Google To Deactivate "Explorer Edition" Glass If They’re Sold











"Explorer Edition" prototype Google Glass makes you the legal owner: Wired dug into the terms of service to find that Google is effectively treating the limited edition gadget like a piece of software:

You may not resell, loan, transfer, or give your device to any other person. If you resell, loan, transfer, or give your device to any other person without Google’s authorization, Google reserves the right to deactivate the device, and neither you nor the unauthorized person using the device will be entitled to any refund, product support, or product warranty.

We’re assuming this is because the Explorer Edition is specifically aimed at developers and influencers, but that’s still a rather surprising condition to find in a hardware device.
