Rumor. Mac Glassses.

to connect by wire or blue tooth to Iphone.

Lighter and runs faster than Google Glass because it uses the processors on the Iphone. Mostly uses the battery on the Iphone, which gives it longer usable time.

Fits with the curved glass patent. Only question being can it deliver a much finer display than Google Glass.

This give Apple a new product that simultaneously takes business from Samsung Smart Phone, Google Glass.

This is a rumor I have started, I have no reason to think Apple is about to do this.

Who here would want one? How much would you pay? What features make it as an absolute must have item?

Oh gods... please, no.


From the couple hands on reviews of Google Glass, I'm not sure that the "glasses" computer is one that's ready for prime time. The watch, sure. I live in rural Ohio, I can't imagine the rage when these people find out there's a camera in the glasses.

I'll take it one step further..while apparently wearable electronics are, according to some here, the future...the idea of wearing...er...not attractive stuff all over my body, rather than actually going through the horrible bother of using my phone, strikes me as beyond silly.

But then, I'm an old fart with strange, badly outdated ideas about how I want to look when I go out in public....more like an actual person than a walking electronics store.

There is no part of iGlass, or Google Glass for that matter, that doesn't reek of creeper tool.

100% with you on this. Got to have a little dignity in public.

I wouldn't be interested. I would buy an iWatch any day, but I can't see myself wearing something like iGlass or Google Glass.

Doesn't matter whether it's Google or Apple. The concept is creepy and a glass#ole is a glass#ole.

Well, apart from the fact that if you want to use it, you have to look up and shout "OK Glass! Take a picture!"

Until it gets hacked to respond to facial expressions or blinking or any number of options.

Don't know how, Since Glass has no camera to see your face.

Okay, so how about when they change the key word or phrase to take a picture. Something as innocuous as "Hello" or "Jeez it's hot out here" and boom picture taken.

There's something more stealthy.

Agreed.
Neither are things I would look into buying. I understand Apple is very mobile conscience, but this is pushing it.

Apple isn't doing glasses - remember? They did the eyePhone.

I can envision the iBall. With retina display. And facetime.

Neither the iWatch, iGlasses or Google Glass really excite me that much. The iWatch, well I already have a watch and on top of that I have a phone that already does everything that the iWatch can do anyway. Same applies to Google Glass.

Carry these concepts to their natural end: humans are going to be cyborgs soon, if we choose.

The warnings come from the bible and Hollywood... I think Apple may exist all over this galaxy.

Maybe this is some kind of invasion!
