Google Inc (GOOG) Glass’s Startling Similarity To This Old Technology

Many (including Yours Truly) scoffed at camera phones 10 years ago, but when I whip out my phone to shoot video of my kids, I see its value. Do I use it when I drive, or in a public restroom? No way. But its capabilities have their merits.

Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Glass may fail. It may weird too many people out and cause too many privacy concerns. Or it might be a tipping point into an age where wearable computers transform our lives just like the first computer, cell phone, smartphone, and tablet did. It’s still too early to give Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Glass that much credit, but it’s also too early to write it off. We may figure out a way to adapt the new technology into our lives without giving up all of our privacy. We’ve certainly done it before.
