Robert Scoble5,511,911+Thomas Hawk and I are talking about how the filters work on Facebook and why they aren't as nice to photographers as Google+ is. Which got me a ton of questions about my feed, and what I'm seeing/learning about how the filters work and how to "game" them to get things through to more people's feeds on Facebook.I'm linking to here from Facebook, so there. This one is for the Facebook fans (or haters)2014-08-07 01:11:30140G+

The general plan is similar to previous meet-ups, and includes a mixture of dining, photography, theme park , and shopping options. Some gatherings are free, the theme park will require a ticket purchase, but you can pick and choose to attend any individual component you wantI created a quick guide:  https://docs.google.com/document/d/1CDAu5lawYKnGsHSiVvxdHvqkI3jblO9V0U-55XYbg3YNote 1:_ I have split this event into two adjacent events. There is a separate event for the Orlando Glass Meet-up on Friday evening at BJ's Restaurant.

We need to be at the park at 8am for the opening so the breakfast has been moved to Sunday morning. We'll take breaks, but plan plan to be hot and tired by the time we close out._PLANNED SCHEDULESATURDAY 3/16 8:00am DISNEY HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS "STAR WARS"(requires admission & parking)The entire park will be filled with costumes, photo ops, storm troopers, celebrity booths.

Sherman in celebration the 50th anniversary of “it’s a small world,”® the classic Disney Parks attraction that opened as a salute to UNICEF (United Nations Children's Fund) and children around the world at the 1964 New York World’s Fair. Want a chance to appear in the Hangout as a featured participant? Ask your question in the Q&A app and we may pick you! Feeling a bit camera shy but still have a great question to ask? No problem! You can still ask it in the Q&A app or Tweet it using #SmallWorldHangout - our moderator will be asking Mr. Sherman a selection of the best fan-submitted questions during the Hangout! Fans around the world are also invited to join the global sing-along by visiting www.SmallWorld50.com - a “global hub” of music and harmony where guests may record videos of themselves singing the classic song and create virtual “it’s a small world” dolls to benefit UNICEF.Disney Parks presents: Richard M.

This does not require a park ticket to join, and is an open area casual food court (that does offer Mickey Waffles). When you arrive at the hotel just tell the security guard you are having breakfast in Sassagoula's. We'll probably be in the back, so just look for people wearing Google Glass. I also have some unimportant swag to give away. We can also take a group photo outside before we break for Epcot. 11:00 *Epcot* We'll run over to the Epcot Food & Wine Festival. Requires park admission ticket purchase and $15 parking. Those that join us will eat, drink and #GlassExplore the countries of Epcot and all the festival kiosks.

No end time; no commitments. :-) *After Party?* There is discussion that some people might head over to Universal Citywalk Rising Star after 6pm for some live band Karaoke."Glass Around The World" (2nd Orlando Meet-up)2013-10-19 08:30:0015G+
Keith Barrett1,174,461Meet for lunch (and maybe things after) in Epcot at the Sunshine Seasons food court (lower level of "The Land" pavilion). Requires you can enter the park to meet up. There are many things we can try 1. Get a fast past to Soarin' (if they are available). I can ask the cast member to take a photo of us all lined up in the seating.  The same thing at Test Track is also possible. 2. No one has recorded Glass video of "Listen to the Land" or the "Universe of Energy" yet. 3. Sit in a circle and each take a photo of their perspective. We can then stitch them together later. 4. We can all play and record the "Agent P" game (formally Kim Possible). 5. We can take over the English Pub or have margaritas in Mexico. Make sure your Glass is charged up :-)Orlando 1st Google Glass Meetup (Epcot)2013-09-01 12:00:009G+

You Only Need ONE Blade To Shave

I remember when SNL made fun of the idea of 3 blade razors with the "triple track" blade. Reality is that no blade pulls hairs so a second one, quite a distance away at the scale, can cut it closer, even with just 2 blades. The commercial just made fun of the whole idea multiple blades are better when it was obviously a marketing gimmick.

Now you can buy razors with FIVE blades. Why? Because people are stupid and blade manufacturers can charge even more. The current generation of shavers have no experience shaving with a single blade or even a non-disposable razor (we use to put our own blades in razors). A single razor blade costs just cents to produce, and shaving is a simple hygienic task, but I see multi-blades in the store for over $20 sometimes.

