Style

A word that perhaps needs explaining to Google.

To add style fail to an already dorky set of frames they have the nerve to charge 75 bucks for a pair of polycarbonate safety lenses that I would normally buy from a builders merchants for about a fiver?

So a glasshole could be defined as ; a dorky nerd with more money than sense(ibility)?

Re: Style

That's what's great about fashion! The more ridiculous and/or impractical something is, the more you can charge for it! It's all really high margin stuff too (yay for displaced labor and foreign labor laws)!

Were I of a more ridiculous mindset, I might have gone into fashion instead of my current field. The money is great and as near as I can tell, the women have their clothes most of the time.

Why wear the regular specs? EVERYTHING you want to buy need to see is beamed directly into your eyeball through Google Glass.

They call it a microUSB charger...

...in which case, doesn't have to meet the same specs as any other microUSB charger? - like the one I bought recently for 3 quid that works fine - as expected - in my 2 devices which also carry a standard microUSB port...

Social Interaction

Will the Japanese micro fiber get along with my Argentinian micro fiber? You'd think they might, but it's hard to say. The communication barriers must be significant.

Honestly, prior to this article, I had no idea micro fibers identified with a particular nationality. I hope I haven't offended any. They really should spoken up. It simply isn't reasonable for me to be expected to know everything. It's on them as much as me to learn and communicate what offends a given culture.

Applying Dilbert's law of market segmentation

First sell to rich idiots. Then you can use the profits to up the volume and lower the prices and really reach the mass market.

Not to be a downer...

but isn't it possible that the prices haven't been set as of yet since they are all marked as out of stock? Are you able to actually order the out of stock items? It seems like the prices may just be placeholders.

That said, it would be disappointing if these prices were true. $50 for the plug adapter and cable is what you will spend for Apple iKit.

Re: Not to be a downer...

Sure, it is possible the prices are placeholders. But you'd really hope Google could do better than that. I haven't done any web development in a decade, and was never very good at it, but even I could have implemented any number of solutions that didn't publish random bullshit to the web.
