8. I am on my wife's computer and she refuses to have anything to do with google at the moment

since she can't comment or respond to a few of her friends on you tube. Google is now linked with it and demands a real name. so they have kept her account from doing anything like responding to her friends.

11. Bing, then. or Yahoo.

But if you don't want to trust Google, it really doesn't matter what Google Glass is, does it?

25. All she needs to do is create a Gmail account.

Make the user name absurd and use that to log in to YouTube and all the rest.

They don't know my real first name and they won't if I can help it.

2. Think of it as a small computer viewed through the glasses. Certain movements

Can take pictures or video, or view data

4. It's a small projected computer screen that you wear on your head.

I recently saw someone with one on and he showed me what it can do.

You can take a photo, ask for directions, pull up a document, do a web search.

It takes voice commands.

IMO, interesting concept with a long way to go.

17. Remember when the iPhone ownership was a status symbol too?

There were a lot of amusing articles on that several years ago before it became ubiquitous.

16. An eventual future

If you get involved in science fiction movies, books, comics or animation, the Google Glass concept is something that has been popularized for a couple of decades. It's essentially something that will be the next evolution of the phones we all carry.

These concepts have been around for decades and it's fun seeing the way it's coming into reality. Google Glass is pretty much the Apple Newton of them though, but it's something that will be released into the wilds and become more than it looks like now. I'm definitely excited for it.

23. Just requires some imagination

In some ways it's a bad example, but look at how science fiction handles it since those areas cover the societal changes these produce in interesting ways such as Minority Report. I'm not sure I can explain it easily at the moment, but so many shows use them as a natural aspect of living, such as Almost Human, that you see a more connected world. Similarly, there were a lot of positive uses of it in the film Strange Days but also some dangerous ones. Such is the case with any tool.
