I'd hold out for a sub-$200 price.

Also, keep in mind that Samsung is coming out with a competitor in the fall.

Samsung 'Galaxy Glass' wearable reportedly set for September reveal | The Verge
Still $1500.

I don't see this coming into the sub $200 range, at least not as a high end product. Remember it's still a small android device, with a decent feature set.

You're completely misinformed about the product. Google Glass has less privacy concerns than a dumb cell phone. It doesn't even have a built-in GPS to track you... like a phone does.

I like technology so I got one last year. It's worth exploring for sure. You'll learn a lot from your interaction with it. Worst case you'll learn that you don't like it. Best case, you'll learn about a lot of new opportunities with the direction technology is going.

If you like technology, give it a shot. If not, pass it up.

3 New Ways Google Glass Invades Your Privacy - PolicyMic
All 3 of the concerns listed in that article are based on the incorrect assumption that Glass is recording and streaming live video in real-time, all the time. It isn't and it doesn't. It doesn't have the battery life or horsepower to do that.

Watch my video above of Glass-user Robert Scoble's presentation and become better informed, rather than a purveyor of alarmist speculation.

We get it. You don't like Glass. It's not for you. If that article articulates your reasons for your view, rest assured they have little connection to reality. Maybe someday they will, when the device has more horsepower, but not today.
