Analyst thinks Microsoft will launch its web-glasses in 2014

Microsoft certainly do have the technology and money to easily do this, I think everyone will carefully watch how the Google Glass works out, and if its a positive result, they'll jump on board.

If there ever was a real-life definition of putting the horse before the cart, it would be the action of The 5 Point Cafe in Seattle which has banned Google Glass, and now they can add Microsoft (Windows) Glass to the list!

not a matter of IF but When.
Wearables will be a part of the our future

Yeah, even though I don't like this whole Internet/Glasses thing, its certainly going to be in the future, but I wonder how successful it will be. I won't buy it, i'm leaning to the whole Watch thing, but its all preference and opinion. ;)

Microsoft is a Patenttroll
Yet copying the example Google, without shame...

Good guy Google, all the companies are going to copy google glasses and google will be the only company not sueing each other over things like shape of the frame and software.

Who says Google own the patents for Google Glass? This sought of technology has been used by the military and private technology firms for years now.

And yet after years of development the Google glasses is still not ready.
So i don think its the same thing. Anyway we shall see.

I hope Ballmer never wears Glass. I hate to think of breaking a 1500 dollar piece of technology as I PUNCH HIM IN THAT GODDAMN FACE OF HIS.

you wouldnt get close to him to do that, besides he probably would take you down first considering the standard of people on here
all words no action

Don't worry if he misses ile make sure he gets one™

You don't get it. You haven't been around enough to.
It's a continuation of a running joke, beginning when I noted one time that Ballmer's face induces the desire in me to punch him in the face. It's continued on from there.
I mean, do you really think I'm planning to punch him in the face?

Analysts always have their imagination.

Looks like the glass crowd is going to get much more busy and certainly have a great deal of interest with consumers. If they can really make it light and easy to use, not to mention great looking, it will be a tech that is here to stay and not be annoying like 3D.
