    So . . . if someone decided to bring their bongos, the restaurant should just let them bang away?

    It's not obvious that they're taking a picture, just that they're doing something with a phone. They could be checking their e-mail, or arguing on DP.

    And maybe their putting your daughter through facial recognition algorithms in preparation for raping her, while looking up her address. Maybe you need to stop trying to bull**** your way through this debate, acting like it's all the same thing.

    Good on the business owner for protecting his customers.
    The owner didn't want the guy photographing or recording other customers with them, though it's a little late to put the genie in that particular bottle seeing as anyone can record anybody with their phone completely inconspicuously.

    You want to record someone with your phone, you'll have to hold it up with your hand.

    EDIT: Just read up on what it is... pretty frickin' cool but also a huge violation of privacy at stake. I would ban them in my business as well.
    I also took the time today to read about and watch the video showing google glasses being used. I have no doubt that those who don't have a problem using Facebook, with all their privacy issues, will be their best customers. Meh!

    When someone is holding up their cellphone to text you can't tell if they are taking your pic or not. With so many cellphones out there I imagine we end up in someone's photo background from time to time.
    But the Google Glasses there is no doubt what their function is. I think it would be annoying to just be eating your meal with your family and have some guy sitting at another table with a camera pointed at you.

    Plus, if you are a guy standing in the restroom using the urinal and Mr Google Glasses walks in and pulls up next to your urinal... I don't know if I like that.

    Not enough to matter. If I wanted to look like I was just reading my phone while recording someone I could do it, no problem.

    I've always found the concept of Google Glasses to be more Borg than I'm comfortable with.
