I was talking about personal privacy... like "Hey! I dont want to be in picture taken, put that away!"

The Glasses are banned in the meetings because of meeting secrets... it is not about personal privacy..

It's not individual privacy in a shareholder's meeting.

Yes. Well, personally I feel like individual privacy is as important as organizational privacy (if not more).

Wise move. Thus showing how easy it is to mitigate the risk of such devices being used in sensitive meetings - have them removed. GASP!!! Not a technical solution but a real world one - how innovative.

Now, feel free to rant nonsense again...

its going to be hilarious when the guys defending this device get their credit cards and other sensitive info stolen just by someone taking a quick glance and having a permanent copy.

THere are spy glasses now that can do just that. No different from what is currently going on.

So how long until they make Google Glasses that look like normal glasses so you couldn't tell they were capable of recording things?

Hypocrites.

Oh please, they are banning ALL recording devices...not just Glass. If it was just glass, I would agree with you. But it isnt. Nothing different from what a lot of places dont allow now either. Its a sensitive meeting. I am betting if another company came out with a device like this, they would support the use of it and at the same time, not allow it in certain areas.

If I come to your meeting... you tell us about your upcoming device...

do you want me to tell everyone else outside of the meeting about it right away?

No? I didn't think so... that is why Google is protecting secrets until they are ready to tell the world about their device or whatever they plan to release.

I also bet that Nokia has a similar stance. I guess that will make them hypocrites as well for not allowing, or allowing the use of, their Lumias in meetings.

This is nothing different than what has been going on for a long time.

Like I said before, I totally respect their wish for privacy.

They have cameras that can be completely hidden now, and have had them for many years now. What is the difference?

Nah, those have wires or other bulk added. I mean just regular frames and glass, but with all the technology built in.

That one has wires in the back. Can be easily concealed by someone with long hair. And no bulk

That is right... for example, teddy bear with hidden camera in one of the eyes... or hidden in the clock, the pen, etc.

I have a watch that can record up to an hour of 640x480 video with mono sound. Such tech is nothing new. And if I declared I were wearing it, I am quite sure it would also be banned from these meetings. As would a camcorder. Or a film crew. Or a dictaphone.

Keep ranting...

not all criminals have long hair,and trying to conceal them can make you look very suspicious.the others look bulky and give it away. this is supposed to be a mass appeal consumer device.

I've made two related points. The first is that Google are hypocrites for protecting their own privacy but not anyone else's. The second is that Google Glass is designed to undermine people's privacy in a way that smartphones never can. If you choose to buy an Android phone then you're happy to have Google access all your data and nobody else is affected. If you buy Google Glass then you're happy to invade other people's privacy. Everybody's but Google's that is.

you get mad if others see you with their eyes? That is invasion of privacy too really if you break down the actual action of it.

They're hypocrites because they're more than happy to ignore everyone else's privacy whilst protecting their own. All they've done here is highlight what a terrible idea Google Glass is.

So Google is forbidding others from forbidding Glass? Does not compute.

Did you look at the photo? With that device, it is not hard at all to conceal those wires. Shoulder length hair would be sufficient. And there are dumb criminals, and there are smart ones.

I think this article is ridiculous. In a lot of big cities around the world you are filmed 24h a day, wherever you go by CCTV cameras performing the SOLE function of "spying" on you. Saying Google Glass is an invasion of privacy is simply fear-mongering.

With regard to banning capture technology in a meeting with commercially sensitive information, that is completely normal. This would be akin to having people filming you in your bathroom - THAT would not be cool...
