My fabulous wife sprung for the VIP tickets which got us great parking, access to the VIP lounge, and really awesome seats - fourth row center.
They frown on photography inside the main tent so here's a photo of the VIP lounge instead. Not too big but lovely appetizers and free beer and wine. Expensive, but a fun way to go.
Bonus that it's a really beautiful day up in the northern Bay Area today. Ahhhhhhhh, California living. :-)
I remember when the Nexus 5 first launched, there were a lot of people who were interested in seeing that phone's homescreen experience on other phones and tablets. The new launcher is now available, expanding the experience to the Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 10, and Google Play Edition devices.
See the original announcement below. I'm excited to hear your feedback if you get a chance to try it!
Google Now Launcher gives you quick access to Google Now, while keeping your apps right where you want them. Just tap home and then swipe right to access Google Now cards that show you just the right information, at just the right time. And anytime you see the search box at the top of your screen, you can say “Ok Google” (if you’re in the US, UK, or Canada), or you can tap the microphone button to trigger voice input. From there, you can ask a question, or tell your phone what to do, like send a message, get directions, or play a song. If you'd rather type your query, tap the Google search box, which now loads faster than ever.
Google Now Launcher also gives you a beautiful, immersive, and simple experience. The full-screen, larger viewing area lets your wallpaper pop from every pixel. And of course you can place your favorite apps anywhere you like.
If you’ve got a Nexus or Google Play edition device with Android 4.4 KitKat, try Google Now Launcher today by getting it from the Google Play Store here:

I'm a geek, but hopefully one with obsessions beyond traditional geek bounds. My niche interests include gaming (computer/console as well as tabletop RPGs), dancing (social ballroom and Irish ceili), comic books (American-style and some manga), movies (domestic or foreign, Hollywood or indie), animation ("traditional" and anime), skiing (snow, not water), martial arts, science fiction & fantasy, progressive rock, period events, yadda yadda.
The views expressed on Google+, in my blog, via Twitter, on Facebook, and elsewhere (except via official Google channels) are mine alone and not those of my employer.
