Google Glass

Advertising and Internet search giant Google is set to roll out the much-hyped Google Glass. If you haven’t heard about Google Glass yet, you will.

The futuristic frames will allow the wearer to, among other things, record your image and your conversations without your permission. Sure, anyone can surreptitiously record or videotape you by using their smart phones, but Google Glass puts this technology literally in your face.

Google Glass

Conspiracy theorists and alarmists are already comparing Google Glass to the ultra spy technology that George Orwell foretold in his classic book 1984 (published in 1949).

The Google Glass wearer can videotape you and, in the blink of an eye, upload the footage to Instagram or Facebook.

Maybe it’s the fear of losing the last remaining vestiges of privacy we have left that’s spurring intense public opposition to the ‘Glass’.

Some business owners have already posted signs banning the ‘Glass’ from their establishments before the digital frames have even hit retail stores.

“They argue, rightly, that this is more than just a question of privacy,” writes Telegraph.UK, a British newspaper.

“You can see the marketing already – Glass is all-knowing. The issue is that to be all-knowing, it needs you to help it be all-seeing. If choice is an illusion created between those with power and those without, then Google Glass goes to the heart of what it is to live in a digital world and what it is to exercise choice about your privacy.”
