    I’m looking forward to being able to record my surroundings without it being apparent.

    I would be suprised if it wasn’t up there with the Sinclair C5 in a few years.

    I don’t see even a slight chance Google Glass will be a trend.

    Some useful points to keep in mind, but ludicrous to think any business (except those selling Glass-related stuff) should change their marketing practices. Best case Glass is 2-3 years before any significant adoption, and the odds are against it ever being widespread.

    Businesses do need to change their marketing to account for smartphone use, and to a lesser degree for tablet use (since that is closer to desktop model). Glass and other wearables are minimum 2+ year considerations.

    Equivalent of the Nintendo Power Glove. Awesome idea. Not exactly what they had hoped for. Those who can really benefit from it because of utility in their niche will eventually have something designed just for their niche that plays the same roll.

    The price of the glass would play a major role for the marketers whether to change the SEO strategies or not. Let’s hope the glass would be affordable and if yes, then its a SEO revolution.

    I just love the number of columnists who opine on the premature death of FB. They can’t wait for FB to die and for Google + to finally take its rightful place. Man, guess you didn’t buy stock in FB, eh? Still below $100 a share. You might consider it since FB isn’t going anywhere and here is to stay for quite some time. Get used to it and learn to hate it just a little less.

    I can’t wait for FB to die, but not because I want G+ to take it’s place. I simply have strong dislike for the FB brand.

    I’m not sure Glass is the equivalent of the Nintendo Power Glove.

    Glass aspires to replace smartphones. Smartphones are not niche specific. Some niche’s use more of the functionality than others, but they’re geared for the mass consumer, as is Glass.

    You’re probably correct to assume mainstream adoption is 2-3 years away, but I disagree that the odds are against it ever being widespread.

    Look at the macro trend of computing…
    1) Big, server sized computers only offices could afford and use
    2) Desk sized personal computers people could use in their home
    3) Laptops people could take with them from place to place
    4) Smartphones people could carry with them all the time

    People want to be closer to technology. They want more access to it, with less friction using it. Human wearable computers is the next step, and a company like Google is poised to bring it to market and succeed.
