No electronic or recordable devices are allowed
Google's shareholder meetings are so private, not even its own products are allowed in. Nonprofit organization Consumer Watchdog said Google executives are hypocrites for not allowing Google Glass into its shareholder meeting yesterday.
The 2013 annual meeting of Google shareholders, which took place in California on Thursday, instructed attendees not to bring smartphones, cameras or any other electronic or recording devices to the meeting.
These instructions included Google Glass, which is Google's
new wearable computer
with a head-mounted display. The Android-powered device responds to both voice recognition and touch, offering information right before the user's eyes.
"Google has unleashed one of the most privacy invasive devices ever," John M. Simpson, privacy project director at Consumer Watchdog, said in a press release. "Google Glass aids and abets people who want to invade our privacy by videoing or photographing us surreptitiously, but when it comes to their own privacy Google executives jealously guard it."
Earlier this week, Google encountered a hard situation when porn app company MiKandi launched a Google Glass app called
"Tits & Glass."
The app allows users to share, browse, comment, and vote on pornographic content from a point-of-view angle.
Google has since banned the app.

Waste of web space article, most do not allow cell phones and cameras in meetings.
The article only points out the glass, but im sure all the execs on android phones which were also NOT ALLOWED IN, yet no mention of that here.
Stupid story, meant to grab web hits, nothing more, waste of time.
"Spreading the rumors, it's very easy because the people who write about Apple want that story, and you can claim its credible because you spoke to someone at Apple." -- Investment guru Jim Cramer
