Yesterday Nick Starr posted the following on his facebook page after he was told to take off his Google Glass in a Seattle restaurant
Last night when we arrived we were sat at a table in the middle of the restaurant after our IDs were checked. We begin looking at the menu and a woman who works there comes up to us and tells me that the owner's other restaurant doesn't allow Google Glass and that I would have to either put it away (it doesn't fold up btw) or leave.
I inform her that I am well aware of the policy at The 5 Point Cafe but asked to see where it was policy for Glass to be disallowed at Lost Lake. She said she couldn't provide any and when asked to speak with management she stated she was the night manager. I again inform her that the two venues are different and have different policies. She refuses and I leave.
That isn't too bad, however the content above was followed by the following blocl of text
I would love an explanation, apology, clarification, and if the staff member was in the wrong and lost the owner money last night and also future income as well, that this income be deducted from her pay or her termination.
So this privileged Google Glass wearer wants someone to be terminated (from her job I assume) because he was told he couldn't wear his Google Glass. Get a life man, it will become much worse. Theft of Google Glass will be much worse than stealing someone's iPhone, for one it is much easier...you run by and grab them off someone's head.
I can see people being beat up as well if they refuse to take them off when asked
And no it is not the same as using a camera/smartphone because nobody walks around with their phone in their hand pointing the camera at your face, even when it is turned off, people would have the same reaction, they would ask you to put the phone down. Many stores do NOT allow for pictures to be taken inside the store
Anyway, you can see Nick Starr post here https://www.facebook.com/NickStarr/posts/781394843146
And I grabbed a screenshot for when he takes this down since all the replies he got are pretty much negative
And indeed, he took it down, you can't get to his facebook profile anymore. His twitter account seems to be deleted as well...oh well boo hoo
