Now, you may be shaking your head at me not knowing whether to answer "WPA" or "WEP", but I'm going to guess that a lot of other consumers are going to be stumped by the choice - and, yes, we can Google it, but should we have to? As a lawyer, I have been trained not to use any terms someone may not understand without explaining them. Would it be too much to have a notation underneath explaining the difference or offering some technical guidance? But, that's a minor, UX (user experience) point.
Thinking it would be just as easy for me to try one, then the other if the first didn't work, I did just that. Both failed to connect, despite generating a QR code (part of the new network registration) and a signal saying that Glass was connecting.
So, when I get a moment, I'll try and stop by Google in NYC to see if they can help me. I don't have the time to go searching for an answer. ("Then maybe you don't have time to be an Explorer," someone will be quick to intone. I realized when I ventured into the program that my approach to exploring would be somewhat passive, seeing where the stream of iterations might take me, rather than me boating to different destinations.) Should it be so difficult? I think not.
But, Beware Suggesting that You Are Not Thrilled with Glass Or You May Be Targeted a "Bad Explorer"
When I have raised a general sense of disappointment with Glass, the response from some Explorers has to remind me that I signed up for a beta project, that cool stuff is being done in medicine, that cool recipes are being shared every holiday, etc., etc.. Blah, blah, blah. I would just like to be able to say that I have something that is pretty cool and easy to use, that makes my day a little easier and more interesting.
Nearly everyone is pretty excited when they first look into Glass. It would be much cooler, I would have to think, if I had connectivity on a consistent basis.
