Wow, do people have animosity toward the early adopter set sporting Google Glass. From the coffee shops of Silicon Valley to the cocktail parties of NYC, one word sums up the opinions of the haters: Douchebag, or, in new parlance, Glasshole. 
Even before it came out for the Explorer program, the Glass was deemed The Douchebag Accessory of Choice.
