CEO Sundar Pichai kicks things off with a two-hour keynote, which you can watch online of course.

Pinkstone says that the engineers, whom he called Tom and Ezra, spent the better part of a recent Saturday unsuccessfully trying to recreate the events that led to the deletion of his music library, which Pinkstone was able to restore from a backup.

Pinkstone detailed a contentious conversation with an Apple customer service rep who told him the software was essentially working as designed, which of course, didn t help him get his music back.

Apple says that the most recent update to iTunes includes improved safeguards against accidental deletion of user-added files, and we re checking our libraries to see if anything comes up missing.

A video from Waverly shows creator Andrew Ochoa talking with a friend across the English/French divide, and the makers say the initial commercial version of the Pilot will translate German and Euro romance languages – Spanish, French, Italian, etc.

The earbuds also play music, of course.
