Another potentially great use for Glass.
Don’t laugh at that dorky guy wearing Google Glass — he may be there to inspect your restaurant. City food inspectors might don the nerdwear under a City Council proposal…

Introducing my oldest to Galaxy Quest.

So, let's say Google decides glass is ready for prime time, and is going to ship. Let's also say they're aiming for an international launch.  What countries would they launch in?  

We've heard that there are regulatory issues, but I think it might go beyond things like wireless certifications.  Specifically, things like photography consent laws.

I think, most likely, they would avoid any country with anything other than "No" in the consent required to take a picture column, and probably most countries that don't have "No" in the "publish a picture column."

Based on this list, that would limit the initial release to Slovenia, Sweden, the United States, and China.  

Depending on the exceptions, it looks like India, the Netherlands, Austria, and Australia might be reasonable candidates for release. Although Australia may be becoming more restrictive in the near future.

I can't imagine they'd release in Brazil, Spain or Switzerland.

Of course, the list doesn't have every country on the planet.

I buy it from Google, It comes in a Google box, if something goes wrong with it I RMA it through Google.  LG can't build a Nexus device unless Google selects them to manufacture it, therefore it is a Google device manufactured by LG.  So, if you want to say that Google builds glass, fine, but then Google also builds phones.

In any case, if someone commits a criminal act with a device, that is the responsibility of the individual who commits the criminal act, not the manufacturer of a device for which 99.999% of use is non-criminal.

+Shentel I've recently noticed that you've changed your internal network to utilize the private class A 10.x.x.x IPv4 address ranges. There's a lot of potential problems with this (vpn collisions for example), and I really wish you wouldn't do this. Any chance you could enlighten me as to when this change was made, and in light of RFC-6752, what the reasoning behind this was?

traceroute to (, 64 hops max, 52 byte packets

I have 4 hops that must go over the 10.x address space to get to hulu.  Any traceroute I do, I have to hit at least one of these addresses. For example, to get to the gateway:

traceroute to (, 64 hops max, 52 byte packets
 1 (  12.759 ms *  14.486 ms

If my work was to use the 10.x.x.x space, I'd be seriously hosed. Fortunately for me it doesn't.

Now this is cool.
U.S. Air Force is testing Google Glass & building apps for battlefield use

The U.S. Air Force’s “BATMAN” research team at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio is beta-testing Google Glass for possible use on the battlefield.

And so far, it likes what it sees.

+T-Mobile I haven't had a signal now for over an hour. My phone can only see AT&T. Looks like you've got a tower down? My wife's phone is the same. Tried rebooting, going outside, nothing. T-Mobile doesn't show up on available networks.

Food was obviously not fresh made - canned, frozen, etc. Server tried to pass the food off as just "not seasoned because someone might be allergic". The place was almost empty and our meal took over 2 hours, and we sat without refills several times. Won't be going back.
