FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

http://www.thestreet.com/story/11850432/1/watch-out-for-google-glasses.html

Having read the article above, I genuinely believe that the person writing it accidently watched the Watch_Dogs trailer instead of the Google Glasses one. For serious.

Basically it's the paranoid tale of someone who thinks Google Glasses will allow you to see every intimate detail about a person simply by looking at them. They think that they will have facial recognition software that can display Facebook information about a person simply by looking at them. For example in a bar, you can find out if that hunky guy works on Wall Street or at Walmart.

Not only is this insane, but its insane! If you actually watch the Google Glasses commercial, it's basically a camera, with the basic functions of an android smartphone. Most notably Google Maps giving you directions, and the genius new Google Now which can show you all kinds of information about stores and weather and whatever else you want. I think she is interpreting the fact that GPS allows it to know where you are and use that to provide information... to this being Cortana intelligently interacting with your surroundings.

The only really valid point made in the article is that with them on, you never know when you are being filmed or photographed. Lots of people don't like having their pictures taken, so this is always a fear, but seriously even now I'm sure people could follow you around with a cell phone all day and you'd barely notice.

Anyway I get that this is barely related to video games, other than the fact that if you read it, she is definitely talking about Watch_Dogs... but the main connection for me is how so many people are so out of touch with technology, that they fear it. Which is exactly why video games get blamed for bad things that happen.
