When the first reports of the M9 overheating came to light, many forum users began a collective joke-round calling the phone a popcorn machine, a grill, and other unoriginal remarks that we’ve seen with every device that presents sign of overheating, from gaming consoles to graphics cards. In this sense, the internet is not very inventive, and the cycle of rehashed jokes re-surfaces on different products every year or so. This time it was the M9’s turn and it was...
[April Fools] Google Announces Second Week of Google I/O 2012
Google I/O registration opened a few days ago, and as you might have heard, was sold out in minutes. Many developers were unable to get a ticket, and this has been widely blamed on resellers (see tickets on eBay) as well as people hunting for the much coveted I/O swag.
The past few years, Google have given away pretty spectacular items at I/O, and many expect this year’s item to be the rumored Nexus Tablet. This alone would be reason enough for many a fanboy to try and swoop up some tickets to be the first to have one, or for the aspiring entrepreneur to resell the tablet afterwards for more than the ticket cost.
Due to all the complaints about the situation, Google has decided to have a second week of I/O, from July 11 through July 13, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. The week immediately following the already scheduled I/O was not possible due to 4th of July festivities.
The second week of Google I/O will feature the same keynotes, technical sessions, code labs, hackathon, developer sandbox, developer hangouts, and after hours activities as the original Google I/O.
Registrations open May 1. Be sure to get a ticket this time around, lest Google be forced to hold a third week of I/O!
