Companies who lie

I don't believe...

  • Oil companies who tell us they like it when we use less energy.
  • Cigarette companies who tell us we should quit.
  • People who sell us a guaranteed wealth generating system. If their system worked they would keep it to themselves.
  • Pharmaceutical companies who say they are looking for a cure. The money is in treatment, not cure.
  • Any diet pill ad that uses the word "metabolism". They always say "combined with proper diet and exercise." If you had proper diet and exercise, you wouldn't need the pill.
  • Car companies that introduce 35 mile per gallon cars as fuel-efficient. We had more fuel-efficient cars in the 70s.
  • Any chemical that keeps fruit "looking fresh". I want my fruit to be fresh!

I do believe...

  • An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
  • Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.
  • A penny saved is a penny earned.

I try not to play the "help the disabled guy" card.  It goes against my nature. But in this case, I figured I'd make an exception (at least this is how I'm rationalizing it in my own head).

Google Glass has amazing potential for people like me. I can't use my arms or legs any longer. I use my voice recognition software to type, design websites, write articles and marketing plans for clients.

In the era of smart phones, they aren't very friendly to people like me. Most of them can't be navigated with a mouse, and even Apple's Siri doesn't do a great job with voice activation. First, you have to press a button just to get her attention.

but with this device, which connects through my android phone, I'd be able to read email and navigate my basic telephone functions with wearable g…
