It's not always desirable to be first. Luke Wroblewski, a digital product design and strategy guy living in Silicon Valley knows this as well as anyone. Poor Luke managed to misplace his Google Glass
, earning him the distinction of being the first to do so, according to Google
"So according to @googleglass support, I have the dubious honor of being the first person to lose a Google Glass. #yahme," Luke posted on this Twitter account
Losing a Google Glass at this stage is troubling for a number of reasons. There's the financial hit, which is quite significant at $1,500, but there are also privacy concerns; Luke had linked his Google Glass to various accounts. Lucky for him, Google allows users to delete data from Glass remotely, though he's hoping a do-good citizen finds them and returns them.
Unlike early iPhone prototypes that have a tendency to be left behind in bars
, Luke lost his Google Glass at an airport, according to VentureBeat
, which communicated with Luke via email. He thinks it may have slipped out of his bag when going through airport security. Should he get them back, he said he'll used a zippered pocket next time.
