Are Google Glasses Good?

On KTRS today, I talked with Todd Bishop of Geekwire about some of the concerns being raised about Google Glasses (which haven't even gone onsale yet!), including:
  • privacy issues regarding being recorded in public without your knowledge;
  • Google and other companies using facial recognition software to add to the large amount of data they already know about you;
  • the annoyance of trying to have a conversation with someone paying more attention to the image in their lens than to you;
  • the Seattle bar that has already banned customers from wearing Google Glasses on the premises.
I also asked Todd about Samsung's new phone screen which will watch your eye movements and scroll accordingly, and whether the Bezos Beep will replace the Galaxy bump.
