Interesting, yet creepy... Geofencing tells you when people have entered or exited an area. #io13

JR Raphael ‏@jr_raphael

That doesn't mean you'll get a full new version of Android directly from Google (unless you have a Nexus). But you'll get some things. #io13

Sharon Gaudin ‏@sgaudin

Google releasing 3 new Maps APIs -- faster, more accurate locations; Geofencing & activity recognition. #io13

JR Raphael ‏@jr_raphael

In other words: a way to keep devices more up to date, even when their manufacturers aren't in any rush to roll out full OS updates. #io13

JR Raphael ‏@jr_raphael

Google Play Services: a layer built and managed by Google, functions independently of Android. Updated directly via Google Play. #io13

Google Play just crested 48 Billion app installs. #io13

Here comes Huga Barra. That's a pretty good sign that some big Android news is about to hit us... #io13

Google has 900M Android activations. An "extraordinary ecosystem." #io13

JR Raphael ‏@jr_raphael

900 million Android activations today. Up from 400 million last year. That's a lot of phones. #io13 http://pic.twitter.com/EajovKH13O

Google's Sundar Pincai: Apps are key to making a difference on Android, Chrome. #io13

JR Raphael ‏@jr_raphael

"Very fortunate at Google to have two platforms" -- Android and Chrome. Two platforms. Important phrase. #io13

Google I/O keynote starts in just under an hour. Join me for live play-by-play commentary and streaming video: @sgaudin

Surprising lack of female tech journalists at Google I /O. I think there are only four of us in view. What's up with that? #io13

JR Raphael ‏@jr_raphael

Getting closer... #io13 http://pic.twitter.com/13Mu0Sw8yF

JR Raphael ‏@jr_raphael

The view from inside. #io13 http://pic.twitter.com/vPXRddqPof

No signs of helicopters on the roof so far. Unless they're super awesome invisible ones... #io13 #conspiracytheory http://pic.twitter.com/6ZU763H8Sd
