Google should sue Apple if they introduce their own version. May as well keep the cycle going.
Yes, I agree, though these companies use the courts as part of their businesss strategy at the tax payers expense while hiding billions in an effort to avoid paying their fair share in taxes...

Once Glass launches we see more variety ( there are plenty competitors already) of that type wearable. If I was a company so, I would be working on a simular product, while Google get all legal issues kinked out, and wait what consumers do. Glass is so let's say in your face that it may be difficult for public to get used people wearing it. From my experience ( specially here in Germany) people just stare and look away but then can't help but stare some more.

I wouldn't assume board members have any direct say in developing new products.

I think Apple will wait several years to see how Google Glass is doing. If it wont't fail, Apple will create something similar, but better.:)

If Apple patents something, it usually means this thing will be on the market at least five years later.

not really, they patent all kinds of stuff that never comes to fruition.

Patents are ways companies sometimes try to cash in on other companies that create new products by charging them for the use of patents or just suing them for infringement if they use them without permission.

If and when, I'm curious what "iName" Apple would call their version of Glasses? Like "iSee" or "iSpecs".
