Does it register what you are doing? Is it watching YOU? is it Big Brotherish? Am I paranoid? If I am does mean I'm wrong to ask what I ask? In these times when even the government doesn't see anything wrong with "spying" on anybody and depends on corporations like Google, Facebook, Verizon, ATT to inform them about things we do if they ask, shouldn't be be concerned about these kinds of technologies without laws to protect us and our privacy?!

Google glass and subsequent variants, probably will be an epoch maker..cell phones, tablets, and pc's may become redundant in a few years.

How do you control it? How do you input? With voice alone?

Josh's article is one of the best out there about Google Glass. It does a great job at describing all the advantages of it, and suggests really well some of the issues that are being discussed about it.
