    Hairy moment near a skyscraper there...
  • stephen.shankland 6/28/2012 6:20:41 PM
    The audience wasn't nearly as edge-of-seat as yesterday, though this was fun again. Nobody worrying whether this would be a "snuff keynote" like yesterday.

    Bikers are away.
  • atechieinchrist 6/28/2012 6:21:31 PM
    this is like watching a part 2 of a hit movie, cool but no excitement

    Bike flips seem so tame after watching a skydiver play chicken with a skyscraper.

    Cameraman just walked into a vent pipe
  • Golinvox 6/28/2012 6:22:30 PM
    is it just me or does that walk in music sound like Doctor Who?

    Brin is slow-wlaking while telling us that they're in a rush. Something's going on...
  • stephen.shankland 6/28/2012 6:22:44 PM
    Brin is wearing shorts. Didn't see if he's got the Crocs or the Vibram Five Fingers on his feet though.
  • James Martin 6/28/2012 6:23:08 PM
  • stephen.shankland 6/28/2012 6:23:15 PM
    Verdict is in: Crocs.

    Crowd chortles as the cameraman avoids Collision 2.0
  • stephen.shankland 6/28/2012 6:24:31 PM
    I keep thinking that Google executives are very different from Apple and Microsoft executives. Imagine Steve Ballmer or Tim Cook walking around doing improv TV on the roof of Moscone wearing beachwear.
  • stephen.shankland 6/28/2012 6:25:10 PM
    OK, now for the rapelling down the building.
  • James Martin 6/28/2012 6:25:15 PM
  • stephen.shankland 6/28/2012 6:25:47 PM
    I'm sorry, but forward rappelling just looks like it's for people in commando movies.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/28/2012 6:26:03 PM
    Going through the 3rd floor now
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/28/2012 6:27:00 PM
    They never made it into the keynote.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/28/2012 6:27:20 PM
    I suspect they'll be riding around all day, dodging wary Googlers...
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/28/2012 6:27:32 PM
    And th-th-that's all, folks.
  • stephen.shankland 6/28/2012 6:27:36 PM
    Brin is wrapping up. "I'm hoping this is going to lead to something really exciting going forward." I guess maybe there are some things similar to Microsoft execs: boring open-ended non-commital verbiage.
  • Carlos Storms 6/28/2012 6:27:41 PM
    WHat about that glass change, battery life maybe the cause?
  • Kent German 6/28/2012 6:27:58 PM
    And that's it, folks. Thanks for joining us!
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/28/2012 6:28:31 PM
    @Carlos, no word on why the change. They are still experimental, could be battery or signal or who-knows.
