We're learning more about why Google Glass failed, thanks to "the worst product of all time."

Some people were also putt off by Glass invading their privacy and worried it could be used to steal their personal information.

Sergei Brin's romance with Glass marketing manager Amanda Rosenberg also reportedly contributed to Glass' downfall. Early team members left after news of the affair became public.

Google Glass isn't technically dead forever — the company is simply no longer selling the original prototype unit. Google took it out of the X Lab and handed responsibility to Tony Fadell, a former Apple exec who now runs Google's Nest unit. He's working with Ivy Ross, a veteran of the retail and art worlds.
