Last night, Google released its companion app for its yearly developer conference, ‘Google I/O’. While the conference is mainly for developers, Android fans all over the world get excited for
If you plan to go to Google IO 2012 then you will want to get up nice and early!
Well that didn’t take long, yet another testament as to why we all love using the Android OS. The snazzy Galaxy Tab 10.1’s that Google handed out to lucky I/O attendees have already been rooted, giving access to the entire device for our grubby little hands to take advantage of. Android Central reported that the process is super easy, simply push a zip file over ADB, reboot into recovery then execute said zip.
We will be live blogging the day two Keynote from Google I/O, taking place in just 90 minutes! If you are at work or at a place where you cannot watch or listen, keep this article up and it will keep you up to date of all the latest announcements from our favorite search giant!
Along with Google Music, the search giant had a big surprise in store for Android enthusiasts at I/O today. We are pleased to report that Google has launched a movie rental and streaming service on Android!
Simple entitled, “Movies”, the service will allow you to rent and purchase movies right on your Android devices, and even allowing you to watch the media on Android web Market! The setup will be familiar to you, as when you rent a video you have up to 30 days to initialize the viewing, then 24 hours to watch the content.
Without knowing all the details, it stuns me that record labels in America continue to be very short sighted about the fact that the vast majority of consumers get their music digitally from the internet. Perhaps they are still smarting over the Napster debacle from the 90’s, but if an internet giant like Google came to me and said, “Hey, let’s launch a killer service that all of our users will have access to and will get you guys paid, but it will be in a different way than you are used to.”, I would sit up and listen and most likely act. Not so with the current major recording companies, as Engadget is reporting that someone has leaked that Google Music will be announced today at I/O, but as a cloud storage and streaming service rather than a subscription based offering. And the labels wonder why the continue to hemorrhage money.
Google I/O may have sold out fast (59 minutes fast), but the Big G has decided to put the ENTIRE event online. They said it would include, “streaming of the keynotes, as in years past, as well as—new for 2011—the addition of sessions from Android and Chrome. We’ll also aim to post HD video recordings from sessions that are not livestreamed within 24 hours.” Sounds great
There is now yet another reason I wish I was a developer, namely the fact that Google has now decided to give away 100 tickets to it’s sold out developer conference, Google I/O! This is not just a normal giveaway though, it is totally geared towards developers who can acutally, well, develop. Here is a quote from Google’s blog talking about the contest:
I’m still sitting in my chair, shaking. I haven’t feel this way since I bought my lucky ticket to see Rolling Stones back in 2005. Yes, I did it – I will go to Google IO 2011! But why in age of the “cloud” it had to be such an awful, painful experience?
That’s right! Tomorrow night at 7PM Pacific/10PM Eastern we will be recapping all of the Android news from Google IO 2010! You will definitely want to tune in live to
