Sinister Google Glass

The latest slick new thing is here: Google Glass. Already being tested by happy hipster tech types, a mere $1,500.00 is worth the price. But for others, this is scary news.
Google Glass: Google's sinister glasses will turn the whole world into search giant's spies | Mail Online: Scott Cleland, an internet analyst, told me ‘creepy’ Google Glass technology represented the ‘ultimate escalation of Google’s privacy invasion’.

He says: ‘Say you’re huddled in Starbucks with your spouse and someone next to you is recording your conversation on Google Glass.

Remember, the glasses have no storage capacity so all the information goes directly back to Google’s huge data centres.’

Nick Pickles, of the UK privacy campaign group Big Brother Watch, says Google Glass ‘makes CCTV cameras look trivial . . . the person next to you isn’t just a commuter any more, they’re a Google agent’.

Conspiracy author Jon Rappoport has a lot to say on Google Glass.
For example:
Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Google, has famously said: “If you have something that you don’t want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place…and it’s important, for example, that we are subject in the Unite States to the Patriot Act.”

As the NSA captures everything Glass wearers are seeing in real time, Schmidt’s statement will take on added meaning, won’t it? Glass is the Brave New World snitch of snitches.
