распродажа, натурально:

Tomorrow, April 15, Google Glass will finally go on sale to the public.

Granted, you’ll have just one day to buy it, and supplies will be limited. That’s the kind of sales tactic any company would use to pressure you into buying a shiny, new toy you don’t really need.

как говорится, если за вашими продуктами не выстраиваются очереди, остается только создавать их искусственно.

и дальше[1] еще точнее:

If you think this is a device that will make you look cool and forward-thinking, you’ve been misled by Sergey Brin. It will make you look like a robot, a dork, and, well, a Glasshole. Instead of looking at you with envy and awe, your peers will regard you with suspicion (is she taking a video of me?) and annoyance (running the gamut from “watch where you’re going!” to “you people are what’s wrong with this town!”).


  1. дальше, впрочем, будет так:

    Google has a new patent application with the USPTO, which takes one of the basic concepts of Glass and extends it even further, embedding tiny cameras that could be embedded in contact lenses for various uses, including photographing what a wearer sees, or providing the basic input for a contact-based assistive device for the visually impaired.

    scary enough?  ↩
