The first thing to spring to mind about false positives is they'll (in most cases, one would hope) be pulled aside and questioned, while the Glass runs a more in-depth analysis of their face rather than just the quick scan necessary to look out over a crowd. Various science-fiction movies and shows already give ideas in this regard, I believe. It's not like computerized facial recognition when a police officer looks at you is a new idea.

Not entirely sure what you mean by downloading offline, whether you mean pirating for offline use or buying at a store.

Yes, let's go back in time twenty years to when brick and mortar stores were all the rage rather than following technological evolution because a few powerhouse ISPs want to have their cake and eat it too.

It's not just movies, though Netflix has been the visible player in all of this.

Imagine if Valve and Comcast can't reach an agreement. Whoops, suddenly your Steam library downloads at 10 KB/s. Or that MMO you play, their latest 10 GB download for the next expansion comes down at that speed because you're with Time Warner. Wanna try out a beta for a game? No agreement signed, you'll be ready to play in a week.

This is not just solved by RL rental stores or pirating. Oh, and if this non-neutrality goes through, rest assured that P2P can suddenly be throttled to effectively a trickle.

Do not underestimate the value of print statements for debugging.
