Google Glass Explorers We Knew We'd Be Mocked By The Daily Show

Google Glass Explorers On The Daily Show

As you may have seen by now, Google Glass Explorers were on The Daily Show, in a segment named Glass Half Empty. In short, it severely mocks Google Glass owners who were physically targeted for wearing Google Glass. It then goes on to mock them, Google Glass and everything about their situation.

Watch it:

I asked one of the Explorers in a Google+ thread if they knew this going into it. Cecilia Abadie said "we did knew we would be mocked." But what she didn't expect was that they use "misinformation" to mock them.

She added:

I personally expected more from them, except that when we were half way there we knew nothing serious or smart would show, that just wasn't their angle.

Personally, I take off Glass when I walk into certain places.

Personally, If I could get one, I'd only take it off where mobile phones e.t.c. where also restricted. There is literally no difference between that and having a mobile phone in your chest pocket, let alone thousands of the perfectly legal spy cameras that look like say a pen.

G$$gle is uncool period. I will NEVER EVER fly Virgin again seeing that they now use Glass to spy on their customers. Virgin, is now uncool too. Mess with G$$gle and and uncoolness strikes hard! Richard Branson should be taking notes

"having a mobile phone in your chest pocket" huh? It would have to be taped to your chest with duct-tape and recording and transmitting images ALL THE TIME to be anything close to glass Either way, I would love to see you walking the streets and bars with your cell duct-taped to your chest. Good way to pick up boys that way Spy cameras = Glass Spy cameras user = Paranoid, sneaky, nerdy, asholes

No difference. Only a true glasshole would say that.

Though it doesn't transmit images all the time... the battery would die out way too quickly

Whats the actual difference then? The glass will record exactly the same way the camera will. Try an actual argument instead of just an insult next time. It would make you look less like a complete twat.

No, you can record quite happily with it sitting in your pocket, I've produced some decent videos like that for events I'm involved with. I would suggest keeping your duct tape fantasies to yourself however. Glass does transmit image all the time, this shows your lack of knowledge. Even in record mode as far as I'm aware its not transmitting them, just storing them locally exactly like a camera. If someone has Glass on, its blatant. You know you might be filmed, exactly like a video camera. If they have a camera in their pocket or a spy camera, you can film them WITHOUT them knowing.... yet you are calling the Glass worse? Sounds like another case of 'yo momma''s Google envy/butt-soreness. What did Google do to you? Ban your spam site?

What did G$$gle do? G$$gle promoted its huge $250k initial investor AMAZON over and above all other retailers. G$$gle is a terrible company that has destroyed small businesses and promotes big businesses G$$gle helps those that invest in their ADWORDS scam G$$gle is a nasty uncool company G$$gle Glass is now used by Virgin airlines, which has now become uncool too I used to like Amazon, but since I found out about the G$$gle relationship, I will not purchase from them again This is what I have done to help G$$gle

1> Nope, they were there naturally. They didn't need to promote them. Lots and lots of content. I'm sure your butt-hurt will make you believe otherwise but thats up to you. 2> Nope, Google hasn't destroyed any small business. The only businesses destroyed were ones that destroyed themselves because even after been told multiple times to not rely solely on Google traffic, they did anyway. But hey, blame Google for something they had no control over. 3> Google helps adwords investors WITH adwords, not with organic. We spend a fair bit with adwords so know you don't get any organic boost from adwords. 4> Ah, back to insult with no meaning or reason again. Back to butt-hurt again. What was your spam site that got banned again? 5> Hate to say it, but you not liking something doesn't make it 'uncool'. That would require you been 'cool' which clearly isn't true. 6> Thats basically discrimination. You are admitting you don't actually have a reason, but you are doing it anyway. No real reasons there whatsoever, so I'm still fairly sure you've had your crappy spam site banned and are just butt-hurt.

Baby, ur way up there. So far, so far up G$$gle's ass you will never see the light or reason in anyone's opinion or argument. And kudos The Daily Show for showing how insanely stupid glass and the 'explorers' are - seriously "we are explorers" - bunch of whiners wanting to sneak secret videos and post them on youtube, another ass suck G$$gle disaster. Every tried vimeo?

Care you come up with an answer that actually involves common sense? I realise this will be a challenge for you, but please try. Name one way in which Google glass is better for taking secret videos than the hundreds of concealed cameras, including wearable ones which look like pens, hair-pins e.t.c. You can't. Its that simple. You are talking BS because you don't like Google. Every-time you type, you reveal that you don't have a legitimate grievance against Google, you are just butt-hurt over something that was probably your own fault in the first place.

