Google Glass Got It Backwards
"The real challenge is strategic: Google Glass should be a mirror for users to superimpose Internet data on the world around them — it’s called augmented reality — and not serve as a data capture tool for them, or for Google. This fundamental mix-up will doom any future iterations of the product, no matter how sleek or fashionable they appear."

"In a workplace where Google Glass is a standard part of the company uniform, every employee would potentially become a security camera. Managers will be able to determine with unprecedented precision how workers talk to each other, how hard they work, and even how many bathroom breaks they take. The Glass-inflected workplace would become a perfect panopticon, where the boss has the ability to see every employee through the eyes of every single other employee."

Google Glass - Google+ - December #GlassUpdates: It’s the most wonderful time of the…
"Glass is about helping you look up and experience the world around you without getting bogged down by technology. Based on this philosophy, we've got a new setting that lets you quickly and easily capture the moments you care about with a simple wink of the eye. Whether it's capturing an amazing sunset on an evening walk, or photographing your receipt for the lunch you'll need to expense, you can now stay in the moment and wink to take a picture instantly."
