Speaking of Google Glass

With the report of Google Glass being killed in its current form, I thought I’d share a funny email I got from Phil Schiller back in 2012 when Glass first debuted. In the email, I send Phil a picture of Steve Martin wearing these ridiculous looking glasses, which at the time reminded me of Google Glass.

It didn’t take long before he emailed me back with this response:

I can’t believe they think anyone (normal) will ever wear these things. It reminds me of the push to market video goggles a few years back.

He was thinking what most (normal) people were thinking. And it turns out he was right.

Sorry, Robert Scoble.