The irritating thing is that it's getting hard to find normal 1 or even 2 blade razors. They take them off the market to force you to pay for the expensive ones.___

Mesh Networks

In a world where corporations routinely exchange your personal data for services, the NSA monitors you, net neutrality is under attack, and ISPs throttle and tier your traffic, how will the private sector fight back?

Perhaps with Wi-Fi Mesh Networks

Mesh networks are private efforts. People take Wi-Fi  routers, add long range outdoor antennas to them, and bridge them with other people doing the same. These networks can become very large - covering whole cities.They are private and secure from outside snooping. They are faster than normal Internet connections and shared - meaning a single person can stream a movie and everyone watch it at the same time. Some have so many private services set up by individuals that the Internet is rarely accessed. Others leverage free access points throughout the city, like the Wi-Fi at libraries, to be Internet... more »

Some have so many private services set up by individuals that the Internet is rarely accessed. Others leverage free access points throughout the city, like the Wi-Fi at libraries, to be Internet connected. It is network crowd-sourcing, or community Wi-Fi, or pirate networking. It's shadow Internet. It's a communication service on a different grid. Sometimes they also provide cell phone services.  It's improved protection from big brother. With many connections they are also resilient to failure. They can exist where there is no other service, or function when there is a service blackout.

And it's free services using cheap hardware and Open Source software. Some are well funded by government grants or kick-starters. Participating in private networks is not illegal, although you do have to comply with whatever laws locally apply to antennas, radio frequencies & transmitting power, terms-of-service if you connect it to something, and the activity you actually use it for. Here's some more  information:

It reminds me of the early days of the Internet, where you could be on USENET for free. as long as you were technically competent enough to go do it, and you had to do your best to let others connect through you if possible.___

Justin.TV shuts down after 7 years!

The service that helped launch +iJustine  's career, that first made free live streaming functional, and has historically had the highest quality video stream of all the free services, is gone as of today! This was my primary streaming service for +The Vidcast Network  . It's also an API I was experienced programming with and had desires to bring to Google Glass.

Much of +The Vidcast Network  still points there, so now I'll have to scramble and fix that. As some of you know I was already working on lots of changes and a fund raiser (see https://plus.google.com/108155043727738193186/posts/JfWeoNJgFkf ) for the studio, so this is a motivational push forward. I had no prior announcement my JTV account was going to become inaccessible. I never received an email like I usually do and have been told by others they never sent one.JTV j... more »

I had no prior announcement my JTV account was going to become inaccessible. I never received an email like I usually do and have been told by others they never sent one. JTV just posted it on the website, but if you are a live-streamer you rarely ever log into the website because it's not necessary to stream. Prior to the Google purchase of Twitch, JTV and Twitch were promoted, treated and viewed by users and separate services, so it's not a given the sale of one would shut down the other. The bad news is that all the videos I had there are gone (JTV states they were removed on 6/15) and there were some early show episodes I may not have a copy of. The episodes at risk are pre-Hangouts-On-Air broadcasts that I didn't need to download for editing or distribution purposes, and did not simulcast on ustream. I was one of the first 1000 people to have access to Hangouts-On-Air (thank you Google+!), so this would be prior to early 2012. My studio back then was more primitive and I couldn't do local disk recordings simultaneously with broadcasts like today. I was already into a migration to YouTube, so it will be even a subset of those videos,  but I already know the premiere episodes of a couple shows are at risk. Nothing +Trey Ratcliff and I did together is affected because all those shows required editing and uploading. When I have a definitive list I'll share it. The viewing metrics for all videos will also be lower now because the math will no longer include JTV views (which were quite high for some videos). From a metrics perspective I'm starting over.

The humorous side in all this is that I was planning to drop JTV for YouTube Live anyway, and have been reconsidering my position about livestream.tv (I wasn't a fan of their quality or policies) because their Google Glass efforts.

Why Do I Start From Scratch On Every Service Call?

