If you’re one of the few, the proud, the owners of Google Glass, I’m sure you’re enjoying finding out all the fun things you can do with Google Glass. However, there’s one place (so far) that Google Glass is not welcome. If you’re in San Francisco, don’t go to The Willows and expect to keep your Glasses on. The bar has banned Google Glass within the premises.
“Since there are no actual laws that we’re aware of limiting what people with Glass can and cannot record (and subsequently post online without approval of those being filmed), we feel the best thing for us now is to play it safe by not allowing them at all at this point,” said Tom Ryan, the bar’s owner.
Of course, every person in The Willows is carrying at least one recording device, if not several. The cell phone can take pictures, record video, and is generally just as much of a hazard to privacy, if not more of one. However, you can’t ban cell phones; you can discourage the use and I imagine you’d pay more attention to someone who had their phone out and was pointing it at people, so perhaps the Google Glass ban is a good idea since all you have to do (as far as I know) is touch your glasses to take a secret picture.Technorati Tags: bar bans google glass, california, google, google glass, google glass banned, google glass banned by bar, san francisco, the willows, the willows bans google glass
