The Facebook and Ray-Ban smart glasses look cool… but no thanks

Look, I’d love to try the Facebook and Ray-Ban smart glasses, but there is no way in hell I’d actually use these day-to-day. Facebook simply can’t be trusted. From Cambridge Analytica to scamming teens to sell off their personal data, Facebook has repeatedly and continually violated people’s privacy. Even moving beyond the never-ending array of scandals, the platform is essentially an advertizer. Its goal is to harvest your information to sell ads. That’s it. And you know what’s an absolutely fantastic data source? A pair of cameras attached to your head. Look, I’m sure Facebook will big up all the privacy aspects of its smart glasses at launch, but it’ll be like the Portal: all words, no substance.