"We can Help"?? Benjamin baby. You can help? Dude, you have zero control over what G$$gle does, NONE So tell me with all your expert savvy you offer on your SEO web, how can you in all honesty help?

You're an idiot You're an idiot wearing a G$$gle Glass

Ben Guest

06/17/2014 04:08 pm

I prefer Benjammin'. :-D You are absolutely correct mamma regarding the no controlling the Goog, however, we can control the websites. You can continue to wave your G$$gle flag, however, I do have evidence to prove otherwise. And this evidence is enough for my eyes only to keep trucking along in this technical marketing arena. I'll just continue to pray, send positive thoughts or whatever it is you prefer, that one day, you get it too. And if you want to compete with Amazon, bring me a $578 million marketing budget and we'll go head to head with them.

StevenLockey asks for an answer from Yo Mamma "Name one way in which Google glass is better for taking secret videos than the hundreds of concealed cameras" Glass shows no outside indication that its recording and its forever pointing in the direction of the object its attempting to record. Your reference to "butt-hurt" must indicate that you are knowledgeable in this area and who would know more than anyone or anything else about butt-hurts???? Gay men I guess thats you then steven with locks

Good on you mate. Keep praying to your god. My God doesn't give a crap about prayers mate

Neither do any of the other concealed cameras. You have failed, yet again. At worst that makes it the same, more likely it still makes it better because you still know there is a camera there even if it isn't recording. With concealed cameras, you don't even know there is a camera there. Also for it to be 'forever pointing in the direction', the user has to sit there staring at them, which is fairly noticeable on it's own. And now adding homophobia? Yeah...... And while yes I do have long hair, I'm not gay. Oh and yes, I've got quite a lot of experience with butt-hurt, after all I've read quite a few of your 'comments'

Yo Mamma

06/18/2014 11:33 am

Thanks for your admission steven with locks. You admit that G$$ge ass, I mean glass, is akin to a SPY CAMERA, which takes us all the way back to my statement a few days ago, namely Spy cameras = Glass Spy cameras user = Paranoid, sneaky, nerdy, asholes

StevenLockey

06/18/2014 12:51 pm

Why yes it is. So is a mobile phone. So is any portable camera. So why the exception to Google glass? This isn't even getting into the number of hidden CCTV cameras all over the place.

Why in the world would I want to take a picture or record Yo Mamma? People need to get over themselves and accept the technology. Oh my privacy! Go lock yourself in your bathroom then.

Oh don't be so pessimistic, you could always try getting an education!

Yo Mamma

06/19/2014 11:39 am

To fix stupid steven with locks suggests "you could always try getting an education" Now that is a winner! Stevey baby Getting an education will only make you more educated, an academic, you know, taking a course I have yet to find a course offered by educators that teaches one COMMON SENSE. I personally don't need it because I am born with it, a natural if you will. But I am sympathetic to those like you that haven't been endowed with such a blessing. A course that you start off without COMMON SENSE and when passing at the end you magically have acquired COMMON SENSE. It simple doesn't exist. Why? Because it cannot be taught and you will never learn it. Having COMMON SENSE is beyond your reach, a pipe dream and in so lacking in COMMON SENSE it will affect every aspect of your miserable existence. Its the same with stupidity

StevenLockey

06/19/2014 01:08 pm

For someone who can't even form proper sentences, its rather rich you are insulting other people's intelligence. Amusing, but somewhat ironic. BTW, common sense isn't the same as intelligence either. Very different things, some of the most intelligent people in the world have little common sense.

Yo Mamma

You may not care about YOUR privacy, but you are making a decision for your daughter when she isn't of the age to do so for herself. Little irresponsible of you dad. (ref your picture with your daughter) Have you ever thought that she may not want her profile splashed all over the world before she is even a teenager? WTF dude

Ben Guest

06/20/2014 01:33 pm

I would love to cut my daughter's hair and get my son back but it fits his personality. He's a rocker, surfer dude. Ok, what about the creep sitting in his car, filming playgrounds? Creepy people are going to be creepy with whatever device they have. People really need to get over this Google Glass thing. trust me. When I wear mine, I'm not recording or taking photos of you. I'm not creepy.

Ben Guest

06/20/2014 01:34 pm

You probably blame the guns and drugs, too, huh? It's people. not the device on their heads. Come on bro. You know this, mmmaaannn.
