Steve Gillmor
GIllmor Gang, recording live today 1pm PT participate at http://www.ustream.tv/gillmor...
here - Keith Teare
The big takeaway from I/O: Google has finally evolved as a [mobile] product company http://venturebeat.com/2014... - clive boulton
kinda dissapointed i dont think google really announced any type of formal support or framework for home automation - Chris Hale
Google is in pretty bad shape i would say - Keith Teare
BTW - AT last Chat Center is in the App Store - https://itunes.apple.com/us... - Keith Teare
They punted Apple's allegations back re: fragmentation - Ian Waring
And the third place is actually a car - Ian Waring
Samsung worth more on eBay - Ian Waring
they announced seamless mobile: Android Auto, Android One, Android Chrome, L1 - clive boulton
Common UI between mobiles, tablets and desktop - where have I heard that before ? - Ian Waring
scoble. laughing at your baller comment. Ballin!!! - Chris Hale
Most interesting to me: Polymer, Material and Ray Kurzweil - Alex de Soto
+1 Polymer, Material and Ray Kurzweil - clive boulton
Looking at your watch = rude - Ian Waring
i think a headups display has its place. I am in the midst of talking with google tech support to swap me to the new 2gb version of glass. My glass arrived on friday and they updated it on Tuesday - Chris Hale
I didn't hear them talk about Glass or Plus - Francine Hardaway
did the show link ever appear on TechCrunch? - Tina Chase Gillmor
I didn't see it - Tina Chase Gillmor
Every one in the UK I show it to loves it. - Francine Hardaway
It just came here - Francine Hardaway
Right Keith - Francine Hardaway
Glass half-full: Goog half-way thru a deep corp pivot to mobile. - clive boulton
Scoble - Can i make a request? Can you maybe try and talk about the android auto experience and compare it to the carplay demo from Mercedes you saw. I think you might be the only one in a unique position to comment on thoughts of both platforms - Chris Hale
Chris: cool. - Robert Scoble
if you want share the show link, i think you need to share the ustream link . I don't see the TC one appearing. ustream.tv/gillmorgang - Tina Chase Gillmor
Do you guys think android one is Googles attempt to strong arm the cheap manufacturers away from cheap gingerbread phones - Chris Hale
Microsofts new X2 phone has stuffed X1 users - X1 software won't be updated. MS habit, not learnt - Ian Waring
im so reluctant to buy a car because I think the smartphone connectivity is going to change so much this year. - Tina Chase Gillmor
I am bummed out my 2014 Infiniti q50 runs a intel tablet in the dash that runs gingerbread and its embarrisingly slow - Chris Hale
Me too, Tina. I'm going to keep my current car, which has Ford Sync, which is not optimal, because I don't know if Apple or Google will have the best tech - Francine Hardaway
Silly. Should just sign company email, content with revocable certificate. If you leave, pull the cert, all company data goes invisible, personal content untouched. Who needs Knox? - Ian Waring
Android apps on Chrome? - Ian Waring
I wonder if the car companies know that the mobile integration is perhaps slowing sales at this point? - Tina Chase Gillmor
is it though? I am not sure anyone can quantify that for sure - Chris Hale
I'm sure they do, but they're legendarily slow to adopt - Francine Hardaway
i think they are slow for good reason though. Just like a tv , a car is a much longer term commitment device that requires long term support - Chris Hale
Ford Sync uses Gracenote, Francine. :) - Ann Greenberg
don't know. but when I go to test drive cars the sales people tell me that one of the biggest concerns people have is how the car integrates with their mobile device - Tina Chase Gillmor
Smartphone connectivity in cars surely bluetooth? - clive boulton
And QNX, as does Apple CarPlay - Ian Waring
i had to really think about this topic this week when i really complained to infiniti this week about how horrible the in car experience is on my car - Chris Hale
Ann I thought it was Microsoft - Francine Hardaway
I almost feel like a leasing a car next so I can wait for the catchup. but, they're always behind so... - Tina Chase Gillmor
Is the guy talking name Ben? - Chris Hale
Benedict Evans www.ben-evans.com - Ian Waring
Chris - yes - Benedict Evans - At Andreessen Horowitz - Keith Teare
https://www.gracenote.com/case_st... (voice commands and album art and other - Ann Greenberg
Tina I always lease for that exact reason - Francine Hardaway
There is a Lexus hybrid we like but am baffled that they are not using touchscreen tech. Have a device like a mouse - Tina Chase Gillmor
But for that matter, QNX, Apple & Google use Gracenote, and MS integrated it into XBox, too - Ann Greenberg
is your lease almost up Francine? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Mouse in car srsly bad hci - clive boulton
