Until the battery acid leaks out and burns your eye. (I suppose there has to be some sort of power source in it, right?)

AppleCare+ will now cover two replacement eyes (with a deductible, of course).

Hopefully they don't take too much out of my wallet since I won't be able to tell how much I am forking over if I am blinded by the Google glass contacts.

Many more times. I'm not faulting Apple. It's not easy coming up with fresh ideas every 6 months. Well, *good* fresh ideas.

Google are trying something new and disruptive. We'll see if it works and catches on, then pass judgment
ok.... but you don't have to be a genus to wonder where the Maps are gonna come from, where are ads gonna come from...and lets not forget picture-in-picture.

What about for people wearing glasses with corrective lenses.

Am I the only one noticing that this product does not seem to be geared to about 65% of the adult population of the US who wear glasses with corrective lenses on a daily basis.

If Google's promo photos and videos are to be believed, Google Glass is only targeting beautiful 20-something fashion models.

They are researching to make them suitable for prescription lenses

This is a real product that is being produced in limited numbers for a select few beta testers and developers.
I'm in Vegas it's not at the Mall = Vaporware.
