Google Isn’t Giving Up On Glass

Schmidt told The Wall Street Journal that [Google Glass] has been put under Fadell’s watch “to make it ready for users.”

If it wasn’t obvious yet that Google Glass will be a complete failure, now you have it. You don’t simply take an advanced prototype and “make it ready for users”. With wearables especially, every decision in the design process ends up affecting the user. Sounds like they got the whole process topsy-turvy.

I’m confident that Google has the ability to build great software. They’ve proven that. But I have no reason to believe that they can bring a polished and well-designed hardware product to market. And from what we’ve seen with Google Glass, it just wasn’t designed with wearability in mind (see: glasshole).
