post #41 of 60
Their evangelist abandoned the product? Seriously?

Social Capitalist, dreamer and wise enough to know I'm never going to grow up anyway... so not trying anymore.

I'd never heard of that guy before, but that's really obnoxious, and hopefully somebody kicks the crap out of him soon. I know that I would.

For starters, extended use of Google Glass will destroy your depth of field vision. What's that worth to you?

Not too much if you’re a shallow person.

Thank you… thank you…

Google Glass will destroy your sense of self respect much quicker.

Probably from getting socked in the eye due to elevated levels of douchbaggery.

It should come with a warning that you're gonna look like an idiot.

Well, there's always the problem of impressing gadget-worshipping geeks and the tech media who are always looking to crown the "next Apple".

The Glass still has the same shitload of technology, privacy, social, and privacy issues since day 1. Nothing has been addressed.

Incredible how much positive press Google got over the glass, which almost single-handedly led the narrative of "Google innovates and Apple doesn't", and sparked tens of thousands of articles and blog posts the past couple years. Yet, its obvious Glass is and will be a complete market failure- Gogle isnt even bothering to advertise it in any capacity anymore. But thats fine, right? Google will get no flack over that- the important thing is the build up, the hype, all the evangelizers. This thing wont even make a blip in the market, when all is said and done. Its ok- now Google can move on to their next pie-in-the-sky product that tech blogs can salivate about in order to bash Apple, then promptly forget about.

Seriously, I agree with you. What the hell is wrong with the popular tech media. Google can do no wrong. The slightest thing Apple does that doesn't pan out with so called analyst it is effing doom. But I guess getting headaches from using the damn things is way less of an issue than getting dizzy from looking at your iPhone's parallax feature. I haven't worn glass but it seems to reason that for most of us having to look up and focus on data coming at you with one eye would be quite tedious on anyone's ocular muscles. Feel free to correct me anyone who has worn glass. Just saying.

Wasn't there talk that Apple had worked on something like this before it deemed it useless? Or am I confusing that with something else?

 

I think Apple worked on that and the person who tested it was Scott Forstall. That explains that wonky look in his eyes...

 

I actually feel bad taking a pot-shot at Scott, but not so bad that I don't take the pot-shot.

Google likened it to the adjustment period that many people experience with a new pair of prescription eyeglasses and said that the eyewear was "designed for micro-interactions, not for staring into the screen, watching Friday night movie marathons or reading 'War and Peace.'" I guess Google doesn't know human beings well enough. Better hire some psychologists guys cause this is exactly what people will do. Stare at the damn screen and use it to read their Kindle books. So better get out your disclaimers Google just in case of the stray lawsuit that may come your way.

It can be seen as an artistic act.
It can be seen as whistleblowing.
It is, in my opinion, not "obnoxious".

Also, your agressivity towards this person (yes, he IS a fellow human) is frightening. He does not deserve such ill thoughts (keep those for Samsung). Then again aren't you pro-gun?

This thing is never going to sell due to two Things:

 

1. The human barrier of I'm-not-wearing-glasses people to begin wearing glasses - beside sunglasses.

 

2. I'm-wearing-glass people to Wear Google glass, making them look like geeks

 

Nothing wrong in looking like a geek, except for people who is not

I feel like wishing someone to get "the crap beat out of him" is a little overboard, no?

 

Whether or not you like a product, I wouldn't wish someone to be hurt over anything.

But now, the've stopped because even they are too embarrassed so do so. It's ok though, half of Google+ profile pics are taken with this abomination on their faces. The great thing about how Google does shit shit is it allows them to slowly draw down and back away from the product, without much financial damage. Imagine if they actually had real conviction in this thing- set a real launch date, and manufactured millions to hit that launch date, even before anyone has touched the product- as Apple does. Because they actually, truly believe in what they sell. Google? They need to do a market test and a massive online campaign before they even decide if its worth launching. 

 

Google is a company that seems to be run by extremely smart, social misfits with very very short attention spans.  Compare that with Facebook which seems to be run by extremely smart sociopaths who have zero ability to distinguish right from wrong.  Either way, both companies pose a danger to society.

IMHO Google has fumbled away the best opportunity for Glass to be successful. By being so open with the beta development and keeping it public for way too long they've allowed fear-mongers a huge window to fine-tune arguments against it. They would have been better off keeping it in in-house, working with a few dozen developers under NDA and using only a very short open beta period before just putting them on the market for consumer purchase. Use what they learned from buyer feedback to make improvements for version 2, much the same as many other companies do with a new and innovative product.

In my view they've pretty much blown this particular opportunity.
