There weren’t stunts at Google I/O 2013 resembling the Great Google Glass Launch of 2012, and there wasn’t nearly the same level of hard news as there was in 2012, but nonetheless it was a significant event for both software developers and users. Last year’s show was the stuff of legend, featuring the Glass demonstration in a live-video stunt with parachuters from an airship wearing Google Glass eyewear landing on the Moscone West rooftop and repelling, bicycling and running into the conference to the cheers of thousands inside the conference. Then they walked right up and gave the wearable computers to Google co-founder Sergey Brin—who was already wearing one himself. This year’s show was more subdued but no less important in the overall Google scheme. The conference was loaded with new dev tool updates, upgrades to both the Android and Chrome systems, the introduction of the All Access music subscription service, new location-based application programming interfaces (APIs) and much more.
