Get, that, dirt off your shoulder

This is almost comically misguided. Glass will succeed or fail on its own merits, just as most mass market products do. The problem with Segway wasn’t that Peter Shankman drew attention to himself by riding it all over New York. The problem with Segway is that almost no one wanted a $4000 scooter, and the only people that Segway did appeal to were socially-maladjusted, self-centered, self-important, “Hey everybody, look at me! I’m using this ostentatious expensive new gadget!” blowhards like Peter Shankman.
But so, yes, I do think Glass is headed for the same fate as Segway.
I would note, there will still be a place for Google Glass, in it’s current form, in niche markets. The same has happened with Segway. For instance: Police Departments have increased the area an officer can patrol w/out being in a car by utilizing Segways.
