  • How to Have Google Glass Etiquette

    Google Glass is a form of wearable technology. It allows wearers to view information via a hands free, smartphone like format. It can be fun to use and wear but it can be confronting for people who know little about it or who wonder whether you're secretly filming them or taking their image. This article will help you to use good etiquette when wearing Google Glass, helping you to be both polite and respectful towards others in your line of view.

    1. Prepare to be noticed. There are only about 7,000 devices in the US and about 10,000 total in the rest of the world.[citation needed] You will get plenty of attention while wearing Google Glass because it's a novelty and a curiosity at this point in time. The novelty factor and desire to learn more about it makes it even more of a reason to be courteous to those curious about your new technology.
    2. If someone asks you about what you're wearing, be gracious. If you have time, explain to them what Google Glass is. No need to let them touch it, if you are not comfortable.
      • Cultivate a response for those who ask what Google Glass is. This will help make the interactions seamless and enjoyable.
    3. If you notice someone whispering to a friend about you, just smile. They are more curious than anything. Slightly acknowledging their presence will give everyone peace of mind. 




    Part 2 of 2: Glass Etiquette

    1. Ask for permission before taking photos or video. As with all smart devices, it's always common courtesy to ask before recording images or taking photos. When in public, always ask before you take photos or video. Treat it just like a phone camera.
    2. Use Google Glass to help yourself and others. For example, if a friend wants to know the score of the football game, ask Glass and save them the time of looking it up.
    3. Respect and acknowledge others while wearing Glass. Your Glass should be treated more as an assistant instead of a new friend. Do not neglect your social circles for sake of your new technology.
    4. Limit the times when you have the Glass' screen on. Having the screen on might cause people to think you are recording them. It also drains the battery faster.
    5. Know when to leave it at home. As cool and nice as Google Glass is, there are times it's just not appropriate to wear for safety or legal reasons. The following lists just some of the times to leave Glass at home:
        • Movie theaters (cinemas). Recording devices are illegal in movie theaters worldwide. Glass is considered a recording device, as it's not concealed and has a camera.
        • Casinos. Most casinos actually have a "No Glass Policy" when around the gambling tables. They claim it's to prevent cheating and fraud during gambling. It may be okay to wear Glass to casinos, but just keep your distance from the tables.
        • The "bad parts" of town. The majority of people you meet, whether wealthy or poor, will know what Glass is. Google does have insurance on Glass but it doesn't cover theft or loss, so if someone were to take them off your face and run away, you'd be out of luck.
        • Driving. Glass is an electronic device and is considered to be "distractive". For this reason, many states such as California, Nevada, and Washington are giving tickets to those who drive and wear Google Glass, whether it's switched on or not.
          • Some laws are in the process of being passed to remove the driving ban, since with some cars like the Tesla Model S, Glass will assist you with a speedometer, battery life, tire pressure, etc. You'll need to keep yourself updated on progress.
        • Bars. Most people have heard of the Molotov incident in San Francisco.[citation needed] So bars are probably not the place for Glass.
        • Social events when you risk appearing rude. You should not take Glass to large family gatherings or dinners out in public. It can be seen as rude.

    Women can easily learn many languages. But can not find solutions to problems. Men can not easily learn languages, they can easily solve problems. That's why in average a 3 years old girl has three times higher vocabulary than a 3 years old boy.

But If a complex map is viewed by women, they can not understand it. Women can not understand the details of a map easily, For them it is just a dump of lines on a paper.
    While driving a car, mans analytical spaces are used in his brain. He can drive a car fastly. If he sees an object at long distance, immediately his brain classifies the object (bus or van or car) direction and speed of the object and he drives accordingly.

    So guys, do not lie face to face.

    If a man have a lot of problems, his brain clearly classifies the problems and puts them in individual rooms in the brain and then finds the solution one by one. You can see many guys looking at the sky for a long time. If a woman has a lot of problems, her brain can not classify the problems. she wants some one to hear that. After telling everything to a person she goes happily to bed. She does not worry about the problems being solved or not.
    Men want status, success, solutions, big process, etc... But Women want relationship, friends, family, etc...
