Google Glass wearers talk about their new device
it would eventually offer a prescription lens version of the device. Another Google Glass user in San Francisco, Monica Wilkinson, is trying to arrange a get together on Saturday in San Francisco for Glass wearers in the area. It looks like Google has a winner here, folks, with a innovative new product that is already changing the way things get done.
One interesting piece of news involving Google Glass comes from eBay where one seller named Ed listed the product starting at $5,000 and watched it soar to over $95,000 before canceling the auction. Ed hadn't received his Google Glass yet but had the notice from Google that he was going to be receiving it. What he later found out was that Google was sending Glass buyers the ToS with the actual unit. The terms give Google the right to disconnect service if the buyer sold his pair to a third party, forcing Ed to 86 the auction.
One last note. It seems that Google Glass wearers now have a new nick name. Some have taken to calling them Glassholes, but most likely by those who wish that they owned a pair and are jealous.

it wouldnt be practical for you to walk with a pair of glasses and it would be too nautious for anyone, it would deviate and put restrictions in day to day life like driving, walking, you simply cannot just remove your glasses and put it back on at your convinience, this anyhow if improved in the future would be a better alternative.

They're glasses, not a neural implant. You can remove them when not needed, such as while driving. Hope they have a better method for pictures than saying "ok glass, take a picture" in newer versions. Maybe it could have some way to register your eye blinking, so maybe rapidly blinking your eyes twice can make it snap your picture.
