    New Android Extension Pack coming in L. A set of features to help with tessellation, shaders, and texture compression, Burke says.

    This demo has extra bass. I think what we're learning is that the new Android L has big bass.

    Watching the Unreal Engine 4 render 3D graphics. It's a little janky, but smoother than I expected.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 4:49:00 PM
    Burke blames the flickers that I saw on the "electromagnetic storm" on stage.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 4:49:13 PM
    Pretty funny demos, two macho dudes who looked like they were going to fight. Instead they turned to an arcade cabinet called "Flappy Chicken." Plenty of laughs.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 4:49:17 PM
    Funny video, two decked out warriors playing Flappy Bird.

    Now up, battery life. Project Volta
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 4:49:59 PM
    They're making a series of improvements for battery life, looking at Wi-Fi, cellular antennas, displays, etc.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 4:50:06 PM
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 4:50:11 PM
    Improved instrumentation of battery data.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 4:50:37 PM
    Uh oh, we have a protester here. Someone being evicted.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 4:50:42 PM
    Protester screaming at the audience.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 4:50:46 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 4:50:49 PM
    There's a security lady right here not helping at all.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 4:51:05 PM
    Blaming Jack Halprin for her eviction.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 4:51:22 PM
    Weird that Burke just kept talking over her.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 4:51:24 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 4:51:25 PM
    She was finally escorted away. Big applause for that.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 4:51:45 PM
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 4:51:59 PM
    Burke still talking about battery life.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 4:52:05 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 4:52:12 PM
    "Enough battery life for a long protest" - ZING!
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 4:52:19 PM
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 4:52:26 PM
    Cheers from the audience for Burke's joke.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 4:52:39 PM

    Sundar is back on stage.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 4:53:23 PM
    Developers can get rolling today, but it sounds like we still have a long wait before it comes out. Will it beat iOS 8 to release? We shall see.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 4:53:29 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 4:53:41 PM
    5,000 new APIs. Developers love APIs. At least, well-documented ones.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 4:53:44 PM
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 4:54:13 PM
    "We're building a open platform at scale" says Sundar.

    A bit of a dig at Apple: "Custom keyboards, widgets, those things happened in Android four to five years ago," says Pichai.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 4:55:02 PM
    Sundar taking shots at iOS, now. I can't say as I enjoy this sort of thing, but it certainly is provocative. It gets the people goin'.
