    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.
    I think the Google Glass is much worse as what you are videoing can be upload directly to Google and social media. No decision has to be made, it just happens.

    It's, essentially, like a smartphone that's hands-free. There's no reason to think he was filming, but utilizing its computer-esque abilities.

    I agree entirely.

    Can you quote in the story where it says that? I just re-read the article and it didn't say anything like that and the user in question's facebook page is currently "unavailable". Please don't make things up...
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Good on the business owner for protecting his customers.
    I think technology has gone too far...

    The glasses are a good idea for law enforcement and military ...

    It's disgusting to actually know that every time I walk out my house I'm being watched by cameras everywhere but now google glasses?

    What the **** is this **** Orwell's 1984?

    Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

    I can think of a few things Google Glass is capable of doing well right now: photography is high on the short list. Most of everything else does not work well.

    The suspicion is warranted.

    In the future, it will be a difficult discussion.

    I see a market opening for a pocket sized EMP (electro-magnetic pulse) type function which pulses every 20 seconds or so to disrupt electronics, hopefully without burning them out. If its peoples rights to use Google glasses wherever they go the same rights apply to the shop owner who can disrupt the use of those devices once a user enters their establishment.

    Oh it certainly is their right. I just think that eventually if it is that technology that becomes important to consumers, then businesses will probably have to give in much of the time. Eventually, you looked a little silly banning people from using a cellphone to look up more information on a product.

    Agreed - I would just like the option you know? I'd like to have those islands of non-electronics for those rare Sunday's I'd like to walk down to a coffee shop or bistro, sit in a chair, sip coffee and a munch a biscotti in silence without laptops, pads, phones, texting and the rest of it. I find I need those unplugged days and places. It's near impossible for me to do that at home. But I'm off on a tangent.....

    With Google Glass, I am immensely concerned about public sharing, or rather, public shaming. I think it's something the public (including business owners) ought to be able to have a meta-discussion on.

    Back in Augusta ga I fantasized about turning this giant brick old police station that had been shut down into a theme retaurant. Have prison bar jail cells all along the walls with a table in each one. Some shackles on the cell walls. Servers wearing prison pin stripes or cop outfits.
