There was nothing systematic or logical about what you said.  The conversation went south when you kept insisting that Google F'd up, and then aimed that same nonsense at me personally.  And I called you on it, and then you responded by mocking me. You got exactly what you deserved, and i'll happily bring more of it to you if you would like. On the other hand if you'd like to start refraining from personal insults and generally obnoxious, degrading behavior, I will do...
 I might just hang around just to make you unhappy.
 You are nothing but a mocker.  
  No I'm a technologist and yes, a developer, and unlike you I don't have an agenda with respect to any particular platform - I simply like cool technology, and I'm happy to recognize it wherever it comes from, and regardless of the logo affixed to it. By the way, I was really irked by your personal attacks on me, mostly because you have no basis for them at all; they are purely bias driven, are not substantive, and serve no purpose whatsoever.  They are juvenile.  Your...
 Actually I know that Google isn't aiming at some sort of mass market phenomenon with the device because they have stated so. Off topic - are you going out of your way to be an abrasive arse, or is that just your personal style? You are being willfully obnoxious.  You cling to your own definition of what 'success' would mean for a product, and you refuse to recognize how basically flawed and absurd that definition is.   I think I need to let this go, now, because it is...
 Saying over and over that Google F'd up doesn't mean it is true.  Your assumptions and biases are at fault, because you insist that the product is even intended to have a mass market appeal.  But of course it isn't, and insisting that it should is a bit like insisting that the average person should want to go buy a stethoscope.  So you are essentially leveling the argument that a manufacturer of stethoscopes has failed because you don't see half the crowd on the subway...
 I disagree with you.  That's all I can say.  I think your analysis is terribly short sighted and predicated upon a number of false assumptions.  You could compare iPhone iteration 1 with today's and come to the same conclusions.  But having done that would not have made you right. Glass represents a first saleable implementation of something much larger, and it doesn't need to sell 20 million units to be a success; it needs to succeed at accomplishing the goals its...
 I think your fundamental assertions are flawed because they rest on an assumption that a product like Glass is a failure if it doesn't have 'mass market appeal'.  And secondarily, because your argument rests on the assumption that with Glass Google is even attempting to build a mass market device.  And I think both assertions are fundamentally wrong, and that in turn invalidates your entire argument.
 First, Glass was previously NOT available for general purchase on a consumer level - that change happened only about two months ago.  Prior to that you had to join the glass explorers program and be accepted, which meant Google had to individually examine and approve your idea.  So a large part of your argument is inaccurate because it hinges on treating Glass as a consumer grade product, which it is not. Second, you seem confused about what constitutes success in even a...