Benedict Evans is wearing the B&W P7 headphones. - Nir Ben Yona
no. another year. - Francine Hardaway
But I have a Smustang convertible and they'll take it back any time - Francine Hardaway
ah, yeah, Benedict. I want to hear his opinion and Scobles opinion on how important do they think these numbers apple and google throw out about developer payouts really are for the platform . The reason i ask is I really think that measurement doesnt mean that much because monetization strategies for different mobile apps can be completely different - Chris Hale
The house is never finished being built in tech - Ann Greenberg
Amazon are stuck in the middle - Ian Waring
for instance, dropcam. I don't pay for the app but I pay for the dvr monthly service. They make money at this business but it isn't quantified in that big developer payout number each company likes to throw around - Chris Hale
So engrossed in chat stream, forgot to start ustream - clive boulton
LOL me too - Ann Greenberg
LOL / tip for Keith replace FriendFeed on mobile - clive boulton
i think app services is a good term - Chris Hale
Agree with Steve - even WhatsApp have platform specific Dev teams - Ian Waring
Unless something changes, I think Google will do better with cross-platform services than Apple. Kind of miss Kevin Marks' perspective today. ;-) - Alex de Soto
notifications might work well for enterprises - clive boulton
so with notifications being a very important part of the app ecosystema and user experience, what do you guys think of notifications on smart watches? - Chris Hale
I love Apple but which Apple app or service runs on Android? - Alex de Soto
Beats - Ian Waring
Right Ian! I forgot about that one. Any others? - Alex de Soto
Not getting a smart watch till Casio does a G-Shock - clive boulton
So scoble, do you think the watch notification handling system seem adequete in the demos you saw? - Chris Hale
Heard stories that there's a big beacon roll out in progress, but little supporting facts... - Ian Waring
Cross playtform doesn't mean one dev team. It means writing software that a mix of iOS and Android users can equally participate in. Definitely 2 dev teams and native code - Keith Teare
Beacons are not apple specific. Bluetooth smart is just a different bluetooth profile - Chris Hale
Does anyone thing that Apple has an advantage in terms of cross platform development because they make consumer privacy a priority? I think Apple has a very hard time with the cloud because of their culture, but, from the privacy perspective, perhaps an advantage. - Ann Greenberg
Cross platform = common back end. Which rules out CloudKit. Clients are specific - Ian Waring
*think - Ann Greenberg
+1 for Ian's comment - Chris Hale
Apple have done a great job with CloudKit - server secure wise. - Ian Waring
so far I think I'm going to like using the smart watch technology but I'll wait to see what Apple will bring to market - Tina Chase Gillmor
Chris Hale: ANdroid can NOT yet transmit Beacons. Only receive. Apple can do both. - Robert Scoble
But Apple specific - Ian Waring
pain in the neck to keep looking down at a phone or a watch. Better Google Glass would be awesome - Da from Android
yeah, I know we talked about it. I think consuming beacons has more use cases at this point than transmitting - Chris Hale
Ian: All baseball stadiums have beacons. So does a lot of other stores, etc. - Robert Scoble
+1 Chris - Ian Waring
Tina: Hope Apple comes out with a round-faced iWatch. Liking the Moto 360 look. - Alex de Soto
Chris that's only true because most programmers haven't even gotten educated on what Beacons are and what they do. - Robert Scoble
Is Cortana what Siri was supposed to be http://goo.gl/lXLqhT - clive boulton
To Dan's comment, whoever creates the best virtual assistant, it will have to work across both Android and Apple. - Ann Greenberg
so in the idea of beacon transmitting, I think apple did something that really forces everyone to have to use beacons for user tracking - Chris Hale
Apple seem to have Passbook already working with Beacons in iOS 8 - Ian Waring
Google did have a session on "Bluetooth Low Energy." - Alex de Soto
I don't know how many of you paid attention to Apples announcement of IOS 8 having mac address spoofing of the wifi antenna while the phone is probing for networks - Chris Hale
Starbucks payment cards and Virgin Atlantic check in desks for boarding passes - Ian Waring
This makes it impossible to try and track someones movement via wifi - Chris Hale
Cortana is Bing based, could work across both Android and Apple (if MS gives up on phone) - clive boulton
also beacons aren't too prominent on Android, so not a lot of traction - Da from Android
Alex: Bluetooth Low Energy has a TON in it only 1/3rd of which is Beacons. Only an hour? Hmmm. - Robert Scoble
93% - Ian Waring
True Robert. Very limited time spent on it. - Alex de Soto
