Google, which relies on advertising for some 95 percent of its
revenue, doesn’t want ads on its hotly anticipated Google Glass
The blanket prohibition came in the fine print of a policy made
public this evening, which says “Glassware” developers may not
“serve or include any advertisements” and they “may not charge”
users to download apps for the device.
Sounds like a shit sandwich to me, but perhaps these restrictions are only for the here and now, while Glass is still a developer preview. (I’ll also point out that prohibiting third-party apps from showing ads is not the same thing as not displaying ads period. Could be that Google is reserving all Glass advertising for itself.)
