Eight months.

Every day.

All day?

Every day.

I had to traded for the new version.

And you where regular glasses.

It looks extra dorky on me because i have to have my prescription lenses on and then i have to put the glass on top when i get my new pair, i have already ordered it.

Google is designing these glass frames in house.

They are trying to get distribution from the stores.

They have eyeglass distribution.

They don't want to have to deal with the stores and have to give up another 30%. i think they want to distribution over the internet.

It is crazy to think of google getting into fashion eyewear.

This is the new growth area in the industry which is wearable.

Apple is working on a watch.

We're going to see a lot of new wearables and fashion will be a huge part of this.

Why did they hire the bur barry ceo?

They know that the things that you wear on you has to be fashionable.

And it has to be an expression of you.

The frames cost $226, are people going to buy this?

Not at this price level.

There are lots of nerds around who will buy it.

If it is going to go mainstream, the price has to come down.

I assume that it is going to be 3, 4. this comes down to the price levels.

I know that you love him.

You just read a posting, google glass is doomed.

Doomed in 2014. the expectations are out of whack.

If this becomes an argument about the apple iwatch versus google glass, google will lose big time because more people are willing to buy a watch.

The apple iwatch will outsell it may be 10-1. what are the big problems?

What are the big problems is facebook.

This is such a revolutionary new product that it is an unfinished product.

Talking is still not accurate as typing.

I want the photo to come to my phone where i can edit it.

Then uploaded to facebook and twitter.

Privacy is still an issue.

There is no light on their to tell you when you are doing something.

There is a light that you will see when i take a picture.

But i don't know if it is on the whole time.

I don't know how it works.

Those fears go away when more people get them and people can actually play with them and learn what the gestures are.

It's pretty easy to show somebody how it works and how to tell.

I am not worried about that.

I think think those go away over time.

It is a new scary controversy will product.

It is even more controversial
