    Google Glass - the next generation defensive recordings

    Right now, Google Glass, which places a small computer screen above one eye and has a built in motion sensor, camera and microphones, acts like an extension of a person's smartphone.


    It lets the user take photos and record videos by touching the side of the device or speaking commands aloud, as well as allowing them to give Web users access to the device's camera so they can "see" what the wearer is looking at. People also can use Glass to make phone calls, access Google's Web search, get turn-by-turn navigation information and receive text messages on the screen, as well as send texts using their voice.

    The very first question we at CNET get about Google Glass is: "What is it?" The next two are "What's it like to wear?" and "Why would you want to?"


    The frothing excitement around this prototype, titanium-framed wearable computer has the tech world tripping over itself in a mad dash for Glass access. Ten thousand or more Google Glass units are now shipping to beta testers and winners of the If I Had Glass contest -- for a $1,500 price tag. But the big what, why, and how questions remain.

    Many of us carry digital recorders. Some have video recorders - I have a dash cam also.

    Still the answer to you question is dependent on the laws of each particular state.

    As a general matter, the ability to secretly record a conversation initially turns on whether or not a reasonable expectation of privacy can be attached to the conversation. If there is no expectation of privacy to the conversation, any party to the communication (and in some cases any non-party) is generally free to hit the record button.

    I'm wanting Glass, but they're not publicly for sale yet that I can find. As soon as they are, I'll likely wear it if I'm outside the house.