I am surprised no companies I know track whether their users/customer is average, savvy, knowledgable, professional or expert related to their service. Think how much nicer, cheaper, and more efficient support calls would be if their support desk instantly knew to route you to a specific team, person or at least above level 1 queues. Even internally your own company support desk will put you through this.

This is why I love +Google Glass  support; right now it's a dedicated team of smart people. They know me and make assumptions as to my understanding, skills and problem investigation ability. They know I don't reach out unless it's not something I can address myself, and that I've already eliminated the obvious things they would ask first. It also makes it easier for them to request complex data from me to help... more »

It also makes it easier for them to request complex data from me to help diagnosis. It's a win-win; deploying the right resources at the right level and wasting no one's time. Customer relationships at your customer contact point.

On the other hand I dread calling almost any other support number because I'm going to burn an hour waiting in a queue behind people with simple problems, plus going through ridiculous conversation points before they agree I need to be routed to higher tech support. Even worse if I cannot understand the person's accent. Comcast, credit card companies, and website hosting support all come to mind.

I'd even be willing to take a test or pass some sort of process to qualify for it.

Two of my friends debating social networks. The only way to make this better is if we were all together with food & drink. :-)

G+ vs. FB for photographers

Recently, my pal +Robert Scoble  was chatting with me about photos on FB vs. G+.  Although G+ seems quieter these days (no G+ mention at I/O), I think it's still a very active place for photography.  I worry about G+ since +Vic Gundotra left Google.  I'm sure it's still in capable hands, but when Vic was there it really was his baby and he lived and breathed G+ and really was a tremendous cheerleader for it to the outside world -- and I assume also a huge advocate for it inside of Google.

When I was talking with Robert the other day he said that he thought I posted higher quality photos to G+ than FB -- actually I post the exact same photos to both networks though, just in different order.  Robert also mentioned that some of my photos that might get thousands of likes on G+ also are probably helped along by being included ini "What's Hot" which is probably true.  He also told me the other night that he thinks people might be less reluctant to like something on Facebook because it amplifies and reflects as your taste to your friends more -- so maybe Facebook likers are more picky with photos.

Anyways, today I figured I'd post the exact same photo at the exact same time to both networks to compare the reaction to my photograph.  I took it with my iPhone.   I obviously have a lot more followers on G+, but since many of those are not active accounts, I wanted to see what sort of active engagement I would get from each network.  The photo is in the screenshot above.  I'm pretty sure it didn't make "What's Hot" because those photos usually get at least 1,000 +1s.

G+ (as of this post)
Total +1s = 444
comments = 16
reshares = 14

FB (as of this post)
Total likes = 72
comments = 3
reshares = 1

In general I'd say I've been much more social over at FB over the past few months than G+.  I'm not sure why -- maybe because more of my closer friends are more active over there than G+ right now, but I do think the numbers show that G+ still is a formidable place for photographers to promote their work.  

My other thoughts?  At big screen, the photo looks much better on G+ than FB and on smaller dedicated page view, the FB screen looks much more cluttered with more ads.___Two of my friends debating social networks. The only way to make this better is if we were all together with food & drink. :-)

We Live In Such A Weird Society

When I was growing up, me and other kids this same age would always go play outside by ourselves. In the nearby woods, on bikes, friends back yards... This is about 3rd grade so life is already becoming routine. There were no cell phones back then - you heard your dad yelling out the door it was time to come in. It wasn't neglect; it was learning to live. The article even states there is no age definition in "the law" that says what is too young to be unsupervised, so it's totally subjective to maturity or shock of other people's view of parenting.

We Live In Such A Weird Society

When I was growing up, me and other kids this same age would always go play outside by ourselves. In the nearby woods, on bikes, friends back yards... This is about 3rd grade so life is already becoming routine. There were no cell phones back then - you heard your dad yelling out the door it was time to come in. It wasn't neglect; it was learning to live. The article even states there is no age definition in "the law" that says what is too young to be unsupervised, so it's totally subjective to maturity or shock of other people's view of parenting. 

BTW In my childhood a playground was grass, dirt and sand, not cork. I don't dare tell you how many trees I climbed.

