If there's one thing I learned is that it's pointless to argue with a police officer.
I save myself the aggravation, take the ticket and fight it later in front of a judge. Or, if it's a clear cut case, I simply do Trial by Declaration. I never had to paid a ticket doing this.
Released in Feb 2013 ?

"The Explorer Edition of Google Glass, which costs a hefty $1500, was released in February 2013. "
I wouldn't call that released. It was available for dev's to purchase for a steep price ahead of the real consumer release so they can work on apps.
Anyhow, great that there will be prescription options. I cant wait to see where they go with with this product in a few years time.
