Google Glass isn't expected to see its official debut anytime soon, but that doesn't mean that work on the product isn't going with full force as we speak. For example, we have now learned that the tiny display that Google's futuristic glasses will be equipped with will be supplied by no other but Samsung...

it is not Sharp, it is Japan Display Inc. in case of HTC that is concern that Japan Gov. made with participation of Sony, Hitachi and Toshiba and their technologies.

Any arguments? Or it was just an attempt to troll?

People always find arguments out of nothing....HTC doesn't actually make displays if you didn't know....

I'm not sure I get the need for google glass. Seems like it could be an invasion of privacy if used improperly by the consumer correct?

How is it an invasion of privacy....your being watched all the time anyway....CCTV and everything else.....and what would google need with my browsing history....."oh my god he watched that new tech feed youtube video!"

You obviously don't know me very well then.. You run out of intelligent things to say?
15. papss (unregistered)
You didn't get what I was trying to say smh... What I'm meaning is does this thing have a camera? If so what is its function? I didn't say anything about browsing, I was speaking of the function of the glasses.
also just because I'm being watched doesn't mean I want Google doing the same.

May be they should have some kind of led light which should blink when camera app is on...
