Through A Glass Anti-socially

Sergei Brin (Google co-founder) says smartphones are “emasculating,” engender “unsocial habits,” and Google Glass is the antidote. Google’s Android dominates the smartphone space but Google has come-up short with “social” every time it has tried.

With Google Glass a person can clandestinely capture images and video shorts of whatever they see through the glass. Interaction is with the self so it’s the opposite of “social” but as for emasculation…

When everyone has the ability to capture careless starlets exiting from limos—will society be suddenly masculated?
