When will the uber geeks ever learn. Companies have been working on this stuff for a long time. Its not a technological problem, its a fashion problem. The last thing someone who just got Lasik wants to do is don a pair of glasses. 

Nick Bilton:

People who constantly reach into a pocket to check a smartphone for bits of information will soon have another option: a pair of Google-made glasses that will be able to stream information to the wearer’s eyeballs in real time.

Yet later, he also notes:

The glasses are not designed to be worn constantly — although Google expects some of the nerdiest users will wear them a lot — but will be more like smartphones, used when needed.

If that's the case, why would I get these again?

I see watches being the better place to put this type of information. Only the uber geeks will be wearing these.
