He's awkward. Says "er" a lot. Makes jokes about competitors. Admits that Glass hasn't succeeded yet. Criticises mobile phones (I assume it's a Nexus 4). Says his wife slaps him.
No CEO would do any of this. It's refreshing to see a company spokesperson so "normal".
He's too nervous when he's making a joke though. Those moments are borderline cringeworthy.
And comparing both companies Google is driving inovation.
Google Car will transform our planet within years and the same goes for Glass. Think about where in your workplace you could apply a tool like this.
They have. I first saw stuff about self driving cars when I was a kid, a couple of decades ago. So where are they?
Google has had a fraction of the time, yet appears to have gotten further than most already..
I think this is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rie-hPVJ7Sw
No onstage demo, jizuz i always present my stuff live ! that's where the emotions are.
What does that even mean?
When I write, I rely on a knowledge of words and how they relate to my mental abstractions to be able to formulate sentences from them.
Pretty much everything we do rely extremely extensively on facts and knowledge we need to acquire and remember.
Not knowing or remembering details is fine. I rely extensively on documentation and searches to write code, for example. But you need to know what to look for and what to search for.
You can learn how to do it, but that just means transferring the information from the outside into your brain.
You are not able to meaningfully reason (think) about a topic if you don't know anything about it and I show you the Wikipedia page. Easy access to data is useful if you know what to do with it.
The OP said that having easy access to information allows him to "be human" and think. I'm arguing that is not nearly enough.
Furthermore, this will make you highly dependent on a device that could ran out of battery or connection. How will you perform computation that you need for decision making then? Let's take it further, why go to universities when Google Glass tells me what I need to know?
I am still amazed at this approach by Google with Glass - they don't offer a compelling reason to buy it yet, and people still seem to want it.
When your phone is in your pocket your hands and eyes and ears are free but when you are using it they're not. The only difference seems to be looking up and slightly cross-eyed and not down.
If Glass becomes a success, I fail to see how it would bring people out of the bubble they're in when using a phone. It seems like Glass just moves the bubble.
I guess then it'd be a redundant technology (is there such a thing?), but I assume people wouldn't be so concerned about their privacy as well, right?
* Camera-based privacy concerns.
* A rude distraction in my face/someone else's face that interrupts human interaction.
* It's ugly.
I completely ignore the last.
For the second, social norms will change or develop to address this. I expect people who pause in a conversation to stare at their eyeball screen will get similar reactions as people who glance down at their phone. Some will care; some won't. A lot of younger people won't give two poops.
For the privacy/camera based concerns, I'm quite fatalistic about it. Google has indicated that it's going to be obvious when you take a picture -- but more importantly, we are going to be surrounded by more and more cameras and sensors as time goes on. Since I don't think we can beat 'em..
