One of the most wealthiest men in America and he's riding the subway. Faith in humanity restored.

That is what we call humility.

He's riding the subway, without bodyguards or any other sort of escort, and without necessity. I suspect this is a little bit of a "keeping in touch with the common man" move on his part, but a billionaire wearing a high tech prototype is a kidnap/mugging victim in the making. Yet, he seems perfectly at ease... +1 to goodness in human nature

People rob others for things that are of value in the populous, his glasses are not popular anywhere yet. So no fear of being mugged for wearing odd looking contraption on his face. Must have been late that night, that train is packed to high hell by the time it reaches Brooklyn. I wonder exactly what Google Glass will bring us?

Had Steve Jobs been alive, and riding in a subway, you would have said quite the opposite. (I know I'm going to be bashed for this, but sometimes, you got to say what you got to say :/ )

it doesnt have to be necessarily humility, he can just be a private person. he doesnt like attention cause then your publicly humiliated and talked about and literally your respect and dignity is shattered over night. a great example would be hollywood celebrities. and im very sure alot of fandroids will thumbs it up. but let me remind you something steve jobs clothes while introducing any of his devices, ipod,iphone,ipad you can see walmart written all over it. doesnt necessarily mean he was humble.

May be he was unit testing..lol Google Glasses will be a revolution in a way we see our portable gadgets...may be we'll wear Google Glass and carry a battery pack instead of phone :) Anyway...I hope Google put a serious effort to make sure Glasses last a day's usage at least

its odd, because the type of people i see everyday on the NYC subway (which i ride EVERY day) dont seem like they would know who he even is. Which is hard for us to beleive being Phone and electronic enthusiests, but youd be surpised how many people dont know what the the CEO of Google looks like. But if i saw him on the train, i wouldent lie, id be a total schoolgirl and flip a table to get a pic with him. Maybe even discuss some things Google Glass.
