Dateline: 15th May 2013 – Google’s IO seminar.
There has been a mixed reaction to announcements made at Google’s “IO” developer conference yesterday. Those that attended the conference in person were rewarded with a Google Pixel Laptop, gratis. However this was conditional upon being able not to slip into a boredom coma during Larry Page’s whale-song-a-like-ramble-a-thon.
The division line seems to be split between those who have carefully analysed the potential technology improvements against the glitches and early adoption issues that are normal after a change process, and the commentators who seem to enjoying a good moan for the sake of it more than Debbie doing Dallas.
Fabien Scherschel, from the highly respected Linux Outlaws waded into the debate with “Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh! Waaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh!”
Meanwhile, Ricardo Bilton of Venture Beat added the observation that “Ewwwww, it smells of poo and I don’t like it. I WANT A PONY, AND I WANT IT NOW”.
We asked Google to comment, but they were too busy avoiding their fucking tax bills.
