Google Glass: Why Zuck’s excited and I’m not

And it doesn’t really matter how great Google Glass turns out to be

Juxtaposed on Techmeme, the two headlines crystalize perfectly my personal disinterest in Google Glass.

On Forbes: "No One Is More Excited For Google Glass Than Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg."

On TechCrunch: "Google Glass Targeting End Of 2013 Consumer Release, With Price Tag Under $1,500."


Of course Mark Zuckerberg is excited; he can afford to be excited.

In my world, with my bills, on my budget, $1,500 for a plaything like Google Glass might as well be $15,000 or $15 million.

Maybe Zuck will let me borrow his.
