    Don't know the nature of the restaurant. There are top dollar restaurants that will quickly evict anyone taking photos. REAL FAST. How could wealthy men and women take their affairs anywhere without that? We're talking about restaurants where the minimum a check will be is $100 a person IF they order water - and if they order water they won't be coming back except for weekday lunch.

    No offense but if you can log into this board with your user name and password, you should be able to type in Google and then type in "google glass" to get your answer.

    Well, it's a little hard to imagine anyone going to The Little Door in Beverly Hills and spending the evening (and at least $200) checking their email on their iphone. In isolated cases it would probably be tolerated, but otherwise I could see the management taking action.

    I'm sure there will be many who can't wait to spend $1500 to look like a jerk, but i can't say i'll shed any tears if Google Glass doesn't make it's way down under.

    In other words, you want to pontificate from your rocking chair, huff and puff, and offer no substantive alternative or solutions.

    If you're trying to convince me that people shouldn't film one another without the other party knowing, you're preaching to the choir. In other words, no duh.

    That's kind of like saying people should respect each other's property and not steal from one another. Well no ****, sherlock.

    It goes without saying, though, that some people are going to do it anyway. Which is why the productive discussion to be having is what to do about it.

    Don't waste anymore of my time bloviating about how your generation believes in liberty, etc etc etc and other nonsense. Suggest a solution or accept the inevitable. Anything else, and my generation has a word for it: it's called "whining."
