Just turned 32, so old fart is old
That's nothing. 40 is the true beginning of old, or maybe the Boomers pushed it up to 50. I'm not sure. One of my sisters is rubbing her hands with glee, but is slightly bummed I won't be 40 next month (one more year). She wants to do an over-the-hill party so bad, stick it to me somewhat like we did for my father. Looking at photos of that event, my father's 40th "open house"... double-take, I tell ya.
But yeah, the Iphone generation is going to get a new addition soon:
Google Glass? I'm still trying to get over the fact that Street View cached a recent photo of my front yard. We're kinda semi-remote, on an edge of the city near farm country. Not bloody likely we'll see a Glasshole here, and we'll just have the usual cellphone jerks, especially the Bluetooth headset ones.
While Glass looks a lot like a Back to the Future idea (part II, to be precise):
yeah, it probably will be the next step up from headset social gaffes (that Glasshole isn't looking at you, he/she is looking at something... else) and probably will be COMBINED with such (not only are they NOT looking at you, they aren't talking to you, either).
Returning more on topic, could you imagine people playing Runescape on this thing? Hint: aforementioned sister is a librarian... yeah, imagine a bunch of kids at a table with these things on: "watch me, Imma gonna pwn this noob boss so hard" or other equally ridiculous chatter. Multiplayer games have created public awkwardness in libraries and college/uni computer labs before (all the way back to MUD days), but... just watch, it will happen
