Google Glass tester? Don't dare try to sell your new toy.
Google Glass test units are rolling 'off the production line,' Google has announced. But there are lots of rules attached.
If they do, the terms continues, "Google reserves the right to deactivate the device, and neither [the user] nor the unauthorized person using the device will be entitled to any refund, product support, or product warranty."
In other words, if you decide to sell your Glass headset to your best friend for a couple thousand bucks, and Google catches wind of the transaction, the Mountain View giant can remotely wipe out the capabilities of the glasses, leaving your buddy with a futuristic-looking but useless chunk of plastic.
As the Los Angeles Times notes, the restriction on reselling/loans likely has two purposes: it helps keep Glass away from competitors, and it helps prevent testers from charging exorbitant prices for the gear.
