Google Forbids Advertising On Glass

An anonymous reader writes “Contrary to widespread thought, Google Glass will not be an advertising platform: ‘Google Inc has lately told app developers that they are not allowed to present ads to Google Glass users and they are also not permitted to sell users’ personal and private information for the fulfillment of advertising needs. The internet company has explicitly and openly said that the Glass platform should and must be clean and clear of any ads whatsoever, because the technology is designed to facilitate internet browsing and other related activities, therefore, the featured podium cannot be used to advertise products as it will cause the user experience to diminish.’ Seems like Google is going for hardware-only revenue on this one.” You’re not supposed to resell the Glass hardware, either.
