Google I/O dissected on Reporters’ Roundtable

We’re recording this Roundtable on the final day of the Google developers’ conference, Google I/O. From my perspective as a jaded and grumpy tech journalist, It has been a pretty cool conference. Google launched its own 7″ Android tablet, a new living room entertainment streaming appliance called the Q, Chrome for Apple’s iOS, a competitor to Evite called Google+ Events… and that’s just the shipping products. We also saw wingsuit divers wearing Google glasses jump out of an airship hovering over Mosone Center and glide to a landing on the convention center roof.

So there’s a lot to talk about, and I’ve got two great guests to run down the important topics that came out of the Google I/O conference:
