Google Glass now in open beta and on sale to anyone

Google Glass now in open beta and on sale to anyone
Google has been slowly ramping up the Glass Explorer program, but today marks a big shift in that beta program. No longer do you need to get an invite, or jump in on the fun during a one day sale. Google has opened up the beta program to everyone, which means anyone can buy Glass (assuming you have $1500 in disposable income). One good part of the deal is that Google is offering any of the Glass frames or shades for free when you drop the $1500 on Glass. That's a pretty significant deal considering the Titanium collection frames are $225 and the shades are $150. 

Interestingly, one of the options is already listed as "Out of Stock". All colors are available, except for the Charcoal Glass with the Bold Titanium frames. The frames match the color of the Glass unit with the earpiece of the frame. This seems to indicate that Google is being very careful with how many devices it produces. The plain Charcoal has always been the most popular color, so, it may not be too surprising to see those go out of stock here and there.

"One of its main tasks was spying on the population, mainly through a vast network of citizens turned informants, and fighting any opposition by overt and covert measures including hidden psychological destruction of dissidents."

Knowledge alright, but what you tend to do with that knowledge is up to you. You in this case deciphered it to be that Google is working on something big that has negative effects to mankind. Its okay tho, there were conspiracy theorist too when computers came who claimed machines are here to take over.

If you think Google is up to creating a large network of people to enslave the human race that's your problem. I see a company that sees into making the future a better place and makes profit while it does so.

If Google could release a Glass version that allowed users to remove or change the camera, then you would see a lot more people excepting of glass especially since its more then just the camera. You have a screen, mic, speaker, GPS, accelerometer, gyroscope, touchpad, and more. The computer part alone I would use way more then the camera. Ask for weather, news, sports, maps, searches, and more.
Google you would be so surprised how many people would be on board with glass if you did not make the camera the focal point.
