Thank you for the opportunity to join the recent wave of Google Glass Explorers last month. As a longtime user of Google products, I had been awaiting this opportunity ever since I didn’t make it into the ranks of Glass pioneers last year. The ability to integrate a heads-up display with my Google+, Google Play and Google Maps accounts was promising indeed, so I was thrilled to receive my package.
After three weeks of usage, I have changed my mind. Please find enclosed a charcoal-gray Glass Explorer Edition package. I anticipate my refund.
For further customer feedback, please read the following items.
1. Eye contact (or lack thereof)
2. Not a good listener
3. Battery death
6. Tilted photos
7. Directions drawbacks
8. Oh, that earbud
9. Explorer envy
10. Too little, too soon
