However, the highlight of the event was Williams' improvisation and jokes. He came onstage wearing a Google-colored wire helmet, a possible allusion to his robot role in the movie "Bicentennial Man," and proceeded to riff and free associate in response to technical terms Page presented. He sped up his speech in response to the word "download" and described "firewall" as a "condom for your computer."Other news from the keynote: + Google working with Volkswagen on prototype of Google Earth for automobiles. + The client version of Google Local for mobile phones is now available for 4 models of BlackBerries.
Postscript: After Page's keynote presentation was finished at CES he headed backstage for a press conference with well-known press members and bloggers. Eric Schmidt was also there. Paul Boutin from Engadget was one of those who received an invite and he reports about what Larry and Eric had to say had to say here. Well worth a read.
