An anonymous reader writes "Starting at 9 a.m. ET on April 15 anyone in the US will be able to buy Google Glass for one day. From the article: 'This is the first time the device has been available to the general public. So far, the face-mounted computers have been sold only to Google "Explorers," the company's name for early adopters. At first only developers could buy Glass, but Google slowly expanded the program to include regular people. Some were hand-picked, others applied to be Explorers through Google contests by sharing what cool projects they would do if they had Glass.'"

    but violence is fun. there aren't any laws against being an asshole so too many fucks can go around legally bullying everyone and there's nothing you can do about it legally.

    You can ask them to stop... or you can go somewhere that the owner can tell the glasshole to get lost or be charged with trespassing.

    the only recourse these days is to kick someone's teeth in and wipe the smug look off their face.

    When violence becomes the "only recourse" to something that is not, by itself, physically threatening in any way, one may want to consider whether or not there is something already seriously wrong with their own world view.

    It's absolutely no different than those who have gone around killing nonbelievers in the name of religion.

    Progress as in change, not necessarily as in "moving forward", as that is only defined later, as "forward" is the path to a destination, and until you get to that destination, you don't know if you were going forward or backward at any point in time.

    I am old enough to remember the same sorts of arguments against PCs. They were toys for the elite yuppies, and would never be useful for the poorer people.

    You are just jealous. Why all the hate?
