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.

There is one. Attendees agree to follow the posted rules in return for permission to attend. A concealed recording device is banned by inclusion.
Nothing special about Glass, they, like many other Android devices are recorders and recording devices are banned without regard to manufacturer, distributor, OS or lack of OS.
