Google Glass will not let you swear

Neowin writes Robert Scoble discovered that Google Glass will not let you swear, the device's voice-to-text automatically censors nasty words.
But just as with other Android devices, the voice-to-text interpretation automatically censors your text, as Geek.com notes. Drop an F-bomb and it will appear as f***; try to send a naughty text to someone, and all those terrible things that you said you’d do to them with the rubber chicken and the pineapple will be mercilessly edited in a s***storm of asterisks.

Of course, most voice-to-text interpretation services perform a similar function – but in most situations, the presence of a keyboard enables you to manually edit the text so that it reads as you intended. Given the absence of that alternative on Glass, you might think that Google would offer adjustable settings to allow you to express yourself with all the filth and smut that your dirty, rotten mind can come up with – but alas, Google offers no such controls.
Perhaps the final version of Glass will feature an option to turn the voice to text censorship off, such a setting is found in the Settings menu on Android phones.
