    The myglass iOS app doesn't let you do everything an Android phone does. Can anyone with a Jailbroken iphone look in Cydia and see if there's anything in there regarding google glass? Thanks, I don't have a comp only an ipad. So I can't jailbreak my 5S right now to see.

    Oh, if it was free, then why not? I thought you might have actually paid for it.

    How? :)

    I wouldn't buy one, but it would be fun to play around with.

    That wasn't creepy at all... :confused:

    ----------

    Wow, so it went from a $1500 value to a $250 value... that's right there alongside Dell and HP in resale value. No wonder they killed the sales. LOL

    Where can you get a Nexus 6 for $250?

    I personally would love to have Googleglass for recording my children handsfree, but $1,500 is very steep!

    Nope, can't find not one Nexus 6 for $250. All were in the $500 - $700 range.

    I know you like iPhone, but you don't have to defame the Nexus to prove it.

    That's rubbish. I bought my Nexus 6 for $350 ... and that was almost brand new.

    Nobody is going to pay $700 on craigslist for a nexus that retails for $640

    Not sure why you're trying to start an argument here... there never has been an Android phone that holds value comparatively to an iPhone...

    6 months into release, a Nexus goes for half it's retail price. 6 months into release, iPhone goes for maybe 20% off retail. You can call me defamatory all you want, but it's reality, like it or not.

    ----------

    THIS is why it never took off. The objective wasn't that Glass was a camera\video recorder... but this is what people saw it as... primarily because that was the issue the media was so focused on (rightfully so).

    It's a sub-par camera and sub-par video recording device. If your first thought as to use for Glass is a hands-free recording device, you're exactly why the product's marketing failed.

    They are easily had here in the $300-500 range, so I guess it would be comparable to a Nexus 6... maybe prices are better here (San Francisco) since it's more of a technology hub than wherever it is you live...

    Free is about right because google just ended the program two weeks ago. I would get the nexus 6 back because its worth more.

    This comment sparked my curiosity... I know Glass is somewhat like Siri where there's a backend system that supports it... did Google end the entire operational support, so in other words the existing users have a useless device, or are they still supporting it so those with them can use all of the features offered with the rollout?

    EDIT: I'm guessing they're significantly crippled, because here in SF I'm seeing them sold "brand new" for less then $300 in some cases. Guessing a lot of Google employees trying to make money. Surprised their company allows them to do that... but then again if they were on the Glass dev team they may not be employees anymore, hahahaha

    Buy a gopro and mount it on a strap that goes around your head. It'll still look better than glass.

    Agreed, and the quality will be near-professional 4k compared to the fake-720p on the Glass.

    Heck no, that nexus 6 was horrible. After I got glass, used it for a while then sold it on Craigslist. Now waiting for Applewatch.
