Potential for abuse is virtually unlimited
Google Glass will make some sort of industry impact in 2014. Whether that is strictly with early adopters, "prosumers" or use in vertical markets, this is difficult to say. It's also hard to tell this early whether or not the product is acceptable in its current form given the limitations it has in terms of battery life and how it might be monetized by 3rd-party developers.
What is certain however, is that there is a nearly universal negative reaction to the life-logging and stealth recording capabilities of the device, and regardless of how cheap Google Glass eventually costs due to efficiency improvements in mass production, it's obnoxious and invasive at any price and its potential for abuse by the ethically challenged and sociopaths among us is virtually unlimited.
The privacy argument won't.stop Glass
The arguments against Google Glass's success are obvious: it violates privacy and it's too expensive.
Arguments on the basis of cost are practically void - one thing that you can bank on with technology is that over time, the cost of most devices will fall, and the technology under the hood in Glass doesn't seem anything too special, so there's no reason to think it will keep its currently ultra-premium price tag.
Google Glass is not the only product that will be released in the next few years that will bring up similar questions about whether or not it violates our collective privacy in a way that can't be tolerated.
The privacy argument would be the best chance to stop Glass in its tracks, but it won't. People are already far too tied in to using free services in exchange for their personal information to even notice it and for those who would put up that objection, the time to complain is getting ever smaller - once Glass is here in numbers, it's not going away.
Privacy doesn't matter
As much as I think there might be privacy concerns about Google Glass, it's hard to buy the argument that the concerns will derail the product. Ben Woods' argument largely revolved around this: Privacy doesn't matter in the end. Jason Perlow made his case and the crowd went with him. But in the end, privacy doesn't matter. Ben gets the win.
