We’ve made it all the way through the cold and wet months and days of 2012 and earned our way to a brand new Summer which just started officially and will wrap Sept 21st. We all hope for a Summer full of sunshine and sweet fresh-ripened fruit.
Elsewhere, In the world of technology we should be planning to attack the grounds of our great parks and beaches in search of Mother Nature with our cool connected ultrabooks, tablets and super slick smartphones in tow. Don’t forget to charge them up!
I am not alone in stating that Summer is my very favorite season of the year, although I really do enjoy all the other seasons about as much.

Now that Apple, Samsung and Microsoft have revealed a few of their hold cards at conferences focused around them it is time for Google to put on a show supposedly aimed at developers as was WWDC. That has been what Google I/O was usually all about. But just as Apple has pimped WWDC to be an opportunity to launch new things, we can be sure Google will do the same.
This years event (12th in the event line) will be held in San Francisco at Moscone should go a long way in spelling out Google’s proposed direction for the remainder of the year and into 2013.
At Google I/O 2012 we might expect to see:
- A new Google-labled tablet
- New Android features
- A host of new Android smartphones and tablet devices
- Updates and enhancements to Chrome, Google Doc, etc.
- Many innovative Android phone and tablet device and app demos
- Promotion of Google+ for Social Media
This year Google will attempt to make the event as virtual and geographically distributed as they can through what they are terming as “Google I/O Extended”. Events and parties will be held in various cities and the main event with keynotes and sessions will be streamed live.
To register for Google I/O you will need a Google+ account (Surprise! Surprise!)
