Last week, Google unveiled their new updated Google Glass models and informed current Glass owners that they could invite up to 3 friends whom would be eligible to buy the updated device for the same $1,500 price tag. When the Explorer editions were first released, Google required eligible buyers to meet at the closest pick-up location to meet with a Google representative and receive their Glass unit in-person.

This time around, Google is allowing the updated Glass models to be shipped to U.S. addresses, however they require all new Glass owners join a personal Google+ hangout with a Google representative to help them through the entire setup process and offer background history about the device.

From a consumer standpoint, it seems like this one-on-one treatment from Google is a great idea and shows their commitment to providing superior support for their product, however it does worry me a bit that they are willing to spend the extra time and resources to show you how to use their device which is marketed to be user-friendly instead of simply offering a traditional “quick-start” guide.
