The Daily Show Rips These Guys a New Glasshole
Holy crap, have you guys seen this yet? The Daily Show's Jason Jones did a segment from San Francisco with people who claim they've been discriminated against because they wore Google Glass, and yes, Sarah Slocom is among them – and then just nails them on everything from privacy issues around surreptitiously filming people to asking why the hell you need Google Glass. In my favorite part of the segment, Jason says, "Let's put aside that these things are just fucking stupid. What is it about this [looks down at his phone] that seems too much for you?" Another guest talks about how Google Glass is best used with apps that create an "interface between you and the real world." "Do you hear yourself talk?" Jones asks, "An interface between you and the real world. Those are called eyes." Brutal, and pretty hilarious.