haha, Benedict echoed my earlier comments - Chris Hale
Good metadata comes for a blend of machine and curation - Ann Greenberg
Redmond's Remarkable Reversal http://www.drdobbs.com/windows... - clive boulton
I'm trying to make a Cardboard Oculus - can't find lenses to buy - Ian Waring
Have the design templates pasted on cardboard ready - Ian Waring
Waze needs better voice command integrations - Ann Greenberg
I have a ticket from a stupid california highway patrolman that shows exactly why you shouldnt use your phone in your car - Chris Hale
Waze empties my battery - Ian Waring
I'd like a slot to prop up my iPhone in the car - Tina Chase Gillmor
Ouch - clive boulton
he was not friendly to me as i am a texan - Chris Hale
Gracenote is in over 50M cars, so yes, of course Steve... - Ann Greenberg
Ian: get a fucking car charger. $19 at an Apple store. Geesh. - Robert Scoble
Mustang console cup holder great for nexus - clive boulton
For a Nexus? - Ian Waring
it would be really nice to hear you guys theorize about a platform agnostic car - Chris Hale
People will hack the infosystems in cars, if car companies don't - Ann Greenberg
Ian FOR ALL CARS! AND FOR ALL CELL PHONES!!! - Robert Scoble
haha Keith just said it - Chris Hale
nexus phone - clive boulton
The USB on my wife's Honda Jazz (Fit) can't keep up - Ian Waring
Yes, it will happen Steve - Ann Greenberg
You know, i bet the manufacturers will build car options that you either choose android or IOS - Chris Hale
and its just a different dash kit vs another - Chris Hale
Why, oh why has Apple only made a deal with Mercedes? - Tina Chase Gillmor
because they are a little too full of themselves - Chris Hale
Mercedes says they are gonna do Google too. Apple is just eight months ahead. - Robert Scoble
Audi announced "Apple this year, Google next" this morning. - Robert Scoble
they probably want to illustrate they are a high end product integrated into another high end product - Chris Hale
Might as well buy a Mercedes. I'm all in with the rest of Apple. - Matt Terenzio
Nope, Chris. It was WHOLLY due to Apple being eight months ahead of Google. - Robert Scoble
I use a car charger with an ATT logo on it bought for $5 on eBay for my vzw moto x. it charges even when playing ingress - Da from Android
There are entire conferences dedicated to in-auto infotainment systems. - Ann Greenberg
yeah - Chris Hale
Ann: not to mention about 1/4th of CES is cars. - Robert Scoble
Apple should connect with at least one American car brand - Tina Chase Gillmor
Wondering how blood sugar levels get measured... - Ian Waring
Steve: the notification freak - Tina Chase Gillmor
Non-invasive for a watch? - Ian Waring
Auto screens are "car grade," whatever that means. More durable, safer? Usually slower displays and chips. Some car companies will accept installation of either Car Play or Google's Android Auto. - Alex de Soto
I love infiniti and not such a big fan of audi. Audi is like google in many ways. They are brave and always ready to try new things. Problem is somethings they are half baked - Chris Hale
Robert, did you get that from Wonder Woman? Will it bounce bullets back at the bad guys? - Frank Paynter
Wearables have made me really tired of half baked tech - Francine Hardaway
i started thinking that smart watches will actually cause a really potentially positive movement in public cell phone etiquette - Chris Hale
Dan, dat is cold - Matt Terenzio
Frank: hah. Google gave them to everyone at IO yesterday. - Robert Scoble
Driveables is the next big category - Ann Greenberg
Notification to Siri / Now / Cortana designers --it's the Car stupid. - clive boulton
No Watch manufacturers announcing yet as per Benedicts podcast around xmas - Ian Waring
Samsung schwag? - Frank Paynter
But that is accepted now..Keith is correct - Tony Stanislawski
how about a new kind of mirror that can also display content? - Tina Chase Gillmor
I now no longer pull out and check my phone on dates - Chris Hale
Scary comment Chris - Ann Greenberg
oh no, my Pebble was just delivered to my office :) hi everyone, just landed from Europe - Charlie Isaacs
Hey keith. I think smart watches will do a few things that will be huge improvements in notifications . - Chris Hale
My Olds 88 mirror displayed temperature :) - clive boulton
Big problem for Google above - Tony Stanislawski
Steve loves to call on Scoble when he knows he's not listening ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
I remember when they used to hand out condoms in the schwag bag at BlogHer. Better than a watch, I think... - Frank Paynter
For example, i see watches as having different vibrating patterns based on notification type - Chris Hale
8 out of 10 will get the iWatch - Alex de Soto
My wife just shelled out £85 for a new Swatch - Ian Waring
and or different led's or light pattern to indicate notification types - Chris Hale