The really odd thing is the police says over and over "the park is not safe" therefore the mother is neglectful, BUT IT'S THE POLICE'S JOB TO KEEP THE PARK SAFE. He's being neglectful. And if it's not safe, why is it acceptable that children are allowed there at all? This is so backward. 

Playing outside and being independent is natural and healthy. It's sad we live in an age now where instead of people in the area just watching kids play freely and make sure he's safe, they decided to scare the kid and charge a mother. What do you think was more damaging to the kid?___

Security, the Edward Snowden way!

Is Edward Snowden a hero or a traitor? http://goo.gl/4nUlZu

Either way, you've got to admit: The guy knows how to keep his information secure. (The fact that Snowden isn’t sitting in Guantanamo right now with ankle cuffs and a bag over his head demonstrates his ability to avoid detection.)

Snowden spoke at the Hope X conference in New York this month via a Google+ Hangout from Russia, and called on developers to build privacy and security into everyday products. He also hinted that he planned to work on building such technology.

If you look into the details of what’s been happening with tracking, surveillance, spying, hacking and global cyber industrial espionage, you can see that Snowden is right. We all need a lot better protection from snoops of all stripes.

But how does the non-expert get started? One option is to listen to Snowden himself. Over the past year, Snowden has in one format or another, made specific product recommendations.

Here are the products Snowden has explicitly recommended since the trove of documents on the NSA has been publicly revealed. (The list is in alphabetical order.):

Leave a legacy at GeekBeat TV

Okay... here's the deal! If you've been thinking about getting a plaque for the Geek House Wall of Fame, NOW is the time!

If you want your name on the wall in time for the Grand Opening Party, we have a deadline of THIS FRIDAY! (Plus, you'll get an invite to come to the party!). 

You will still be able to purchase the plaques after this Friday, but we have to get our signage company the information in time for them to process it.

A HUGE thank you to all of you who are supporting this project and the growth of +Geek Beat! I wake up every day excited to get to work, and it's all because of YOU!___Leave a legacy at GeekBeat TV

How To Disable The Chrome Omnibox

Background
In June I voiced  frustration that +Google  (in their interest, not yours) removed the ability to disable the search feature of the Chrome browser Omnibox:
https://plus.google.com/105248484118148978714/posts/4TtZ634nvdB

There are several reason why you may want to do this: (1) So you get genuine error responses for failed or improper URL access attempts instead of search results and (2) If you are entering a URL, you don't want it sent to a company - you aren't searching. You want to keep your privacy. (3) The suggested search strings interfere with your URL entry. (4) You want to keep some or all URL access records from your cloud history.

You want to keep your privacy. (3) The suggested search strings interfere with your URL entry. (4) You want to keep some or all URL access records from your cloud history.

Since 1999 I perform all searches using the Google search page. I even have it as my my home page. I don't even think about it - it's my habit to just right-click the toolbar and open a new search tab. The omnibox offers zero value to me, and a lot of interactive and security unpleasantness. My background is in IT security and TCP/IP networking; I prefer to know my errors instead of creating wasted network I/O.


How To Disable The Omnibox
My search for a solution turned up failure over and over. Even worse; often the "help experts" were just incredulous  you'd want to do it at all and their solution was to to say "you don't want to". But I finally found a simple way to get the exact behavior I wanted from Chrome.

1. Go into settings, scroll down and select "manage search engines"
2. Scroll to the bottom until you see the "add" search engine boxes
3. Enter "None", "null" and "http://%s" in the boxes, and click DONE
4. Back on the settings page, next to "manage search engines" is a pulldown widget for selecting your default search engine. Set it to your new "None" engine, and exit settings

That's it. Proper URLs will work. Improper URLs or non-URLs will return an error or nothing. There are Chrome extensions out there if you want to add a separate search box, but you need to make sure the one you choose is secure.

Vessyl Illustrates What's Wrong With Silicon Valley

When I first heard about this product I instantly thought it was ridiculous. From the amount of time and money invested in it, to the price of a $200 cup, to solving a problem that doesn't exist, to the lengthy legal page on their web site. It's the product of an isolated culture that needs to prove things to itself. All this money and talent could have been spent on something, ANYTHING more beneifical to people.

