I’m a gadget nerd, I’m fascinated by them and have spent way too much of my disposable income on them. So it pains me to say that I’ll probably never buy into Google Glass and this is why. Google Glass essentially puts an all hearing, all seeing recording device into your house that is connected to the internet. While this is scary in its own right, find the security flaw and a hacker in Russia is now in your house. It also makes it very easy for The Man to skirt around the 4th Amendment and if you think they won’t it’s already a priority.
So in the spirit of Sherman Hemsley‘s (better known as George Jefferson, less known for having an LSD lab in his basement) “Don’t answer the door because it might be the man” sign at his front door. I’m going to have a sign on mine that reads “Check your Google Glass at the door because it might be the man.”
