There's no doubt that anyone who loves Android, Chrome, or Google in general wanted to be at I/O this year. Unfortunately, most of us didn't get the opportunity to experience everything I/O has to offer in person, but Google livestreams basically all events, so we got to watch I/O from afar.

While it lacked certain things that we expected to see (like a new version of Android), that didn't stop the wow!

The Google Glass Explorer program is all about experimentation, hacking, and learning. With that in mind, Google has already posted the factory image for the XE6 update from earlier today. Hooray for openness! You know... if you're lucky enough to be in the super-exclusive Explorer program.

Here is the full changelog provided to us by the Glass team:

Google Glass update version XE6:

  • Better photos through Glass
  • Voice annotate your photos and videos when sharing
  • Improvements to On-Head Detection.

Google is slowly adding the new slide-out navigation menu to all of its major Android apps, and today it's YouTube's turn. The latest incremental update to the official video app doesn't add a whole lot more than that, but what's there is handy: the menu that used to be available via the "app button" in the upper-left corner only on the homescreen is now enabled on all standard UI screens with a quick swipe to the left, just like in the shiny new version of Gmail.

If you've been on the fence about about picking up the white version of the Nexus 4 that just hit the store three days ago, the decision has been made for you if the sixteen gigger was your peach. As of this moment, Google is "temporarily out of stock" of the sparkly white flagship with 16GBs of storage, but if happen to think eight geebees may do the job, then you're still in luck.

Listen up, developers. Google knows you like its cloud platform, but all that arduous setup and coding... yikes. That's why Google is launching a new one-click solution to power apps with a ready-made cloud backend and application framework. It's called Mobile Backend Starter, which pretty well describes what it does.

It was only a matter of time before the first facial recognition project for Google Glass was started. That project was announced earlier this week by Lambda Labs, and the Google Glass team has now backed away from the technology on Google+. According to the post, Google won't approve any "Glassware" utilizing facial recognition due to privacy concerns. The key word here is approve.

Here's some unexpected news. Two new livestream videos have popped up on Google's Developers website, counting down to their respective start times. Both are marked as events especially for the mobile version of Chrome (presumably Android and iOS), and both have no more details to share at the moment. The first livestream is scheduled to start on June 7th at 1PM Eastern Daylight Time, the second is scheduled for June 13th at 11AM EDT.

I really want to live and eat more healthily, but lets be frank - it's rough. When it comes to exercising, staying disciplined is hard. When it comes to eating nutritious foods, ignorance is easy. For better or worse, that last excuse is going away now that Google is dragging nutrition information into search results. Ask your phone how many calories are in that bucket of popcorn, and let the guilt sink in.

In South Korea, the market for smartphones is vicious: Samsung leads the pack, as is the case almost everywhere, with fellow Korean company LG behind them in second place. It's strange, then, that the Play Store has not sold LG's own Nexus 4 to the Republic of Korea itself. That changed yesterday, as the Nexus 4 goes on sale in the Play Store in South Korea for the first time... just six and a half months after it launched.
