Here we are, in the front row of the first keynote at what is probably the most exciting conference of the year - Google I/O. This time around we're using a slightly different, and I think much better solution compared to CoverItLive - ScribbleLive. ScribbleLive lets us do all the things CiL didn't - most importantly, we can finally start to actually enjoy managing the reporting side of the live blog as opposed to fighting it.

We've talked a lot about Google I/O this year. A lot. Some things, like the Nexus 7, are pretty much a sure thing at this point. Other things - we'll just have to see. But enough chit-chat, exciting Google announcements await below. There's no need to refresh this page, just keep it open, kick back, relax, and let us do the reporting.

    I'm loving this. Only problem is, how long before manufactures actually update. ICS is still barely out there.

      That's exactly the problem with the whole Android platform -- Google simply does not have a way to respond to its competitor in a timely manner. Think about that, Siri was released a little bit over half year ago. Google Now isn't particularly late to compete with it if all top tier Android smartphones have it when JB is released to the public. But that won't be the case. Most Android phones probably won't see Google Now until mid next year, that's 1.5 years after Siri was launched -- it's like a decade in mobile computing.

    Google Now is great, but waiting for the JB update on Verizon Galaxy Nexus? Sigh ...
