Wow! Today’s update for Google Glass is huge. XE7 – Version 7 of the Explorer Edition ships a mobile web browser that allows you to open links from your google search results. Also try searching “youtube <your favorite show>” to get the video stream displayed right on Glass. After XE6, which brought Photo quality improvements, XE7 seems like a big Power Up. Google Glass just became so much more powerful.
I consider myself lucky, getting one of the ~5000 Tickets for this year’s Google I/O, which sold out in 59 minutes. We heard exciting news about the next Version of Android “Ice Cream Sandwich”, which will fuse the latest Phone and Tablet Operating Systems Gingerbread and Honeycomb. On Day 2 Google announced the shipment of Chromebooks from different manufacturers. Chrome OS is Google’s Client system for Cloud based computers. Traditionally – like every year – attendants got a huge gift pack. I have to admit, I have never been so thrilled at a Technology Conference.
