    Android Wear SDK available today, though it's sort of already been out there for awhile now. But, now you can run code directly on devices. "Almost all the APIs" from Android are available on Wear, too.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:10:14 PM
    So, running apps directly. Should make porting easy.

    Oh, we've switched over to a Moto 360. Man, this looks about a zillion times nicer than the LG.

    Eat24, which I just used to order Thai on Sunday night, is up for the demo. Moto 360 is the watch being used for this demo

    I'd almost consider wearing the 360. Shiny...
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:11:53 PM
    Seriously, cleaner design, more beautiful screen. Hard to imagine anyone wanting the LG when they could have the Moto -- but we still wonder about cost, and availability.

    Google takes another stab at the Recipe Dilemma. There's heads-up recipe display on Glass, and now it's Android Wear's turn.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:12:48 PM
    Demo on the LG? Annoying popup from Pinterest. Demo on the Moto? Ordering a pizza. The cards were kind of stacked against the LG, I'm sorry to say.

    "All devices we're talking about today are water resistant" but are they scalding oil resistant?
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:13:54 PM
    "We're just getting started with this, but we're making voice available for some key actions today, and we'll be adding more in the coming months." - Voice could be the killer implementation, here, if people can get used to talking to their watch.

    Weird that Lyft is the "call a car" demo, given Google's investment in Uber.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 5:14:24 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:14:26 PM
    Did someone not get the memo?

    Also available to order later today on Play store.

    Moto 360 available later this summer.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 5:15:26 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:15:34 PM
    Lots of sad voices here in the room at the news the Moto 360 is coming later this summer.

    The Samsung Gear Live is the watch that CNET News' Shara Tibken broke word of last week.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:15:56 PM
    Time to talk about Android in the car!
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 5:16:03 PM

    Patrick Brady, director of engineering for Android now onstage
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:16:15 PM
    "Cars are an essential part of life," Brady says.

    "There's gotta be a better way" to make the connected car a reality and cut down on crashes.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:17:14 PM
    They're calling it Android Auto, not Auto Link, which was the original name for the platform.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 5:17:18 PM
    AndroidAuto
