As Schmidt speaks of caution, Google Glass gets hacked

Not long after Google’s Eric Schmidt talks of how apps for Glass will require Google’s approval, a renowned hacker/developer gains access to the gadget’s operating system. But just what might that mean? 

The most important question remains, is the user information safe with these smart gadgets? These smart gadgets and their strong coupling relationship with Personally identifiable information (PII) including full location, camera etc which is prone to be taken over by a compromised computer or malware.

These smart devices are user data centric & it is compelling to create new security solutions that are hardware-agnostic. Therefore, there is a clear need and demand for PII data to be protected in the case of loss, theft, or capture of the hardware.
