This catchy buzzword appears to have taken off quite well. (There seems a bit of redundancy there: if a word isn’t catchy or doesn’t take off well, is it even a buzzword?)

A glasshole is someone who behaves like an asshole with respect to their use of Google Glass.

In spoken form, it works okay for southern British and for Australian English, because we say /glɑːs/ and /ɑːshəʊl/. A bit less satisfying when written. I suppose we could say glarsehole.

To a non-British, non-Australian, non-American, OPTipping, “glasshole” reads and sounds perfectly comprehensible, however one says it --- and as pithy as could be wished (Note: I am not, be it underthtood, confuthing one hole here with another).

Restaurant customer to waitress: “I’ll have two pissoles, please”.

Waitress (grabbing menu and checking): “That’s not a “P”, that’s an “R"!"

Customer: “All right—I’ll have two arseholes, then”.

That is one of my favourite jokes!

And on a related theme:

There was a young girl from Madras
Who had an incredible ass
Not round and pink
As perhaps you would think
But grey, with long ears, and ate grass.
