Congresso USA scrive a Larry Page (Google) per l’uso dei Google Glass


by pio dal cin)  Otto membri (bi-partisan) del Congresso USA hanno inviato una lettera aperta al CEO di +Google  +Larry Page  affinchè chiarisca la posizione del colosso di Mountainview circa l’uso del Google Glass che dovrebbe essere messo in commercio prima della fine dell’anno.

Nelle otto domandeQui riportate in lingua originale  alcuni membri del Congresso chiedono a Larry Page di spiegare come la sua compagnia intende gestire il rapporto Glass/Privacy, visto che i Google Glass vengono portati come un normale paio di occhiali ed è difficile al momento stabilire fino a che punto possano ledere la privacy di chi viene inquadrato dalla fotocamera o dalla videocamera incorporata in questo hi tech gadget che una volta lanciato sul mercato avrà una popolarità pari solo a quella del PC o dei telefonini. Tutti sembrano desiderarlo prima ancora che esca sul mercato. Per ora solo pochi “eletti” i “glassexplorers” i pionieri del gadget a 1500$ al paio hanno potuto provare l’ebbrezza di fotografare o filmare scene quotidiane girate con il Glass. Alcuni chirurghi lo stanno usando come fonte immediata di informazioni durante le operazioni. Altri lo usano come strumento di lavoro.

Difficile dire cosa succederà, ma staremo attenti e seguiremo da vicino lo sviluppo di questa controversia che sta spopolando in questo momento sul web

Google.California Woman gets first ticket for driving with Google Glass


ceci glass

 

(by pio dal cin) Codognè Treviso  I hate to say that I said that but I saw it coming. If you care reading This old post of mine I predicted some troubles for Glass wearers. +Cecilia Abadie

has posted On her G+ profile of the ticket she got from a California Highway Patrol. Here is what she wrote:


” A cop just stopped me and gave me a ticket for wearing Google Glass while driving! 

The exact line says: Driving with Monitor visible to Driver (Google Glass).
Is #GoogleGlass ilegal while driving or is this cop wrong???
Any legal advice is appreciated!! This happened in California. Do you know any other #GlassExplorers that got a similar ticket anywhere in the US?”
 
Like it or not +Cecilia Abadie  became the first woman in history to get a ticket for wearing +Google  Glass.
Is +Larry Page  going to give a refund on the ticket? or +Vic Gundotra ?  This is going to be interesting to see in the future. Privacy breeches, people getting runned over as they cross busy streets in Manhattan while wearing the Glass. Eye doctors getting an increase of business for Glass wearers with cross eyed view and many more. I’m going to sit here and wait.

Google Glass banned in West Va, also in strip joints and theathres


(by pio dal cin) As +Google  Glass is being considered for ban in West Virginia as the laws reads
H.B. 3057, introduced in the West Virginia legislature a few days ago, looks to add language to existing rules on traffic safety to include a ban on “using a wearable computer with head mounted display,” described as “a computing device which is worn on the head and projects visual information into the field of vision of the wearer.” Another issue is raised what about strip joints?  NBC tech has a very  interesting article here about the places where the new “toy” from  +Google  is not going to be welcome.
Personally I raised the question a few days ago in one of my  Google plus post on and about the safety of the “Glass” worn by distracted people in Cities and bumping into each other or worst, getting runned over by trucks or taxicab as they will be distracted by this interesting object that is about to be   Launched by Google soon.
Only time will tell. So let us wait and see what the impact of this $1,500 is going to be when it will reach the US markets by the end of 2013 beginning of 2014
