This was and still is in the back of my mind, I'm not that naive.


And I am not foolish to predict the demise / success of something that has not even been released yet.

Just foolish enough not to.

It's not very nice to imply someone is a fool because they have a prediction. I've done nothing to merit such a response, unless of course you're an employee at Google.

I said I wasnt foolish to think either way. You said you were not naive (and still had that in the back of your head) about a comment I made...which I took to mean that you were still on the fence on whether or not it will do well. (undecided either way) So if thats the case, I fail to see how I was calling you a fool if/when you are undecided. However, I do think it is foolish to say something will fail when a product is in testing/development and not released to the public.

The way in which you explained it the second time was appreciated. That was the implication I received though and I stand by not feeling foolish for predicting the outcome of some event unfolding. In my mind I feel more at ease with the decisions I might make in the future by preemptively forming an opinion of it. If you like to keep an optimistic neutrality to it all than all the power to you, but I'm far more pessimistic.

The majority or people who buy this will see it collect dust.


Want to bet? :p

Seriously, I think this will be big. Of course it won't be the next big thing until Apple releases a verison. :D

Here is another video and good review of Glass. It has a long way to go, with any new/development, but seems to be a lot of interest in it.

Would be fun to be an early adopter but luckily I have a bit more sense.

Same with any product really. Give it a few iterations through the hipster/nerd/too much money crowd and then get it when perfected/lower priced/better specced.

I can't afford to, not at $1500 a pop.
