    Exactly, and he chose to leave when challenged instead of taking them off, so it seems he was not there to eat.

    I agree. There are watches that can do the same; but they look more fashionable.

    Most people's reactions can be ascribed to emotion rather than due to some pre-planned motives.

    Yup, just saw that in a store! Comes with internet service, email and, you guessed it, camera.

Lots of luck with that one: the ability to regularly check your email and be available to phone calls all the time is so prevalent now that only a decreasing minority of people would be left who would be willing to eat there anymore (read: really really old people).

    Look, I understand where the owner is coming from. The Google Glasses are super creepy and when I see a couple on a date just staring at their phones the whole evening it's sad as hell, but as a business decision the owner just really wasn't thinking his through.

    One of the only times I can think of where an establishment making a no-device rule would be theaters, where using a smart phone necessitates pissing everyone else off (and which, incidentally, is a component in why fewer people go to the movies these days).
    Would you say a theater owner can ban Google Glasses?

    Give it time.

    If the police tap into them, the video goes straight to them and when you cross the street where you shouldn't, the police will be there.

    So why can't a restaurant owner do the same? There are many things that people don't want videoed in a business setting?

    There is personal information that can be used to steal identity.

    Some control over information must be had to protect customers.

    I didn't say he couldn't. My argument was that his decision was extremely short sighted and futile.

    So don't sidestep TheNextEra's legitimate suggestion...

    Would it be equally ridiculous to throw someone out who had their phone up clearly video taping their entire time in the resturant?

    Would it be equally ridiculous to throw someone out who came in with a hand held camcorder, holding it up the whole time?

    What about someone coming in with a GoPro cam attached to a helmet as they were in the store?

    All are doing the same potentail thing that Google Glass would be doing....video recording in the store. Do you feel that it'd be ridiculous in all those cases as well?

    Personally, I doubt I'd toss someone but I'd also understand why you would. As a shop owner you have to at least pay partial mind to what customers may or may not think and the potential issues of customers being video taped when they don't wish to be.
