Glass - Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?
So along with the recent news and media discussion about Glass backlash and Google's approach to the B2B market, I have also been intrigued with the "get your Glass" one-day sale slated for tomorrow, April 15th. And when I saw the Forbes piece this morning by @GuyClapperton, "Will You Buy Google Glass Tomorrow" I enjoyed reading the pros and cons for would-be purchasers. And I also had the classic song, "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?", originally recorded by the Shirelles and co-authored by Idaho's own Carole King, came to mind.
Though I think it's Google and Glass asking me the question. As mentioned, the door-opening characteristic of my Explorer status is based on its novelty and as Glass gets more and more common, that certainly diminishes. I remember in 2008 when it felt like owning and using an Apple iPhone gave one a bit of an exclusive feeling, in a somewhat similar way, like part of a small club.
But ok Glass, I'll keep on (at least) liking you after tomorrow...
