Last Friday we were excited about the week ahead, this week, as it contained two days circled with very promising events: Nokia’s Lumia 925 event in London and Google’s I/O.

It’s not common to see Larry Page on stage for a Google event, regardless of how big it is.

Check out our hands-on look at Google's new music service.

There’s a lot that we saw that we liked, a lot that to be honest with you, we’re still waiting to see if they reveal as a “one more thing”, and a lot that did surprise us about Google’s new approach to their yearly developer conference. We haven’t seen any Key Lime Pie, we haven’t seen any Android 4.3 either, and it all points to a very stale Google I/O all around. [...]
