haha.. this was in the haight. They will scream any random crap there. Though to be honest.. I don't wear my glass there myself, because well.. how to put this.. the area is "full of character". you are either living under rent control, or paying 3500 a month for a 1 br.. or homeless if you live in the area. Think poor real hippies clashing with rich technohippies, as an extremely broad representation.. there are of course the dealers and hookers that just want out of the fight. Though the latter has made the case that technically they could call it "pornography" if their customer was wearing a glass.
I doubt most people realize that the glass is tied to my google account, and essentially is a chunk of plastic you could use to check my e-mail if you stole it, and that's about it.. but that's not gonna stop someone whose plan is to trade it down the street for some weed.
If anything(and having to guess), the reference there was not towards the individual, but the person assumed they were a google employee. Who is opening dev centers all over the city. The moment that that happens the cost of living in that area goes up, because the google employees want to live near work. If you own a building in sf, and you can get 2-3 million for it today, and let the "next guy" deal with evicting the current residents under a loophole that allows that and bringing in the 3,500 a month per tenant people. or continue to make 300 dollars a month off of the three tenants you have. whatcha gonna do?
facts about google glass:
#1 it can record for a total of 45 mins before the battery dies if the battery is at 100% capability(not capacity.. batteries degrade), on a cold day(so it doesn't melt the side of your face off)
#2 a bar.. with no flash, HAHA yeah.. if you can make out an individual bar patron, let alone the person you were actually attempting to take a picture of, good luck
#3 again, bars aren't well known for their lighting.. you're going to see the person's right eye "glowing" when they are taking their naughty pictures.. or checking the time, or perhaps they just laughed really hard and that activated it.
knowing the haight it went down something like this.
random person: hey, is that google glass?
random person: how do ya like it?
glasshole: insert positive or negative stuff here
otherbarfly: ohh, google.. those things are stupid
glasshole: decides to speak up/out against barfly, instead of saying to themselves.. hey, this is escalating
barflys: start with the mob rule
glasshole: "gets uncomfortable" and retaliates, verbally and childishly
mob rule wins
