They still haven't changed the default password of '321654'.
The young idiots with too much money buy them. They stomp on the gas at a green light and it sounds like they're drag racing. I gently touch the gas on my car and easily out-accelerated them without making any significant noise. I'll bet they figure it out about two or three days after they buy the trucks that they really have no acceleration or speed to speak of but rather simply noise.
I'm going to get in trouble for only commenting on one post rather than commenting on all of them.
They're actually tubes, not cables.
We'd probably have records with twenty parallel grooves and reading heads with 40 or more needles.
Every time those scientists haul out the clock metaphor I lose a ton of respect for them.
It needs B&M store shelf space. Put some marketing force behind it, maybe even TV and YouTube ads.
Remember it's only free for users of Windows 9.
This will be a revolution in medicine.
I'd think this would be easier to implement in the keyboard. More space. Mostly stationary.
You had to live in the US to buy one. Google is a worldwide company and if they wanted to sell a product they'd have sold it to their customers, not just a select few. It was a test product, not meant for the general public. Which is fine. I've never seen one anywhere. I'm guessing there are many other people, even in the US, that have never seen one either. It wasn't unpopular because of its characteristics, but rather because it wasn't marketed AT ALL.
But you have to 1 - already know that something called Google Glass exists. 2 - know what the hell it is. 3 - be willing to shell out a fortune for an in-development toy. Each of those is the complete opposite of how to successfully sell consumer electronics. Google always meant for this iteration of the product to be for testing only. For example, they weren't even selling it in Canada.
They never got it out of 'testing'. Chromecast is selling from Best Buy. Why isn't Google Glass sitting right next to it? Oh, it's because it's hardly even a beta product.
Until it's on a store shelf it isn't for sale. It was never advertized as a consumer product. It wasn't even promoted. To get it you had to go out of your way to even find out where you were supposed to get the damn thing.
Actually it's more like the old people staying at fancier hotels get this smug feeling of "My hotel has wifi, and it only costs an extra $20. This is awesome." Everyone else, mostly the younger crowd, are at cheaper places and know that wifi should be free so those hotels can't get away with screwing them.
