We are Borg.



Do you think this sort of tech will take off, or is it just a novelty?

It's for people who can't wait to get brain cancer. Cell phones, computers and tablets just can't deliver carcinogenic waves as quickly as through the eye socket.

At best, it turns people into walking targets for advertisements and other forms of brainwashing..

I feel like I am already over-entertained, meaning I spend too much of my time being entertained.

I noticed a couple of years ago that technology has now surpassed mankind's ability to creatively make use of its potentials. Basically, our tech level is higher than our creative abilities.

Everything you could possibly want to do with sound, for instance, can now be done, short of it coming to life in a visual, 3-d sort of way.

I think Navy SEALS, SWAT and other tactical outfits could probably make use of a hands-free information accessor, but what does Jimmy Q. Hipster really need Google Glass for, other than to look like the coolest douchebag on the block?

Come on, don't you want an app to perform real-time facial recognition, so that you can be reminded of people's names? Or what about when you're downtown clubbing, and it can give you real-time data about the various slutes in your vicinity, and whether or not they are clean? You know you want that, just as much as you want to watch a straight-to-DVD movie starring Christian Slater, Val Kilmer, and 50 Cent.

I am conflicted about this technology. I'll have to see what happens when Murph gets one.
