Google Glassholes are UNDATEABLE says Ray Edwards @ Hewlett-Packard | The Register

Google Glassholes are UNDATEABLE – HP exec; Jasper Hamill; In The Register; 2014-10-23.
Teaser: You need an emotional connection, says touchy-feely MD… We can do that


  • Google Glass
  • Ray Edwards, Managing Director, New Ventures, Hewlett-Packard.
  • <quote>When you look at the appeal of Google Glass… would you wear it on a date? Probably not. And, if you did, you probably wouldn’t get a second date. HP is looking at the wearables that create an emotional connection, Taking something that you’re going to have to upgrade or recycle is not something you’re emotionally connected with, even though you can change it and offer different combinations. It’s not a Swiss watch. It’s not as timeless or emotional as something like that. [Apple Watch] It’s not something you’re going to pass on to your kids,</quote> attributed to Ray Edwards.