Much of the same is true of YO!. While I get it was quickly put together to prove the abilities and concepts of a group and was enough of a result to get funding, it was a ridiculous amount of money for something that did nothing useful, demonstrated things we already knew and was filed with security holes. It was a better demonstration of what's stupid then what works. At least it was free.

I'm glad Stepen Colbert is taking time to poke fun at these.

Silicon Valley is a good place for innovation, but it is also  a machine where the source material and output are in the same location. People without a lot of life experience want to tell everyone else how to live. It's Disney World for the tech sector with dreams of fame for changing the world overnight instead of making small improvements. There's a massive amount of energy focused there on what "the other guy" is doing, or finding more ways corporate data collection can be added to a person's routine life. The prizes for  this are free money, unique patents or having enough hype to sell your doomed startup (that you may not have even funded). Can you really think differently when you all have the same goals, environment, relationships and strive to succeed in the same culture?

A programmer toiling away at improvements to a transational service for 10 years in south Orlando has a different reality.___

SHOULD SMART WATCHES BE BANNED?

So now I"m wearing the new LG Android Watch and it occurs to me all the scary fears the politicians and luddites loudly voiced about Google Glass could also apply to smart watches:

-- I have a "tv screen" aimed right at me while I'm driving my car (assuming my hands are on the steering wheel). Am I illegal?
-- I could (theoretically, if hacked) watch videos on it
-- Unlike Glass, it's ALWAYS on and lit. Is it a distraction? It also does directions.
-- It provides tools like remote controlling the camera on my phone or recording audio (so I can take notes). It has no LEDs telling you I'm doing this. Are people going to freak out that I could be taking pictures or recording them?

Sounds more ridiculous with a watch. People feel more familiar with watches; they've been glancing at watches for centuries. And that is the point. You can't let the irresponsible rule the masses, and you can't outlaw useful technology based on inexperience with it. Not if you want to advance the abilities and productivity of the world. Technology is as much an enabler as it is a change; ask any handicapped person dependent on it.

Google+ SPAM is Wayyyy Out Of Control!

UPDATE: Looks like Google took care of it. At least the search links I lisr before no longer show the SPAM.

In the last week I have seen an explosive jump in SPAM. I don't mean just SPAM in general; I mean the same few ads over and over in massive numbers of accounts creative solely for that purpose. My G+ Communities jumped from a couple of join requests a week, to sometimes 10+ a day and all of them are SPAM accounts. Communities are attractive to them because they provide access to larger audience than their personal following.

Here is an example +Google+ . Try this search string to see a piece of what I encounter (it's not limited to just this brand; there are others):

It is so repetitive I am positive people are getting paid to do this. This must be consuming a lot of resources in Google The odd thing is that this is such an obvious situation why isn't it already shut down? Google should be able to block something like this. I got some new ones even today. All I can do i mark each one as SPAM and block the account.

UPDATE: Apparently it is a targeted attempt to leverage Google+ posts to generate clicks on Google Ads. An ad for this activity is also being promoted (see below), and the post is dated 6/29/14, which is about when I saw the increase.

Here's the Ad. This link is safe to click but I do not encourage you to click the link shown within the ad itself:

The End of Google Outlook Calendar Sync

I received this yesterday. I use Sync a lot. Like Google Reader it has been a valuable part of my productivity. Sync enabled me to use Google Services when I could not otherwise (since it is unlikely I can convince corporations to switch from Exchange to Google Calendar). Most people not in Silicon Valley have to prioritize on their corporate calendar for their schedule, so this "walling off" is not helpful.

I hope Google releases the source code for it (there is a repository but it's empty: https://code.google.com/p/outlook-google-calendar-sync/ ). In the meantime I will have to explore alternatives like http://outlookgooglesync.codeplex.com/

STUDIO UPDATE

First thank you to all our new followers! We took quite a break from live broadcasts so I could focus on Google Glass Exploration and being on "The Tech Buzz", "Chris Voss Show" and other Internet shows, but in response to our growing audience I'm excited to say I'll be returning to doing broadcasts and videos of our own again.

