    Apple did Car interfaces and then Google came out with Android Drive. DO you think Apple would follow suit with a Google glass competitor?

    I don't think even Apple has the clout to have people dabble in face tech it's just not that appealing look at the ear bud craze a decade ago it fizzled out quickly

    It just seems to me no one enjoys wearing gear around the face area unless it's for music

    And, besides, Google Glass hasn't even been released to the public and yet stories have surfaced on how the wearers got attacked..

    I don't think it's the same. Google's face computer is attempting to solve a problem that I do not have. It is not a problem for me at all to reach into my pocket and pull out my smart phone. The smart phone solved a real problem; dumb phones couldn't do things people wanted to do mobile. The iPhone solved a problem; made the smart phone usable to the masses.

    What does Google Glass solve? I have eyes to interface with the world. I have two pocket computers that do everything Google Glass can do. The only thing IMO Google Glass "solves" is Google's problem of getting people to pay for their products. It creates a problem for me because now my wallet is $1500 lighter.

    Yeah. What Sting said speaks volumes to what my thought process has been on Google Glass. "What exactly would I need it for?" I don't like the concept of Google Glass or any of this recorded tracking.

    What use would something like Google Glass bring to you? Just for discussion purposes. Not trying to argue.

    I understand. I'm still trying to figure out why I need two cars. LOL. Over the years I have purchased MANY things that I don't really need or had any use for....LOL. I really don't need or have a use for them, but I'm not ruling out the possibility of having a pair. You never know.

    I agree. There just isn't any practical use for it other than to do pov video recording but that would be a really niche use for it that I would have. I'm still getting used to having my Pebble and I think I can truthfully say I have a need for it now.

    Who knows, maybe Google Glass would be the same..

    Yeah. The watch thing I just cannot grasp. Mostly because I hate wearing a watch. It feels like overkill. I feel like if I started using one then I'd start becoming a slave to my own tech.

    I don't GET smartwatches, and I don't see myself ever owning one (unless something like the Garmin Approach since it's for golf and serves a real purpose). My beef with them is that they're inconvenient. They're just a middle man. Let's say I have a smartwatch paired to my phone. I get a message. I check the smartwatch for the message, then I have to go to my phone to do something. The smartwatch creates an extra step because there's nothing you can actually do with the notifications and information you get.

    Or let's say you want to check the weather. You can do that on a smartwatch, but the detail is so little that you're pretty much forced to check your phone for an hourly forecast or something that will actually be useful. I don't think smartwatches are useful. They're more of a nuisance.

    There's just too many who have to have every new gadget that comes out. Apple and every other tech company know this. So they keep making new gadgets. I'm just gonna strap my iPhone to my wrist. Maybe buy an 8 gb 4s for that. Then later, I'll have my 5.5" 6 to carry in my cargo Pants. But I don't see iSpecs. Glass ain't selling exactly like hot cakes.

    Something Like the martian Notifier makes sense to me. A watch thats a watch mainly and with smartwatch capabilities second. It has a two year battery life and a 5 day one for smart side and it looks like a watch. There really is no need to push the boundaries of what a watch can do really because its a timepiece. Methinks maybe a minimalist approach with a plethora of features discreetly hidden would be the best bet

    A smartwatch basically takes away the pain of having to pull my phone out every few seconds, so I like it.
