  1. 1. I think the google glass is a great idea because it enables you to do everyday things while surfing the internet e.g you could be running on the treadmill while doing work on your google glass.

    2.There is a privacy issues with the google glass, anyone could be smart enough to hack the glasses and be able to view everything you are doing or have done.

    3. I would chat to people while i am doing something somewhere e.g boring meeting.

  2. Overall, the Google glass seems like a very creative idea, it would be an easier way to use the internet through voice control but at the same time could be harder to use the google glass then a normal computer. The Google Glass has it's positives and it's negatives. I believe that the privacy issues read in this article aren't a real issue. If you just bring them with you and no one would be able to look at it. I would only use the Google Glass if i can't be bothered to get off the couch and go the computer. So i wouldn't buy them for myself.

  3. Google Glass
    1. I do think Google glass is a good idea because you can browse the web without typing.
    2. I don’t think they are because you could probably already do all of that with a mobile phone.
    3. If I had a pair of Google glass I would watch videos on it and surf the web.

  4. I think it's a great idea for 3 reasons 1. its practical 2. its awesome and 3. it looks like something from dragon ball z.

    sure there are going to be privacy issues but it's connected to the internet nothing is private on the internet.

    If i had a pair i would scan the internet for recipes of various mexican foods and watch youtube.

  5. I think it is a good idea. Get anti-hack software so they don't hack you and keep what you google privet. I would wear them everywhere.

  7. I see where Google are trying to go with this but I agree with the media. according to the article the technology has the ability to match people by clothing and with the vast availability of online information resources thais can be a privacy issue. If I were to own a pair of Google Glasses I would link it to my future "to be purchased" phone for calls texts and light internet searching. But for me personally I just don't the point in owning a pair.

  8. Great idea but not when your driving, It would be way to distracting and would take your eyes of the road, But everything else would be amazing.

    You would have to get anti hacking software though, otherwise anyone can get into your glasses.

    I would not get a pair though, it would be to distracting when dong activities/jobs.

  9. i think google glass is a good idea it enables people to not have to carry a phone around in their bags or pockets but it does bring concern what about different schools with no phone in the school yard polices it wouldn't work and driving and even making phone calls if there wasn't an ear piece people would hear the whole conversation so privacy would be a big issue as well.

    2 - no, if they were are then phones with cameras would be too
    3- i would wear them

  12. i love the idea but the process of taking a photo is not very noticeable and all it takes is a wink to take a photo without permission, so therefore if i saw someone walking down the street with them i would turn around and walk away from them because you never know what they could be doing.

  13. 1. I do I think it’s a big step up from anything else in technology its no big and bulky and it fits on your face comfortably its easy to use .
    2. I don’t thin the privacy situation is a big deal people already walk around and video tape what there doing when they walk around in the streets and its no different from that.
    3. I would use them when I’m going back and from my dads to make the trips easier and when I have to go shopping for clothes I wouldn’t use them at home because I would rather my computer still.

  16. 1. Do you think Google Glass is a good idea? Why / Why not?
    I think it is an ok idea, but at first it might be faulty and have bugs. I think it will get better later on.

    2. Are the privacy issues discussed in The Age article a real issue?
    yes, you would need to get a software for anti hacking

    3. What would you do with a pair?
    nothing really. i might just try it out and see what it can do

  17. I think that the new Google Glass is a good idea because it makes multitasking easier. For example, people can make handsfree calls, search the web, take photos or even make a post on Facebook using only their voice. This then gives them the flexibility to walk around or drive while using Google Glass. This means that people can get more done in a smaller time frame.

    Yes, the privacy issues with Google Glass are an issue, because I know that I would not like some random taking a photo or multiple photos of me without me knowing. I also wouldn't like people being able to easily search me on the internet without them even knowing who I am, just by searching by my clothes, body shape and motion patterns like the app designed for Google Glass 'Insight' does. That is just a bit creepy.

    If I had a pair of Google Glass, I would use them to help me multitask. I would use them to find out more information when I am visiting somewhere that I don't know much about. I would use them to translate things when I go on a holiday to somewhere that doesn't speak English.

  18. 1. I have many opinion about Google Glass and i am very Undecided about it being a great idea or not, but what i do know is that Google Glass can be very useful for good and bad reasons, it can record high-definition video which can be recorded out on the streets, this can be good and bad in many ways. anyway i think it is easy to use and it can do very well for people.

    2. Yes a big issue anyone can hack into the device and see what you have been doing on it, something should be done to prevent this.

    3. I would serf the net, talk to friends and record stuff when i am out doing sport, for e.g. Biking, Soccer and other.

  19. 1. I think Google Glass is a great idea and is something that should be worked and developed on. But, the downside is that if it's not done right, it will be a great idea that's gone to waste.

    2. Yes, I think the privacy worry is an issue, but I agree that they should be allowed to produce them if there are surveillance cameras and phones with cameras.

    3. If I had them, I would probably just use them on holidays to get information about what I was looking at. I may surf the internet in public, and talk to friends via some sort of chat.

  20. It think it could be a good idea, if google dont go mad with it, they need to know that there are limits, like identifying people by clothes and movements is creepy........soooo creepy

  21. 1. Google glass is a great idea, if used correctly. They are a start to a new technological age. They should not make Google glass go too far though.

    2. Yes. There will be people that will figure out how to hack in. However, if they can find a way to cut the hacking, it will be ok.

    3. I'm not sure what I would do with a pair. Maybe just use them for internet.
