The second day keynote was by Marissa Mayer, VP, Search and User Experience. It's amazing how much testing Google does on how it interacts with users. They'll test the amount of white space between the Google logo and search results. One thing they mentioned I think I knew but forgot is that when you do a search on Google it takes about 0.25 seconds and will have used between 700 and 1,500 computers in several data centers.
The first thing I noticed were bean bag chairs, pool tables, foosball tables, etc. in the lobby outside the meeting rooms. And WiFi everywhere. I don't remember being at a conference with more notebook computers, and no one was having any problem getting on-line. Oh and the keynote speakers were wearing jeans and casual shirts.
I'm off to Google I/O (Google's developers conference) in San Francisco.
So I drove to Denver International Airport, and...
I visited the offices of muvee earlier this year. muvee has one of the most amazing pieces of software I have ever used--it does automatic video editing. It does it very intelligently. It produces great results.

Even if you don't think you need/want PC-Mover, I suggest you download it and install it on your PC. It will be there, waiting, for that day when you decide to upgrade to a new computer and need help moving your settings and applications to it.
