    The list seems to be made of how people will perceive the product when they see it first. That's fair. I see no need for any brainstorming on this one...

    I'll add mine to the list, in the order of being the most likely first response:

    1. "Oh,!"
    2. "F.Nerd!"
    3. "Freak!"
    4. "Yuck!"
    5. "F. Idi0t!"
    6. "Terminator!"

    Dear Google, feel free to pick one from the list, and I can give you a reasonable promise that I won't try to sue you for the copyright.

    So, for the list of "How to Lose Friends & Alienate People", I would have buying this device as a definitive #1 ;)

    To put it otherwise, if I were given a pair of these for free, plus $1500 of pocket money, I still wouldn't put them on, because my friends will think that I must have finally lost it. So I think anyone paying for it must have either lost it long ago or never had much sense in the first place.

    I think they should have made the hot word a generic sounding servant's name. Jeeves would be perfect I think.

    'OK Glass' makes it sound like Glass and I are a team and we're going to do something together and I need it's approval. I don't want to be forced to be polite to technology.

    Why are they trying so hard. Since they used a common English word for the company ('google'), why not one for the product?.......'goggles'.........or a variation, like 'gggls'.

    I like my password better that I used to unlock my phone - "Shall we play a game?"
