When Tech Giants Have To Face Failure

Whether it was not the first time when Apple made mistake on stage but it is not a small bug. This is a whole technology failure. People around the globe have also faced the same problem. Some time it gets unlocked by someone with little similar face. And some time it couldn’t unlock via registered face. Media have raised questions on Security and Privacy.
Every year Google comes with something new, something awesome. With bunch of new technology each time, people make higher expectations from it. Recently Google introduces Google Glass that is one of its coolest gadgets ever. One of the main concerns was Safety/ Privacy and Health issues. It is a device that is emitting radiation so close to your head. What else one need to concern about? Also its camera can be recording and clicking photos anytime. So you can’t guarantee your privacy. Also wearing an unattractive device in a crowd is not always a good option with that price.
