Google Glass will be released in 2014 according to Eric Schmidt

On BBC Radio 4, Eric Schmidt of Google made an announcement in response to a query as to when Google Glass will be available in the market for the masses. He said it would take at least a year or so for the peculiar new product to reach mass consumption levels. Already there is sporadic use of this fancy product but it has not reached the epic proportions in usage as is customary with Google devices.

According to the online site Dvice, the spring season of 2014 is when the wonderful product is expected to hit the shelves of computer shops around the world. It is a marvel of miniaturized electronic and silicon technology. Thousands will get used by developers over the next few months. However, full-scale marketability will have to wait till a whole year has passed by. The opening has been procrastinated but that only makes the wait all the more exciting.

There were concerns over the invasion of privacy when people will wear these computer glasses in public. Since recording can take place surreptitiously it raised alarm bells among the conservative segment of society. Schmidt admitted that this was a problem the solution of which was not so easy. New rules would have to be formulated and actual laws implicated in order to protect the confidentiality of the public from the scrutiny of Google Glass users. There are no two ways about it.

In his own words “Companies like Google have a very important responsibility to keep your information safe but you have a responsibility as well which is to understand what you’re doing, how you’re doing it, and behave appropriately and also keep everything up to date.” Google is no small time player and has always preferred innovation and creativity over hidebound tradition and economic stagnation. Yet there are such things as moral values even in today’s haphazard fast-lane world of twisted thoughts and unnatural changes. Science without values is nothing. The two must proceed in tandem.

For now, the eager beavers among the consumers must show a little patience as the timing of the launch has been delayed by 365 days. The only advice for them is to hold on for a bit longer. Google has not let them down in the past and hopefully it won’t let them go home empty handed in the future either.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
