I hear what you're saying about the Apple Newton. I rememer those devices well. They were very expensive, and most people were used to keeping a paper organizer at the time. It was a very specialized device aimed at a very specific consumer base.
I don't think Google Glass will wind up like the Newton though. People today are scrambling over each other for the latest in technology. The same can't exactly couldn't be said back when the Apple Newton was around. Back then, just having a good home PC/printer combo was "something". If you look at ads from CompUSA and the like back then, a good PackardBell (remember those?!) would run you upwards of $3,000.
It took a long time for people to come to adpot computer technology into their everyday lives -- but now that we have to have everything everywhere (music, photos, camera, phone, internet, ect ect) -- I think Google Glass will do quite well. I'd wait 2-3 generations before adpoting it ... I'd like to see how and if it gets abused (and wait for the price to drop!)
