    And we're in our seats! Greetings.

    A very, very loud car horn just went off. For a long time. That was weird... someone trip the alarm?
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 3:42:03 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 3:42:20 PM
    There's some light ambient trance rolling now, which isn't a bad way to get the morning rolling.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 3:43:13 PM
    The room is mostly lit in purples and blue, with a large white "I/O" up front.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 3:43:45 PM
    The stage is huge, wide, with some strange contraption on the far right.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 3:44:20 PM
    The stage is massive, well over 100 feet long. Plenty of room to roll out a car... or three. We're definitely expecting automotive to be a big piece of the story today.

    im actually not that interested in nest.. however i can't wait to see the wearables. I hope it's standardized across all wearable platforms (glass, watch, anything else?) in terms of a unified API. That'd make developing on my google glass cooler knowing that if i got a watch it'd work there too.
  • Justin 6/25/2014 3:44:28 PM
    Blue Google Glasses, Very classy.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 3:45:35 PM
    We'd love to hear your predictions and expectations for the day, the more wild the better. Hit us up on Twitter. I'm @Tim_Stevens. The full crew is @Jamesco, @richardjnieva, @sethr, @onegarzon, and @rachelking.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 3:45:45 PM
    Yes, we've got a lot of folks here. We roll deep.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 3:46:28 PM
    No actual cars on stage just yet, but there is what auto-makers call a "blank" -- basically a car interior minus the car itself. An infotainment demo of sorts is definitely in the cards.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 3:46:59 PM
    Red 5, standing by.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 3:47:28 PM
    People are milling in and taking their seats. We have about 13 minutes until proper go-time.
  • Pratik 6/25/2014 3:47:46 PM
    Great to see you guys! What are you guys looking forward to from Google today?
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 3:47:48 PM
    We're seated four rows back, so that James can bring you some killer photography. And to help our eyes, too.
  • JP 6/25/2014 3:48:11 PM
    Apple says that 95% are on iOS 7, but how can that be when iPhone 1-3 do not run iOS 7. So where are all those devices in the numbers?
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 3:48:23 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 3:48:29 PM
    We're told that there's a power strip coming, which will also ensure great coverage from our crew here on the ground.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 3:49:42 PM
    We've moved from trance to some sort of rock, sounds vaguely Janes Addiction-esque, but we're drawing a blank. And darn it, I don't have Shazam installed. Where's my Fire Phone?
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 3:49:50 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 3:50:20 PM
    Yep, that's us. Do we look ready to roll? Because we're ready to roll. Maybe even rock, too.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 3:50:24 PM
    And then nap.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 3:51:48 PM
    So the contraption on the right is some sort of crazy Rube Goldberg machine, powered by giant ball bearings and a bowling ball. It's a clock of some sort, a giant, mechanical, clock that is very much the antithesis of an Android widget.
