Humor: What the reorganization with Google Glass really means
posted by Maxwell R. / Jan 18, 2015, 7:15 PM
One thing Google has made absolutely clear is that there will be a second generation of Glasswear. The “graduation” of Glass out of Google X labs and forming it into its own team (reporting to Nest founder Tony Fadell) is arguably a good sign.
That does not stop the doubters however, many developers wondering if this shift with Glass is a good thing or merely a pretense to what will be a quiet passing to the waste bin sometime down the road.
We are certain Glass is not dead, even if it is exiting the stage for the time being. There are a number of viable applications where Glass is proving its worth, and this sabbatical will give the Glass team some breathing room while it puts the finishing touches on the next generation.
Still, you have to wonder if that is really the plan…

It's not a smartphone. And since smartglass is pretty new tech, it's expensive.

It has more professional applications than commercial applications. They will eventually release it and it will probably form a pretty lucrative high margin market. Then Apple will patent it and claim to be the first to release the Apple Glass, and then MS will desperately try to catch up with their version sporting a metro touch UI.

It's just evolving into the next logical phase, designing it to be socially acceptable and for the mass market. With all the controversy surrounding Glass, the design and technology is way ahead of its time for a lot of people.

It was slightly ahead of its time, a stepping stone to learn about to learn about User Interfaces for devices further down the road. I wonder how the masses will react when the first Direct Neural Interface devices begin to become available commercially.

Let's just wait for Apple to release the iGlass and marvel how it's like nothing that came before it.

Apple will never waste their resources on such obviously useless craps in first place. And when Apple launches something, it's really usable, useful, and likable, unlike done by Samsung and co. where it's all about to be the first and/or fill the checkbox in the features list.

"Apple will never waste their resources on such obviously useless craps in first place." I beg to differ. http://www.businessinsider.com

the problem with google glass, (unlike phones and other tech) i just can't think of something that i can say " Oh! i need this for (put something here) "... am sure it has some uses but for average person they will have hard time finding away for it to be helpful or enjoyable..