Apple should give away the iWatch. Seriously. - Ann Greenberg
It's a fashion statement! - Ian Waring
Android G-Shock plz - clive boulton
I gave money to https://www.kickstarter.com/project... which is a bracelet that vibrates and glows different colors based on the notification type - Chris Hale
What if health insurance providers give away iWatches if you share your data with them? We do it already with auto insurance companies. - Jeff Grosse
My Nexus 5 color LED does that - Ian Waring
I'll have to look into that one Chris Hale - Tina Chase Gillmor
Can we get a toaster oven if we sign up for Google service? - Frank Paynter
iwatch is not just for display, but voice command is critical - Ann Greenberg
Don't know what blood sugar sensor is non-invasive. - Ian Waring
i think something that can easily catch your eye or attention is very valuable so you can make quick decisions on if you really should pay attention to it or can ignore it - Chris Hale
+1 Ann - clive boulton
Problem with smart watches is that the display is too small to read. At lease for me - Francine Hardaway
well it seems that google is trying to turn the watch into a decision making device - Chris Hale
@Francine What if they introduce Accessibility options on iWatch like they do on iOS? - Jeff Grosse
Do i want to acknowledge this notification or not - Chris Hale
Give them away.... - Ann Greenberg
my guess is that what's Apple will do, Airplay from the iWatch - Charlie Isaacs
That would be better. But how? Jeff - Francine Hardaway
iWatch will work as an accessibility device, for sure. - Ann Greenberg
i think it will possibly have a real positive net benefit of saving battery life on your phone. You dont have to waste time on turning on the phone screen and unlocking device, etc - Chris Hale
I have a Pebble and I can't really see the notifications half the time - Francine Hardaway
Charlie! Are you back? - Tina Chase Gillmor
iOS can be configured to 3 finger tap. It's really an amazing feature for all ages and reasons on iOS. - Jeff Grosse
iWatch will probably maintain context, find a larger screen to display on, etc. - Charlie Isaacs
Tina, that embrace plus is a phenominal idea but at this point they have had a year to make it and i still dont have it yet - Chris Hale
Reason to buy an iWatch: You'll get YO notifications! - Alex de Soto
Chromecast is wonderful - Ian Waring
yes, just landed +Tina, cleared customs, and I didn't even get busted or anything :) - Charlie Isaacs
I think most of you are underestimating what Apple can do with an iwatch if it does it right! - Tony Stanislawski
i think as a proof of concept its important to show that wearables or jewelry could or should be fashionable - Chris Hale
Just what I wanted @alex - Francine Hardaway
Except Chromecast doesn't work on enterprise wifi - clive boulton
Corporate mandated wearables will be equipped with small plastique charges so your hand will blow off if you take personal notificationsduring business hours. - Frank Paynter
haha. Resistance is futile! - Chris Hale
ohmmm - Frank Paynter
Tina: I have a lot of G3 and GG to catch up on, been nonstop - Charlie Isaacs
I hope the iwatch doesnt pull nav info from apple maps - Da from Android
Welcome back, Charlie. Congrats on easy customs. You go, Girl! ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
Looks like you're stalking me again @Charlie - Jeff Grosse
"TV" is being disrupted by people to people creation & consumption. - Ann Greenberg
Chromecast can be tuned in from handset using high freq sound... So just use a Chromecast already deployed - Ian Waring
nobody has talked about aereo ruling - Chris Hale
thanks, yes, in touch with my feminine side Tina - Charlie Isaacs
My comment is directed at Aereo. Which is to say that anyone who wants to use copyrighted content needs to PAY. But that won't stop the disruption by people to people creation and consumpution. - Ann Greenberg
i know scoble you metioned it on facebook - Chris Hale
Charlie - I think only two G3's since you left? We did one yesterday but I haven't released it yet - Tina Chase Gillmor
Would Apple embed an NFC or some other chip on the iWatch to make purchases super easy? Hasn't Google cracked that one? - Alex de Soto
Tina - are yall going to bring Alexia back to GG? - Chris Hale
NFC is a banking industry dream (except in Asia) - Ian Waring
Chris - Yes, she is due up v soon - Tina Chase Gillmor
In a plane watching G3 + GG after downloading to phone #dream - clive boulton
Awesome - She was very sharp and i have developed a little bit of a nerd crush on her - Chris Hale
on the other hand +Benedict, Google might buy Boeing and create a Driverless Planes division equipped with Android tablets for inflight entertainment :) - Charlie Isaacs
We do world sports where other countries get invited - Ian Waring