Right now I'm planning improvements to the studio and you'll see more on this soon. It's already been upgraded to Wirecast Pro. Other changes include:

Equipment: I've been having audio problems ever since my primary microphone died, so I need to replace it and I don't intend to scrimp on it this time. I also need a new monitor and better audio mixer. I also plan to include broadcasting to YouTube Live and that requires more network bandwidth.

Equipment: I've been having audio problems ever since my primary microphone died, so I need to replace it and I don't intend to scrimp on it this time. I also need a new monitor and better audio mixer. I also plan to include broadcasting to YouTube Live and that requires more network bandwidth.

New Studio Layout: I have a lot of ideas for high quality videos as well as making broadcasting easier to do. I need better and more frequent access to my green screen setup, and to accommodate visitors. I will be changing the layout of the studio and possibly moving it all to a larger room.

iTunes &YouTube: I want to go through our existing shows and extract/edit the audio for publication on iTunes as podcasts. I also need to upload lots of the older shows to our YouTube channel.

Website Changes: I'm no longer happy with the website layout. I plan to change it from small squares to more descriptive rows of the episodes, and have better grouping and searching. I'm also planning to better support sponsors and referrals.

Fund Raiser: For the past 5 years I've scraped and financed the studio at my own expense, while sharing it all at no cost to you because of my love of doing it. The studio has been a volunteer effort and does not produce income. Not including bandwidth, utilities or time my personal investment is nearing $10k. Unfortunately I can't afford to do that anymore. I can do the labor, but I need help with some of the costs of these repairs and improvements. I'm putting together a one-time fundraiser, with tiers in it so that you decide by your support what I can (or can't) do. :-)

New Shows, Videos & Podcasts: I have ideas for new Tech, Geek, and Humor shows and videos that I'll be creating. I also plan to start doing audio podcasts.

I hope you liked what you heard and continue your support and patience.___

Google Removes All Author Photos from Search - Update Summary!

This past Wednesday Google's +John Mueller made an announcement that stunned many of us: Google will no longer be showing face photos or Google+ circle counts for authors in search results. Google Authorship still works, and qualifying authors can still get a byline on results for their content.

I've been keeping careful tabs on this development and have been posting news, updates, and analysis over the past several days. Here are all my relevant posts:

Are Byline Only Results in Search Worthless? I refute the idea that now that author photos are gone, the bylines have little or no value http://stonet.co/1lnSGFy

John Mueller Elaborates on Google's Removal of Author Photos from Search My analysis and commentary of some intriguing further remarks from Google's John Mueller about why Author photos were removed from search http://stonet.co/1jwUOuX

What Authorship Results in Search Look Like Now I show examples of the new results, and reveal a nice surprise for active Google+ users http://stonet.co/1wWLadf

So What About that Google Authorship CTR Boost? John Mueller surprised many when in his announcement of the end of Authorship photos in search he said that Google was seeing little effect on CTR whether search had such photos or not. I comment on whether there ever was such a boost http://stonet.co/1iPUvjW

What Google Authorship Results in Search Look Like Now I show what the new photoless authorship results look like, and reveal a surprise: US searchers now can get authorship photos for Google+ posts by people in their circles whom Google sees as "highly relevant" to them. http://stonet.co/1r66P2a

Google Glass and British Privacy

So let me see if I got this right. Britain has strict and more universal privacy and camera protection laws than the U.S., and #GlassExplorers there are reminded that taking photos of people without permission is alright for personal use but be mindful of the laws about sharing them publicly.

But here in the U.S., where you can't go outside, drive, visit almost any establishment, or use an ATM without being recorded, and like Britain it's perfectly legal to photograph someone without permission for personal use but there are protection laws about publishing them - people freak out that Glass even contains a camera and cry out for banning?

Clearly Brits are more mature and I should consider moving there! :-)

I'm very disappointed by this. I loved their ingenuity at meeting the written law while providing customers the service they wanted and breaking free of the cable chains.

Why I Don't Feel Google Glass Entitled

Please read to the end before commenting. I relate both positive and negative views, and perhaps you'll see my point and I'll look less evil.

