I hope these things become mandatory to wear. You have no idea how quickly that would improve behavior of people in public (mostly the ones wearing it, but equally the ones not). Yes yes, privacy bla bla.

The presence of cameras hasn't really improved most other areas of society so I see no logical reason why this would. Putting a random face on the web without any accompanying identifiable information isn't an effective deterrent to people intent on destroying these things, go take a random photo to your local police station and see what they say they can do with it. Many in society will be sympathetic to the destroyer, not the 'victim' as people do not like being filmed without their consent. If you shove a camera in someones face at a bar you're likely going to be assaulted and don't count on witness statements or much help from the police unless you're seriously injured.

These devices will not be popular with women and are unlikely to gain much traction so it's much ado about nothing anyway.

Actually, crime across the board is at an all time low historically. Obviously the reasons are complex and varied, but the proliferation of recording devices is certainly a contributing factor.

It's a new age we're entering, and it will be interesting to see how societies deal with ever-diminishing privacy.

Sidenote: There is only one thing I hate more than invasion of my privacy (hence I am not getting google glasses ,p) and that's people condoning violence and vigilant justice.

Not sure Cutter was condoning it as much as simply describing what happened.

You can't stop technology progressing. Reality is if you wear it you are secure from idiots, because if they stop you and bother you their face is up on the web for everyone to see BEFORE they destroy the glasses.

In fact, as soon as there is some competition and the technology is more WI-FI and less phone dependent I am gonna get one

I dunno.
It seems more likely to be caught trying this with google glasses. I mean, it means you have to get your head down in a position to be looking up the skirt anyway.

ROFL, the excuse of picking up some change isn't going to really work there.

Seriously. I was in a bar one night when some perv was palming his cell camera trying to sneak upskirt shots of women in the bar. I confronted the asshole - rather violently and loudly - and the bouncer grabbed the guy while the bartender grabbed his phone to make certain he was doing what I claimed he was. And when they saw it was the case they - and one or two of the guys that were boyfriends of the women he had taken shots dragged the guy outside and beat the living shit out of him before the cops showed up. You just know this is going to be happening down the line with those things at some point.

Here comes all the GG banning. lol These things will get banned everywhere. Maybe they'll be used for specialty purposes like surgery, etc, but people wearing in public ain't gonna fly unless you want to wear them up your azz.

And a fledgling expansion to the porn industry is cut down before it started.

I think dropping the charges is the right thing to do. Trying to charge him with hacking was just wrong.
