I/O: Nothing of interest to the general public

Well, this was a bust.

Unless you're a computer journalist or software developer, this was a giant waste of time.

Seeing as I am neither, I was hoping for them to talk about their several projects, like the self driving car, the internet balloons, the advancements in AI, basically anything that makes google shape the future.

Instead I got footage of slightly shinier UIs and slightly more functional software for two freaking hours, like you see on the Apple keynotes.

Bottom line: for 99,998% of the population a complete waste of time and boring as hell.

Major fucking letdown.
