Its interesting to me how many people here pretty much just want to push anything to the absolute maximum. I bought this bandwidth I MUST be able to use to 24/7 at max level or its broken and I'm being ripped off! Not mentioning a limit on the marketing brochure != unlimited, you need to read the agreement for that. Plus I don't think there was a limit set based on the description of the call, the rep said that what he was doing was violating his TOS, he didn't say it was the usage level, it was all the other things that he was doing.
2) And now they recognized you....what do they do with that? Assuming they can Geo-code the hit that still means they just know who you are and where you are, it doesn't likely give them that much to use against you. Maybe you are in like at McDonalds and they'll find out about your secret love of crappy food but then what?
I'm all for having a critical eye to technology and its uses but it seems to be the glasses fears border closer to paranoia than real issue. Again if your concern is the creepy guy taking pictures of you bending over to tie your shoes then that makes a lot of sense though in the end if someone wants to look at my butt, I don't really care that much. If you are worried that the government will get some back door in the glasses that will allow them use their cameras as a massive surveillance network, then that makes a little sense..though I imagine people might start noticing if their batteries were dying in 10 minutes and their data usage were through the use due to constant on HD video feeds. But the omg the advertisers will use it to try and indoctrinate me into consumer culture....not sure I buy it.