My comment was directed at Aereo. Which is to say that anyone who wants to use copyrighted content needs to PAY. But that won't stop the disruption by people to people creation and consumption. AND vertical integration of streaming companies paying for original content. Thus my comments last week about Apple's purchase of Beats. - Ann Greenberg
Wow Clive. - Tina Chase Gillmor
Charlie same dream... - clive boulton
Can't find anywhere to download GG for offline consumption - Ian Waring
Has anyone actually tried to store more thank a 100 plus gigs of data on google drive - Chris Hale
not in one folder - clive boulton
Demon copiers! - Ian Waring
(I worked for Cliff) - Ian Waring
yeah, i have google drive and i have a little over 100gb and the drive app really starts to groan under the strain - Chris Hale
Ian - apparently Clive does it - Tina Chase Gillmor
BTW - someone should mention as an aside that google drive now allows you to encrypt the content of your google drive - Chris Hale
the model is the same: ad supported, attention economy. New stars will rise. - Ann Greenberg
I haven't read the details but it actually makes me feel a little better about google possibly not indexing or searching my data i upload - Chris Hale
i guess John Oliver is not going to be hosting the Crunchies again. Too big now, right? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Love to know how anyone downloads GG for offline use - Ian Waring
The issue is end-to-end development and distribution. - Ann Greenberg
wait steve, I think apple used to have a wwdc app - Chris Hale
Steve - that is such old news. The issue isn't virality, its controlling pipelines. Apple will create (fund) music content. Mark my words. - Ann Greenberg
on apple tv - Chris Hale
GG okay from Techcrunch, G3 is the gap - Ian Waring
Camlistore (Googlers) talked about thru why Google drive perf tops out 80-100gb - clive boulton
Dude, there is so much yall havent covered - Chris Hale
Chris: exactly. But I am tired. What should we cover quickly? - Robert Scoble
Will government need to break up the companies that control both means of production and means of display. guys, answer.... please - Ann Greenberg
Ian - tell Techcrunch you'd like to get access to G3 from their blog then ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
Ann: won't happen unless they step on anti trust. - Robert Scoble
do you think that the smart watches you have seen provide enough value that you can see to keep you from habitualy pulling your phone out of your pocket? - Chris Hale
Salesforce (caveat: I work for Salesforce) announced an awesome developer pack for 6 different wearables, all open source. https://developer.salesforce.com/blogs... - Charlie Isaacs
That's the trajectory for Apple, and the definition of anti-trust, Robert... - Ann Greenberg
Germany wants to break up Google - clive boulton
Nobody brought up dropcam acquisition - Chris Hale
Do you think Nest will be the home automation centerpiece for google - Chris Hale
Netflix has proved the model. They are paying for content. If they (like Amazon) tie to devices, than that's precisely controlling the pipeline too tightly. - Ann Greenberg
Chris: people who care already have a Pebble, although lots say it doesn't work well. So that's a hole for Apple to exploit. - Robert Scoble
gotcha - Chris Hale
Pebble has 1,000 apps, too, although most people say most are lame. - Robert Scoble
Or Facebook acquiring Carbon design http://www.geekwire.com/2014... - clive boulton
yeah, i dont foresee watches being a great app platform - Chris Hale
Don't know why, but I think Apple's watch bands will be very cool and "alive." They should also keep it to 1 1/2" diagonal (square or round). - Alex de Soto
thank you for your insight as always Robert - Chris Hale
most people don't wear watches anymore - Da from Android
and Keith T your commentary rocked today as usual. You and i think a lot alike - Chris Hale
Chris Hale - yes I do think that. I think they will make NEST the Google home brand and everything will hang off of it - Tina Chase Gillmor
This model of the regular cast plus the guest VC is great - Rob Underwood
See, Robert - you are proving my point about media integrations to hardware with your GoPro comments - Ann Greenberg
yeah, i am thinking that as well. Nest has a good reputation and wont leave as bitter a taste in everyones mouth as a google automated home would be - Chris Hale
Steve G. I can do IOS apps depending on what you are looking for - Chris Hale
I currently write cross platform native apps for IOS and android for Cisco - Chris Hale
Tina, you and I are friends on FB, if you guys have something you would like to chat about let me know. - Chris Hale
Chris - I will let Steve know that, thanks - Tina Chase Gillmor
Darn forgot to discuss MonkeyParking! - clive boulton
Name this show: Parallel Parking. (Android // Apple, wearables // automobiles // tv ) - clive boulton
