Google may open Glass Explorer program to all U.S. residents for one day [UPDATED] | Android and Me. I can't believe I'm saying this; but, a brand new gadget is going to be available for one day on the 15th, and I don't want one. First, it is Google Glass, the gadget everyone loves to hate. Second, it costs $1,500, which is more money than many people make in a month. Third, friends don't let friends wear Glass. Fourth, buying a pair of these is like buying a Hummer when gas costs $4.00 a gallon. Fifth, well, I could go on; but, there is a limit even to cool tech, isn't there? Google, get rid of the camera, or put a red blinking light on the front. Bring the price down to $400 or less. Make the device a combination between a SmartWatch and a Bluetooth earset, and I will consider it. There is a big difference between smart tech that keeps me informed about my surroundings and enhances my productivity, and tech that invades others' expectation of privacy. Until then, don't dare wear a pair of these in my vicinity.
