Early believers in Google Glass losing faith...?

After reading a recent article about Google Glass losing the early enthusiasm that it generated, I started thinking why this awesome technology gadget may not seem like a good fit for the modern tech enthusiast

Some thoughts:

  1. Looks like the modern enthusiast is tired of having gadgets sticking on him/ her and would like to have a "hands free" experience to the gadget.
  2. Also to me it wants users to wear Glasses all the time to do the same activities that you can pretty much do with the normal smartphone.
  3. Not many practical applications have been seen using the Glasses. There are other companies like Epson's Moverio who have targetted much more pragmatic use cases that the Google Glass and put a premium pricing just for that. Now that to me, makes some sense..
