  1. Google has invited members of the press to San Francisco to showcase what’s expected to be a wealth of new products. On the docket – or at least, what is rumored to be on the docket – include two Pixel handsets, Google Home (the search giant’s answer to Amazon’s Echo) and a 4K-capable Chromecast.

    It’s also possible that we’ll see Google announce a new Wi-Fi router and perhaps even a new operating system called Andromeda that’s said to combine elements of Android and Chrome.

    The event kicks off at 9:00 a.m. Pacific / noon for those on the East Coast.

    The VR equipment is going to be a FAILURE until the market develops a WIRELESS HD STANDARD.

    Bluetooth succeeded because it's based on a wireless audio standard any company can develop for.

    No one wants a device that not only obscures their vision, but has to be tethered.

    I doubt we'll see a WIRELESS HD STANDARD anytime soon. Bluetooth can't even provide a HD audio signal so I don't see it happening with video.

    Plenty of people don't care about being tethered as it provides the best connection available for the data throughput.

    That's my plan. I think I'll do just that right now (y)
