Sometime in 1784 Benjamin Franklin was traveling from one location to another. He loved to read while he was traveling. One day he noticed that he was quite inconvenienced every time he had to switch from his reading glasses to his other glasses and every time he wanted looked up at the scenery outside the window (Isaacson 426). He then decided to see his optician. He told his optician to cut out a half section of glass from his eyeglasses he used to see in the distance and then to cut a half section from his eyeglasses to see close up. He then combined the two half lenses together in one eyeglass. He wanted the farsighted section to be on top
Most expectations would be somewhat glamorous due to the fact that there was so much rave about a product such as Google Glass where technology is now jam-packed into something as simple as glasses. It seems to close the gap that was missing for most people, some may say even fulfill the need of consumers, of wanting a device that consumers could constantly plugged into technology. This leads to the next point where Tsukayama goes on to state, “I shouldn 't feel this way. I like new technology -- I 've been a tech reporter at The Washington Post for more than three years. And I admire the vision of technology that Google promises Glass can offer: a device that lets you keep track of e-mails, texts and other messages in a seamless way -- all through a screen that 's perched just over your right eye.” (Tsukayama 1) This statement ties into the previous commentary which was someone like a technology reporter would be so dissatisfied with a product like this that it is surprising. It was definitely a shock to find out that someone such as the author found this product so distasteful. However, this goes into the next topic which relates to the standard of accepted criteria.
Glass can also hold fingerprints which can be very valuable to an investigation as the fingerprints can be taken up on tape and then ran through a database, possibly finding a match and allowing the investigators to find and capture a suspect.
Despite being a potentially lifesaving device, there have been some concerns from people inside and outside the medical field’s community. These concerns include privacy concerns, fear of users being distracted, HIPAA compliance, and network issues, but Google Glass has the ability to overcome each of these obstacles. With the correct applications, proper training, and the correct network, along with the current rules already enforced in the medical field, these hurdles can easily be conquered.
The authors have organized the article very logically by giving a series of problems that link together can make the smartphone insecure by giving the examples of outside sources: operating system security issues of L. Xing et al., “Unauthorized Cross-App Resource Access on MAC OSX and iOS,”, memory corruption attacks of E. Schwartz et al., “Q: Exploit Hardening Made Easy,”, etc. These logical series can build stronger relationships to the ethos and pathos to make their writing more effective.
Humankind has gone through many ages including the Stone Age, Bronze Age, Iron Age, the Middle ages, Machine age, and the period we are in today. Many valid arguments for what period we are in today including the Big Data Age, Social Age, or even Information Age. However, I think a valid argument can also be made for the Glass Age. Throughout this course we have covered many topics while using a wide variety of equipment and technology all made possible through the advancements of glass. From window panes absorbing UV radiation, microscope lenses or eye glasses, to the fiberoptic cable that keeps us in an information age. Todays world would not be possible without glass.
Relevance to the Audience: In a survey conducted by N3L optics, a sports performance sunglass retailer, “85 percent of Americans recognize the need for eye protection”. Many of you probably own a pair of sunglasses.
The Google Glass Article stated, “That's part of the plan behind the "Glass Explorer" scheme, which aims to get the devices into the hands – or rather, on to the faces – of ordinary people (and which enabled one member of the trial to putatively auction their Glass),”(Google Glass:Is It A Threat to Our Privacy). To stay in competition means coming out with big and better products faster than anyone else in the market. Brave New World practically coined this to create the World State’s stability. In this novel, the people are encouraged to buy the new and latest products to obsolete the old. The World State makes products that are are nessesity to the people. These items include the distribution of soma, new and exciting feelies, and sex hormone chewing gum. 1984 is not a stranger to this line of work also. The people of 1984 loves to have their Victory Gin and even razors. The Party makes getting razors hard to get to get more demand for a limited supply. In conclusion, when people start seeing everyone with the same product they want to have it as well.

Google has made an effort on making a new device called Google Glass, which is innovative device that has people visioning ways to enhance the product by communicating with people but not all are convinced due to the invasive privacy by the documentation of using video recordings at anytime hands free and the safety and health of yourself and your surroundings. It’s also a tool to reduce crime with first person view.
Google Glass has been described as “a personal assistant whereby it allows users to direct connect to the Web via WiFi, or tethers to a 3G or 4G mobile devices via Bluetooth. Its weight is less than a pair of sunglasses ( approximately nine pounds ) and it basically operated by touch and voice.” (Tuffley,2013) Since Google Glass comes with the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, you could connect your Google Glass with your mobile devices such a smart phone, via Bluetooth. Google Glass also able to translate your speech to text, with it connected to your mobile devices, you can now chat instantly with your friends on Chat Room or Instant Messaging without looking down on your smart phones, instead, you just have to “talk” to them. Google Glass is said to be an almost “hands free device”, the propose of it is to create a more active lifestyle with our advanced technology, it is enough for us seeing people meeting up in a café, meanwhile all they do is just looking down on their smart phones instead of talking to each other, and they could call that a “gathering”, yet it is actually just a group of people sitting together looking at their smart phones separately. The Google Glass is currently still on it’s “Trial and Error” journey, where Google make the Google Glass available for developers, the price stated in the meantime was $1,500. A few lucky developers
We are living in era where technology is emerging and growing everyday more and more. Today world is called, the world of technology. Laptops, iPads, and smartphones, are examples of the new technology that have been controlling people life in the past few years. The huge rising of digitals that we are witnessing now, made all the large companies start competing and pushing themselves more, trying to make the impossible possible. Now days, technology has been invented to help people in everything they need and easy to reach such as; collecting information, gaining knowledge and even as a way that will show how to interact with the universe. The huge emerging and raising of technology that public witnessing now, encouraged Google Company to start thinking of creating something new, but at the same time can be considered as unique. Creativity and Uniqueness is what made Google come up with the idea of Google glasses. Google thought that new invention of glasses will change the future, and will bring to the world something that everyone will use in every step of life.
