    Google Glass Mk2, a socket in your neck.

    Because they can't possibly expect any sane person to fall for it?

    about the same price as plebs pay for a subsidsed iPhone on contract over 24 months.

    So how come that's not getting ratted out on it's price?

      duh, because I'm using it as a PHONE and I receive phone calls and mobile data on it.

      Any phone, without service, is useless unless you're in your parents basement gaffling someone else's wifi.
