    No doubt there are and will be places that Google Glass are welcomed.

    Social media and scandal sites thrive on it.
    You have just given a reason why the restauranteur doesn't want it in his establishment.
    When I slant my phone you have no way of knowing if I'm taking a photo of your food, videotaping your kids tantrum,
    Which would be a reason why some other restauranteur would want those placed away too.

    or looking something up on wikipedia.
    Okay.


    It isn't something people think of because they are so inured to it.
    I wonder just how many are really inured to it.


    This is dramatically new and so it inspires fear and caution. That will change as time wears on until it is ubiquitous.
    Perhaps, but I think that there will be places people will want to meet and eat where they can avoid such.

    What you call a fairy tale, the rest of us call American law.
    The restaurant owner was protecting the privacy of the other diners and I think that can be considered an obligation (as you say) that he has to them.

    I want to eat at your restaurant. Do you own a restaurant?

    Good luck without a directional mic. Next.

    How can anybody be OK with a random person recording every step you take without your knowledge?

    You do know the ugliest pictures you can take of a person is when they are eating, right?

    Why didn't the guy just take off the glasses and continue to eat.

    Some peoples priorities are screwed up.
    Maybe he was there for a reason yet unknown, or maybe he already got what he came for.

    YouStar is right about one thing though, we're headed in that direction. Google Glass isn't just a trend, it's gonna get smaller, slicker, and everyone will have something like it.

    And in another decade or so, they'll make contact lenses that do the same thing. People won't even know you have them on.
    Personally, I hope I'm dead long before this ever comes to pass. However, if it comes sooner than later, this is one area where I believe government has a role to intercede. Just as it is illegal to surreptitiously video up the skirts of young ladies using a camera hidden in your shoe, it should and will be illegal to surreptitiously video someone naked in a gym lockerroom or at a urinal or pool changeroom, etc. with hidden cameras in glasses, contact lenses, whatever. If the products aren't deemed illegal, then use of them in certain situations will be deemed illegal.

    Perhaps Google glass should have small red lights on their side that upon lit would communicate to the rest that they are now being recorded. Otherwise for all it is worth this person may not be recording what he is seeing at all. He could be playing something there instead.

    Either this, or we need to evolve as a culture to become more comfortable in our skin. I would already recommend to anyone living in this day and age not to do anything in private that they wouldn't want the whole world to find out about because there is no certainty of privacy anymore.

    Likewise, maybe we need to question why certain things embarrass us. Why, for instance, does it matter if someone sees you naked? We all have the same bits and pieces anyway.

    It will be interesting to see how society adapts and how people change their thinking to cope with the new reality that you really can't have too many secrets anymore.
