Gigglebit: Breaking (Google) Glass

25 Jul 2014

Gigglebit is Siliconrepublic’s daily dose of the funny and fantastic in science and tech, to help start your day on a lighter note.

Like any sector, technology has a serious side, and it is often issues within this serious side that make headlines or that organisations need to explore for their business. Malware! Data breaches! Cloud storage! Do I really need this software? Which candidate has the best IT skills for this job? And what the heck is fog computing?

With Gigglebit, we turn the spotlight on humorous and/or amazing content about science and tech, because sometimes the lighter side should be taken seriously, too.

Today, we turn our attention to the Google Glass phenomenon and imagine scenarios that may very well exist in the not too distant future. You may already have noticed individuals wearing Google’s Glass eyewear in your city or town and very soon they may become a more common sight. Whether out of jealousy, spite or a higher insight, some of these early adopters have already been termed glassholes. That may be a bit harsh. You decide.
