Most people have likely heard of Google Glass, a device that looks like a pair of glasses that apparently enables the wearer to be connected to the internet all the time. It also allows them to record what is going on around them but because the glasses are unobtrusive, the people in their vicinity may not know they are being recorded and this has apparently led to angry confrontations with those who feel their privacy is being invaded.
I am not an early adopter of new technology and usually refrain from being critical of them. But I am at a loss to understand the appeal of Google Glass, though I am curious about how they work.
Jason Jones of The Daily Show seems as mystified as I am.
