too wonder how people who wear glasses will wear glasses.