I find myself in frequent argument with people who claim they were betrayed by Google or that they expected to get free hardware or accessories every time the Google Glass product advances. The reasons they most often give are:

1. I spent $1500 to join a beta program. I expected to get the latest product every time it changes until the consumer one is released. 
2. It's not fair that when I bought mine  I didn't have xxxxx option.
3. The product is 3x more expensive than it should be.
4. I paid money to help Google so they owe me.
5. It's "the right thing".

Why I Don't Feel Google Glass Entitled

Please read to the end before commenting. I relate both positive and negative views, and perhaps you'll see my point and I'll look less evil.

I find myself in frequent argument with people who claim they were betrayed by Google or that they expected to get free hardware or accessories every time the Google Glass product advances. The reasons they most often give are:

1. I spent $1500 to join a beta program. I expected to get the latest product every time it changes until the consumer one is released. 
2. It's not fair that when I bought mine  I didn't have xxxxx option.
3. The product is 3x more expensive than it should be.
4. I paid money to help Google so they owe me.
5. It's "the right thing".

I consider all of these bunk. Am I the only person who read the purchase agreement before spending $1500? It says nothing about being obligated to help Google or getting something in return or free upgrades. I've been in beta programs before and you ALWAYS read what you are agreeing to first.

Regarding price. Price is set by market. It's worth what you are willing to pay. Whether you think $1500 is too high or not, we both were willing to pay it rather than vote by walking away. No one was forced to spend the money. We made an adult decision whether to have patience and wait, because we KNEW for a fact that like all tech it would be better and cheaper in a year or so, or wanted it now. We even had 30 days to return it no questions asked. You shouldn't feel slighted or unhappy down the road when others get more. If you want to view it as gambling and lost, fine, but it's not anyone else's fault.

Whether you have certain beliefs on what a beta program means or not, you did get what Google agreed to deliver for your purchase. It even has a warranty, which will expire and we'll no longer be entitled to free repair costs and swaps. Have you considered that?

Would I like a free upgrade? Of course, but if that happens it's because Google is being generous and going beyond my purchase, not because it's "right" or earned or deserved or ethical.

I'll Illustrate The Extremes By My Personal Example.

When I found out I won #ifihadglass   competition , I immediately started saving my money. I was pro-active. My purchase required I had to travel to NYC to pick it up, so MY cost to join the Glass Explorers program was roughly $2600. There was no way I could afford this, but also no way I was going to be left out. I looked for sponsors and raised about $1600 in support and kicked in the rest myself. Later when my tax refund showed up I spent another $500 on accessories.

30 days after my Glass purchase Google removed the requirement for travel and started shipping them to people's homes. Should I be outraged? Should I get roughly $1000 in some compensation for a requirement only a very small number of Explorers were forced to accept?

When Google upgraded the hardware to V2, I got a free exchange, an optional color change, and my warranty was extended another 6 months. Nothing I "signed" says I was owed this and it was a surprised it was offered.  Was this Generous of them or not?

I've given over 1500 public and private Glass demonstrations to people, hosted 7 Glass meet-ups and helped with 2 others, wrote an article for the glass-community site, manage two G+ communities, and submitted A LOT of feedback to Google in both formal submissions and the data generated by my wearing Glass all day every day for a year. I was not asked to do this (other than the article), I received no compensation from Google for it nor expected any, and was not obligated. I did it because I wanted to help people, connect to other owners, improve the product for myself, and share a community experience. I did not do it to help Google - they are a multi-million dollar company and can accomplish all of it without me. If I had that attitude I would have billed them for all my time. It was an opportunity, not an obligation.

Does this mean Google is evil if they don't give me anything in return? Who "gives" with the condition that if someone takes them up on it they're obligated? THAT'S unethical. Giving is it's own reward. Even if you feel a responsibility to do so because it's a beta program, there's nothing saying you'd get additional benefits.

When Glass opened to the public, Google offered free shades or a frame with every purchase. Some people who owned Glass for more than 6 months were outraged by this. I didn't get this offer either. Am I entitled to it? I've been on other beta programs and never have gotten free things later. Price changes, product improvements, and marketing bundling are going to happen. Time doesn't sit still. It's reality.

When I bought Glass a year ago, I immediately started saving money so I could afford to buy the consumer product. I had no idea if I had to pay for it or not, but again I was being pro-active and preparing.

