Submission + - Theater chain bans Google Glass (arstechnica.com)

mpicpp writes: A cinema chain announced Tuesday that it is now barring patrons from wearing Google Glass at its movie houses across the US in a bid to clamp down on piracy.

Alamo Drafthouse, which runs theaters in Colorado, Michigan, Missouri, Texas, Virginia, and soon in California, is among the first US chains to ban Google's computerized eyewear.

"Google Glass is officially banned from @drafthouse auditoriums once lights dim for trailers," the chain's chief executive, Tim League, tweeted. The decision comes as Google has made the eyewear readily available to the general public, and it follows a slew of incidents in which wearers of Google Glass have had brushes with the law.

Trying to be happy is like trying to build a machine for which the only specification is that it should run noiselessly.
