    Seattle Restaurant Ejects Customer Wearing Google Glass

    Seattle Restaurant Ejects Customer Wearing Google Glass « CBS Seattle

    SEATTLE (CBS Seattle) – A Seattle restaurant asked a customer to leave because he was wearing Google Glass.

    Nick Starr, a video teleconference network engineer, posted on his Facebook page that he and his partner were at the Lost Lake Cafe and Lounge.

    Starr was told by an employee that they didn’t allow people to wear Google Glass at the eatery.

    He claims he’s worn them at the restaurant before and, while people were curious, no one had ever told him to put them away or leave.

    Rather than push the issue, Starr left.

    CBSNews.com confirmed with Lost Lake Cafe and Lounge that they do not allow Google Glass to be worn at their establishment.
    Good on the business owner for protecting his customers.

    I thought only the police could do that.

    I don't get it, but it's his business and, if he wants to lose potential customers, he can run it as he sees fit. Not sure why this is *Breaking News* or why this is even news...

    Can you elaborate on what you think is ridiculous? The actions of the google glass wearer or the actions of the restaraunt.

    Personally, I think the restaraunt owner was well within his rights in protecting his customers. If I brought a video camera in a restaraunt and was recording people, most likely I would be asked to leave. The same goes for an iphone if they think you are recording someone. People need to learn that some toys don't belong in a restaraunt.

    The restaurant owner. Ridiculous to throw someone out over a piece of benign tech.

    Would they respond like this to a cell phone? People use cellphones all the time *in this fashion*

    It smells of BS - and before this - I didn't even know what these silly things were. The whole thing is weird.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    It has the capability to record people without their knowledge and then upload it to social media sites. I wouldn't want that in a restaraunt either if I was eating there. Some toys belong at home or they need to be adults and put them away when going into a big boy place.

    It is also that person's property and they can do with it what they wish.

    People usually have like 8 different things on them at all times that can do that.

    This whole story just seems weird.

    Also, it doesn't matter if people like it or not, we are headed in this direction.