And now Google is again upgrading the hardware. If they were to swap out all the existing Explorers, it would easily be more than 50k devices. I've already had one unexpected upgrade I appreciated. Why should I suddenly think I'm entitled to more? I'd rather be appreciative it happened and not be disappointed if it doesn't.

Now I'm faced once again with a decision, just as I do with all tech purchases, should I buy this new one or wait for the consumer release (potentially buying TWO more devices). No matter what I decide, I will not expect Google or any company to do more than meet their obligation of purchase and warranty. Don't ever expect ANY corporation to look out for you. I may contribute more, but that's more my personality than a requirement.

My point is that compared to most all other Explorers, my costs to be part of the program were much higher (while dropping 35% just 30 days later), more unaffordable to me personally, I've given boatloads more feedback and help to Google, sacrificed more time in terms of product demonstrations and hosting meet-ups (and now in Glass Community Leadership activity), I didn't get free frames, and I also am in the same boat as you about the new hardware. In addition, the warranty is near expiring on my existing device.  With all of that, I don't feel entitled or owned ANYTHING, so how can I support people who firmly believe they do? I've been saving money just so I don't lose out on future opportunities, how many others are?


Is Glass A Failure? Did We Get Taken?

Robert Scoble and I argue this. My answer is "Not for me personally". I remember like it was yesterday how thrilled I was someone finally created a device that brought visual and audio I/O directly to my head, and how magical it was when that screen first lit up. Whether you consider Glass a success or not, it helped launch the facial computer revolution. Imaginations fired, the competition is escalating. These products will only get better and cheaper. Whether it's Google or someone else, I will own the best one!

My view is that a year ago I had nothing, and now I have this. I knew what I was paying for and agreeing to. I knew there were risks - would it get outlawed, would it drop in price a month later, would I get harassed, would Google shelve it? BUT Google could kill the whole project tomorrow and it I'd still be grateful for 2 very big reasons:

1. I own this device. Even without Google it's useful. It can be hacked. It can be open sourced. These options have yet to really take off, but they will happen. I'll still be able to use it for cool things. I'm not disappointed in what it cannot do yet, I'm excited for what I might be able to do with it. I participated in history.

2. I have met SOOOO many cool new people and formed so many new close friendships that I can't begin to put a price on that. It far exceeds my $1500 (or $2600) investment. None of that would have happened without Glass. One of the best enhancements to my life that Glass provided is not listed in it's menu system. Again, even if the product died I will always have this. (cc: +Virginia Poltrack )


Am I Owed ANYTHING?

+Goddess Diana put it bluntly in a comment to one of my recent posts - I am owed a minimally functioning device for my purchase. I don't mean in judgement that it should have more apps or capabilities. I mean when KitKit rolled out to it, my existing device began having reliability and over-heating problems in regular use. Google also removed video communications. The device I purchased originally did not over-heat except in extreme circumstances and had video calls/hangouts. I deserve those back, as that was my functionality during my 30 day decision trial period.. Google has trying to help, but so far I'm not there. Maybe the next XE upgrade will fixed it, maybe not. Maybe this will require an exchange to the new hardware. Maybe Google should allow people to roll back to the ICS release. Maybe it will plague me until the consumer release. It's Google's choice how it's fixed, but whatever the resolution these 2 issues should not cost me additional funds even beyond my warranty expiring because they broke it, not me.

Thanks for reading :-)

I'm going to start living by rules some here appear to have. From now on, when I spend more than $1000 on anything, I'm going to do this with the expectation that the company I buy it from is unethical and evil unless they:

(1) Don't offer me a refund for every future price reduction
(2) Don't send me free things if they start bundling their product with things that use to cost separate or weren't available.
(3) Don't offer me multiple free product upgrades if I voluntarily give them lots of feeback on how their product sucks.
(4) These rules will be true even if no one forced me to buy the product, the purchase agreements says nothing about it, and at least up to a year later
(5) The corporation will be responsible, even though I never voiced these conditions to them during my purchase. They are also responsible for charging what I believe is a fair... more »

(6) If they do give me anything, it indicates that I was right rather than generosity

Seriously; how can anyone have a happy life if they cart around such expectations? <facepalm>
