Denying this is just silly. You want to pretend that the Google Glasses is somehow utterly unique recording technology, and I'm telling you you're living in a dream world. Seriously, just play around with your own smart phone some day next time you're in a public place and experiment with the recording technology -- you'll be surprised at how well you'll do.

    Personally, I'd prefer a restaurant that prohibited people using cell phones inside. What to chatter with people not there? Go outside. Many basically shout into their phones - I suppose to make SURE everyone else hears.

    I also think a business assuring privacy would be desirable to some people.
    Yet you have no problem with people videoing cops. Hmm.

    I agree that a business owner should be able to prevent people from videotaping his/her customers. I don't see that as being a violation of anyone's right. I may not have the right to expect privacy while out in public, but as a business owner a person should be able to have some control over that regarding the restaurant, but I can't really see this applying to cell phones and other such things that a person might need for work purposes.

    I was at a Christmas fair last night with one of my daughters and it was rather loud. I tried to carry on a conversation with her at the petting Zoo but really couldn't understand a word she was saying. When we got home I played back the video I had taken with my phone at the petting zoo and was amazed that while neither of us could hear each other the phone clearly recorded both sides of the conversation. It went something like this:

    Me: "What kind of Animal are you petting?"
    Her: "It's a Llama."
    Me: "No, I think that is a Llama."
    Her: "Oh, I thought it was a Llama."

    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.

    Cops are public servants. Customers in restaurants are not.

    How about loud children. That is what I want gone when I eat out.

    They are still people you are recording and video taping. You are still doing it in an attempt to get a "gotcha" moment or worse.

    I actually heard of a restaurant that banned children. I don't think that's illegal either, to have an adults only restaurant, but they might lose a lot of customers because of that.

    It doesn't matter. During the course of their duties as public servants who are basically OUR employees, we do have the right to watch and record their actions. These customers are not being paid by taxpayer money and are not on the job.

    May gain a lot of customers. Not everyone thinks its funny to watch your child run around a restaurant screaming at the top of their lungs.
