Although it's too early to give a judgement call on the device, considering that it still isn't out on the market yet, when it does actually come out, there's gonna be precious little to compare it to. The initial reactions to the device will be majorly based on the what the developers intend it to be.
Imagine what kind of privacy issues the device will create when it actually comes to the market. Everyone can be potentially spying on everyone! Already clubs and bars have decided to eject anyone found wearing these Internet-connected toys within it's premises. But where's the harm, you might ask? The problem is, these kind of devices raise all kinds of legal issues. Like being filmed without consent. Being a part of someone else's data collection, does that scare you? What you think will happen when you put on the Glass for the first time? You'll be presented with a lot of legal jargon in the form of "End User License Agreement", which by the way will absolve Google of all responsibility relating to how you use the device, where the data goes and who sees it. Invariably, you will click the "Agree" button without so much as a glance to the content written.
You're probably gonna use the Glass as Ski Goggles, but you're gonna crash because you're not paying attention

Google Glass seems like an obvious threat to our ability to process things in real time. But what about our brain's ability to store that data? Leonardo Giusti, a post-doctoral researcher at the MIT Mobile Experience Lab, says that Glass over time will also undermine our long-term memory. "The instantaneous access to pertinent information, about objects, places or people, will reduce the need to retain information in a long-term perspective," he says. "Potentially, it could progressively weaken our ability to remember."

What comes as a pleasant surprise is the availability and pricing of the phone, having been launched at a price close to that of it's closest competitor, the HTC One, which sells at Rs 42,990. Even iPhone 5 sells at Rs 45,990.

The most dangerous of the robots will be the military ones. These are semi-autonomous and have some serious firepower. In the future scenario where almost everything will be automated, including fuel processing and extraction. The robots could make their own fuel! They could potentially make more robots through self replicating nanomaterials. Imagine what would it be like. And that brings me to the conventional weaponry. Although to trigger a missile (maybe even a nuclear one), some human element has to be there. But since our "pets" have now acquired sentience, they could manipulate people and get them to turn the keys or something. There has gotta be some kind of a Darth Vader personality in every apocalypse scenario to ruin it for the good people, right!?

Earlier, there were plans of an HTC Windows Phone 8 device called "Zenith" with a 4.7-inch screen, but it has been cancelled supposedly because the device had lower resolution than other devices in the market. Which, makes one think that this could also be a push by the OEM partners to further develop the Windows Phone 8.
Whatever the case. Rejoice, WP8 users!

The phone will feature a 1.4 GHz dual core processor, 1.5 GB of RAM, qHD display (5.8 inch as you already know). There will be an 8MP rear camera and a 2MP front one. Now I atleast don't know what to make of this phone. This is one of those devices that are just on the cusp of high-end and mid-range. Plus such a low resolution doesn't really help to push it towards the hardware intensive devices.
As can be expected from any Samsung device nowadays, the phone will launch with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and of course there will be the TouchWiz UI running over it. There were also talks of a 6.3 inch device doing rounds on the internet which will be named the Mega 6.3. Now this screen size is the same as what the Note III is rumoured to pack, but because of the code name not being Nxxxx as with the Note series, these devices will lack the S-Pen functionality.
