Why I'm Returning Google Glass

Apparently paying $1500 for the privilege of being a Google Glass beta tester isn't all it is cracked up to be.

In the end, though, that wasn't enough. Despite what Larry Page said, I actually do prefer to pull my phone out of my pocket. It's easier for me and less awkward than looking up and trying to manipulate this device and see the small screen. All that said, I still believe the future of computing will involve wearables of some kind, but I don't think Glass is going to be the killer device. It feels very prototype-ish and I can't help but feel that it's the precursor to something better Google might even be working on now as we try these.
