Google So yeah, Google totally just won the conference showdown by easily beating both Apple and Microsoft. Not only did Google announce Android 4.1 with some really cool new features, a cheap but non-crippled tablet, and a new Android device called the Nexus Q, but they also opened up pre-orders for Google Glass. So yeah.

The one thing remarkable about that tablet is the price. It's Google coercing Asus into a race to the bottom on its way into relevance in the tablet market.

I'm not sure how sustainable this will be in the long run for device makers. However, having pulled the trigger on a 16GB version, I'm not complaining right now.

On another note, I was pleasantly surprised to see Google doing something to improve UI responsiveness (Project Butter). Last December I got a general head-in-the-sand vibe from the "Android graphics true facts" fracas on Google+. I wonder what the Android apologists have to say about that now.

I'm looking forward to playing with Jelly Bean.
