Good. Do any of you drive with Google Glass? I find it somewhat annoying. I only wear it at work....

In particular, using the device while driving or invading the privacy of people. The problem with driving is being distracted while driving. There's been enough problems related to accidents involving texting while driving, or even using GPS devices. If the driver is distracted, the potential for an accident increases. While it's fair to say that many Google Glass wearers will use the device responsibiy, the unfortunate side is that there are many people who will not use them responsibly. Where do you draw the line? I don't know if there's any real way to avoid such abuses.

For the guy at the theater, he clearly did nothing wrong. However, one related problem was that his eyeglasses are prescription. Maybe he should have an extra set without Google Glass. I also wonder how much Google Glass devices weigh. I would think they'd add extra weight to some degree on the bridge of the nose and the ears. I wear glasses and have a set of polarized magnetic clip-ons. When I attach the sunglasses, I have to take them off after a while because they start feeling like they weigh a ton.

This is interesting and quite amusing. I understand the concerns but honestly as the technology keeps getting smaller it will be harder and harder to control.

I have an interview cam about the size of a carpenter pencil stub that could easily record a movie in the theatre without anyone being the wiser (and without the jerky motion any head mounted cam would have). At this point pulling people out of theatres is all show and bluster. FWIW, there are capcodes that were encoded into film prints that let the distributors know which print got pirated. MOST pirated film was pirated long prior to public exhibition.

Literally, the MPAA is guarding buggy whips in an era of automobiles. A 4K home theatre is now as good as or better quality than a major release. Cheap pirate copies only have value offshore anymore.
