    Which would be silly and technophobic. It's also a sentiment that I'm sure will spike as the technology rolls out and recede as younger generations who are prepared to accept it and are acclimated towards it come to the fore.

    What's the difference between this and a restaurant that doesn't allow you to be seated if you don't have a shirt or shoes or if you aren't wearing a suit and tie? So the restaurant decides they have rules for serving customers in their establishment, big deal. The sense of entitlement that young people have today is incredible.

    Your opinion noted. Sometimes toys need to be left at home.

    Who says he's "scared" of a piece of tech? You? Maybe he's just respecting his customers who want to have a quiet, private meal. Some people still honor manners and a sense of decorum - not so much young people and their tech toys. Douchey is in the eye of the beholder.

    Shirt and shoes are typically demanded because of standards of decency and decor for an establishment as well as hygiene. This is simple fear of technology. We aren't entitled, no one has said he should be forced to let people wearing Glass to his restaurant. What we are saying is that it is foolish. Like I said before this sentiment will erode as our generation and the ones that will come after us take to the fore.

    Is your cellphone a toy? Maybe to you. Not to most of us and we'd be more than miffed if a restaurant told us to leave it at home. This is obviously a generational gap.

    Not crazy about this whole thing. If it was just a means of linking to the Internet, I wouldn't care... but it has a outward facing camera, which makes it intrinsically a problem vs privacy.


    Being seen is one thing. Being filmed is another.

    As liberty-ignorant generations come of age, we'll surrender our right to privacy to the govt and businesses.

    Oh my god. No one in this thread has said he should be forced to accept people who wear Glass. I'm personally a firm supporter of employer and property owner sovereignty. This isn't what we've been talking about.
