When Google announced the #ifihadglass competition to win a chance to buy a pair of Google Glass, Google laid out some simple rules. Now that the competition has come to a close, Google has been taking a closer look at those it invited to join the Explorer Program and has found some that broke the rules.
Google has rescinded invitations for those who they have found broke their simple rules. Google said that it can't award Glass to applicants that "did not comply with our terms and slipped through the cracks."
We need honest feedback from people who are not only enthralled and excited by Glass, but also people who are skeptical and critical of it. As for the rest of you, please keep that feedback coming - it's all in the Explorer program spirit!
Google's rules said that an applicant had to be 18 at the time of submission, have a Twitter and Google+ account that remained active until June 1, and be located in the US. Not too difficult, though we understand why some people might try and get Glass outside the US--they are sweet!
