It can be difficult to get a second glance in the French Quarter.  Face it, people there have just about seen it all.  Oh, but wear a set of Google Glass and people will notice.

Technology publications and reviews are calling Glass a groundbreaking device.  It pairs with your smart phone to supply wireless data to a small crystal viewfinder.  Glass allows users to search the web, text, email, play games, and a lot more.

But it’s the device’s ability to record photos and videos at the touch of a button or by voice command that worries some people.  They say the device is an invasion on privacy.

    What privacy(?), there is no such thing, NSA, law enforcement camera’s, store security camera’s, and just about everyone has a camera & a art phone, iPhone, so I really don’t see a privacy issue with google glass and us geeks who love our toys.
