Last week was Google I/O, the yearly developer-focused show where the tech giant tosses out its latest inventions. It was a show full of sharp ideas and great-looking products. Nothing demoed at this year’s I/O had a definitive release date (or a price) but there were so many concepts—many of them seemingly transformative for Google’s business—that we’re spending an entire show parsing the data dump.
Some notes: Watch the cool/creepy Google Home concept video on YouTube. Read David’s coverage of Android apps on Chrome OS, Cade’s story on Google’s AI machinery, and David’s exclusive story on Ara. Also, read John Gruber’s critique of the Ara story, which the hosts discuss near the end of the episode.
