    "Universal data controls" get a tepid applause.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 4:56:47 PM
    Sundar is a bit vague about "factory reset protection" -- just saying that people can reset their phones remotely. Would love some more details on that, especially whether it's enough to appease those calling for remote lock/wipe legislation.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 4:57:00 PM
    Okay, let's talk devices!
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 4:57:19 PM
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 4:57:24 PM
    Watch icon shows up on multiple screen graphic - TV, home, phone, car, and watch.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 4:57:40 PM
    ...and computer, of course.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 4:58:02 PM

    Pichai talking about "experiences": contextually aware, voice enabled, seamless between devices, but mobile (smartphone) first.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 4:58:24 PM
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 4:58:37 PM
    Wearables up first.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 4:58:52 PM

    David Singleton, dierctor of Android engineering takes the stage.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 4:59:13 PM
    He appears to be wearing the LG G watch.

    "The watch will act as your key in a mutli-screen world," says Singleton.

    "People check their Android phone 125 times every day."
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:00:41 PM
    Wondering why you want a smartwatch? There you go. Reaching for your phone 125 times is a bit tedious, especially if it's in the bottom of your purse.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 5:00:43 PM
    Live demo of LG G watch
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:00:49 PM
    And my purse is always overflowing with junk, I don't know about you guys.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 5:00:59 PM
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 5:01:21 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:01:36 PM
    I gotta say, the display quality on the G looks awful. I know it's small and on a wrist, but the contrast and clarity are very poor.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 5:01:38 PM
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 5:01:45 PM
    Android Wear will show a mix of cards from your phone and the watch itself.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 5:01:51 PM
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 5:02:09 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:02:20 PM
    Lots of watch faces, natch.

    Reminders are immediately synced from watch to phone.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:03:15 PM
    "Remind me to check my mailbox when I get home." Come on, now. Who isn't giddy at checking their mailbox for packages whenever they get home? Do we really need a smartwatch for this?

    First demo doesn't stick for the double-sided peanut jar.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 5:04:03 PM
    Nor does the second.
