When Google Glass first appeared, I found myself wondering, "Now what the hell is that for?" This after being convinced by two or three people that it was not, in fact, an attempt at sexy Borg cosplay. But as skeptical as I am of new technology, I have learned the hard way to be skeptical of my own skepticism. I remember resisting getting a cell phone (although admittedly, my main concern was that I was already available enough to the management at my day job, thanks). I also remember a toy company executive saying in the mid-1960s, "I think there is a world market for maybe five Etch-a-Sketches." Or...something along those lines.
Now I can't get through the day without my iPhone...mostly because I have a head like a sieve and it serves as my outsourced long term memory now. But instead of fumbling around in my pocket to grab my phone and responding to a text or checking my calendar...Google wants me to look slightly up to the right and then ask my glasses what's what.
