Genomic medicine can be as simple as having your genome sequenced and interpreted by someone who knows what they're doing. Healthy people usually have several genetic polymorphisms or mutations, only some of which are significant, and sequencing can help you learn which genetic findings are significant health risks, and which are harmless. What you're talking about is gene therapy, which is a lot more involved.

Five years? In tech time, that's like the Pleistocene era! Good strategy for Google -- limit the supply for a ridiculously long time, making it invite-only to increase the recipients' impressions of a great favor having been bestowed on them -- all of which should increase demand over what it might've been if any old schlump could buy a pair. Too bad Google didn't think through the social side effects. How do you relate to someone who might or might not start recording you at any time without your knowledge? I'm not interested in buying a pair and being 'That Guy' (gal, in my case).
