One of the modern day debacles coming from any tech company was Google’s Glasses. I was quoted in the WSJ saying that buying Google Glasses for $1500 was one of the worst purchases I have ever made in my life. Although in my case it was for research purposes, I am sure that any prosumer or consumers who bought Google Glasses had the same feelings about spending any amount for these worthless prototypes. I also chided Google at the time for even offering prototypes to the broad market at any price as they were not even close to being ready for prime time.
