    Hi, everyone! Welcome to CNET's live blog of Google's 'Breakfast with Sundar Pichai' event!
  • Kent German 7/24/2013 3:32:03 PM
    I'll be hosting you until the event gets underway at 9am PT.
  • Kent German 7/24/2013 3:33:27 PM
    Right now our CNET team of Jessica Dolcourt, Seth Rosenblatt, and James Martin are waiting to enter the breakfast in SF's Dogptach neighborhood. Once they get in and set up, they'll take over to bring you the news and sights.
  • George 7/24/2013 3:34:58 PM
    So what exactly is for breakfast (eating, wise...)?
  • Kent German 7/24/2013 3:35:24 PM
    @George: I'm not sure, but Seth and Jessica will let us know.
  • Eric Sims 7/24/2013 3:35:26 PM
    So the event doesn't start for another two hours?
  • Kent German 7/24/2013 3:35:50 PM
    @Eric: The event begins in less than half an hour...at 9:00 am Pacific Time.
  • HowieSB 7/24/2013 3:36:50 PM
    Jelly Beans for breakfast!
  • Kent German 7/24/2013 3:37:06 PM
    @Howie: Or maybe, Key Lime Pie.
  • Kent German 7/24/2013 3:39:36 PM
    Already, the revamped Nexus 7 has leaked. We expected at least that from this event, but there should be more. Possibilities include an Android OS update (Google I/O did not deliver that this year).
  • Jessica Dolcourt 7/24/2013 3:40:59 PM
    Hey everyone! We're settling in at this event space. We're seated at round white tables and there is actually a really nice breakfast bar.
  • Kent German 7/24/2013 3:41:16 PM
    Hi, Jessica!
  • Eric Lucido 7/24/2013 3:41:30 PM
    Yes, google i/o 2013 was very disappointing
  • Kent German 7/24/2013 3:42:47 PM
    Another thing that I/O didn't give us this year was a new Nexus device. That seems unlikely here, but you never know.
  • aj 7/24/2013 3:42:53 PM
    Google I/O was awesome.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 7/24/2013 3:43:10 PM
    I'm seeing coffee in fluted glasses and we're listening to some easy listening alt rock.
  • AndrewC 7/24/2013 3:44:27 PM
    Do you expect a new Nexus phone with the Moto X being unvealed soon?
  • Kent German 7/24/2013 3:45:36 PM
    @AndrewC: Good question: The Moto X may very well be a Nexus-y device. It will be revealed next Thursday (Aug. 1) at an event in NY.
  • Ayush 7/24/2013 3:45:46 PM
    Greeting from India!!! Excited for this product launch!!!!
  • Eric Lucido 7/24/2013 3:47:28 PM
    How long is this event?
  • Kent German 7/24/2013 3:47:59 PM
    @Eric: About an hour, I would guess. Maybe longer. But we'll be here through the whole thing to bring you the story.
  • Jitender 7/24/2013 3:48:17 PM
    Waiting for latest android update announce for nexus family
  • Kent German 7/24/2013 3:50:03 PM
    Rest assured that the feed will start when the event begins. Right now, people are still gathering in the room and getting their breakfast.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 7/24/2013 3:50:18 PM
    We're still sitting here waiting for things to happen. Right now it looks like some Google people are congregating.
  • Alex 7/24/2013 3:51:37 PM
    Is anything Google Glass related expected today?
  • Jessica Dolcourt 7/24/2013 3:51:49 PM
    We've moved from easy listening rock to Beck's Devil's Haircut. I heartily approve.
  • seth.rosenblatt 7/24/2013 3:52:05 PM
    Nothing from Glass expected.
  • Kent German 7/24/2013 3:52:19 PM
    @Alex: personally, I doubt it. Sundar is Google's Android chief, so the focus should remain there.
  • Waldo S. Rincón Ricardo 7/24/2013 3:52:32 PM
    It´s almost 12:00 p. m. in Dominican Republic and i´m super excited abut new Nexus 7. since i got mine, i´m totally in love with Google. Let´s see what happens today!! :)
  • Jessica Dolcourt 7/24/2013 3:52:52 PM
    It's like he's in the future!!!
  • Jessica Dolcourt 7/24/2013 3:53:18 PM
    However, I did see a journalist here who's *wearing* Google Glass...
  • Jessica Dolcourt 7/24/2013 3:54:46 PM
    I'm hoping that in addition to the Nexus 7 and Android 4.3, we'll also see the Nexus 5. Who's with me?
  • Muhammad 7/24/2013 3:54:52 PM
    hello from Pakistan... it's almost 9PM here!
  • Kent German 7/24/2013 3:55:07 PM
    @Muhammad: Hello, opposite side of the world!
  • hemant 7/24/2013 3:55:28 PM
    I hope they come out with stylus or something similar to s pen
  • Jessica Dolcourt 7/24/2013 3:55:59 PM
    It's a pretty small, cozy group. You know, just about 100 journalists, hanging out, having breakfast with Sundar.
  • James Martin 7/24/2013 3:57:55 PM
  • InverseSandwich 7/24/2013 3:59:05 PM
    @JamesMartin Yum!
  • James Martin 7/24/2013 3:59:56 PM
  • Kent German 7/24/2013 4:00:09 PM
    It appears Google is having technical issues with the live stream. Hopefully, they'll sort out the problem soon so please be patient.
  • Bhavik 7/24/2013 4:00:29 PM
    Hi From Canada! Do you think that there will be a update for chrome?
  • Jessica Dolcourt 7/24/2013 4:00:36 PM
    I personally think it's a little weird to seat blogging journalists at round tables. At least 1/4 of them are going to have their backs to the stage, or else will have to twist awkwardly or just blog from their laps. Not good.
  • James Martin 7/24/2013 4:01:57 PM
  • seth.rosenblatt 7/24/2013 4:02:10 PM
    @Bhavik I would be surprised if we didn't get a new Chromebook... possibly a Chrome tablet.
  • sgurpartap 7/24/2013 4:02:34 PM
    its live!!
