In Los Angeles, a woman named Cecilia Abadie received a moving violation for driving while wearing Google glass—a citation, as the Times puts it, usually given to drivers who may be distracted by a video screen.

She has pleaded not guilty…but she is guilty, guilty, guilty!


Not to mention that she could kill somebody.

Meanwhile, in Seattle, some other tech bonehead was asked to leave a restaurant because he refused to stop wearing his Google Glass.

Fascinating to me how Google is force-feeding a product to a culture that not only largely doesn’t seem to want it, but is now actively fighting it. I wonder if the Google folks are so isolated in a Goo-bubble that they have failed to anticipate this hostility–and don’t understand it.

Addendum: a Valleywag commenter has coined a term that must make Google nervous: “Glasshole.”
