Congress Demands Answers Over Google Glass and Privacy

Should focus on the civil rights violations from government instead


For a product so far available only to a select few, Google Glass is attracting more than its fair share of controversy, the latest of which comes from a letter sent to Google CEO Larry Page by a Congressional privacy group. In it, a series of eight questions are posed to Page, all related to privacy infringement. As is often the way with this type of thing, the questions aren't an attack on Google, or Glass, but requests for more information. "Because Google Glass has not yet been released," it says, "we are uncertain of Google's plans to incorporate privacy protections in the device."
