Google Glass available for anyone to buy today only; limited quantities available says Google
While Glass still has managed to retain most of the cool that helped the device grab everyone's attention when it first came on to the scene, a recent survey found that only 28% of Americans surveyed would be interested in buying the wearable. The 72% who replied in the negative when asked if they would buy Google Glass, cited concerns about privacy and safety as the reasons not to buy the connected specs.
We don't know when Google will again offer Glass to everyone, and you need to keep in mind that there is a limited number of specs available to be purchased today. Whoever buys Google Glass today will have their device updated to Android 4.4 later this week. The update improves battery life, something that is always appreciated. It also adds a new photo sharing feature that lets you share your photos using an Instagram style grid, and an updated SDK for developers. Android 4.4 also removes video calls on Google Glass. Less than 10% of Glass users were using the device to make video calls.

Why do people say these are safety concerns? You are Already being tracked and recorded everywhere you go.

I was thinking of getting one myself but 1500 is too much for the explorer edition when the new one comes out for the public much cheaper what's going to happen to the people that played so much moremore with a product that is not the final version. That is the only reason keeping me from buying it.

google gave free upgrade to people with the first version of the explorer model to the new hardware. maybe they will do the same for the people that shelled out the 1500 to help them do their testing. thats what i am hoping. if not, o well. its for work so im writing off the cost anyway so it only cost me roughly half.

I'd like to know how much does it cost Google to produce each Google Glass...

There will be two types of people in the very near future, those who wear Google Glass and those who don't.

I'd rather be the one with a girlfriend, a hot car, and a social life that doesn't revolve around Google or Facebook. No thanks.
