    Default Day 2: Win a registration invite for Google I/O!

    OK, folks. It's time to give away some more registration invites for this year's Google I/O developer conference, June 25-26 in San Francisco.

    To be clear, these codes will not get you into Google I/O for free. You'll still have to pony up the $900 general-admission fee, and find your own way to San Francisco. (See this page for complete details on that.) But for many, the financial and geographical hurdles are the easy part actually being able to register was what's hard. So, we're happy to help Google help you.

    For today's contest, just leave a post in this thread telling us your favorite announcement from a previous Google I/O. Maybe it's the Nexus Q. Or Google Glass. Or Google Play Services. Something. Anything. Let's hear it.

    We'll leave this open through noon EDT Friday, then pick five winners at random. (Note that winners from Thursday's entries won't be eligible to win again, and you need only enter once here.)

    Good luck!

    My favorite announcement was Google Play Services. Google is now separating the updates possible which are not dependent on carrier and hardware company updates, bringing its updates and new APIs to the developers in a much faster fashion.

    I remember the Google Glass announcement and the sky dives. That was spectacular. When the bike riders were jumping over the rooftop hurdles, I could literally feel it with the Glass perspective. I think that was one of my favorite I/O announcements.

    Auto Awesome!! I remember being totally amazed when they announced Auto Awesome at last year's I/O keynote.

    It would have to be the Nexus 7 announcement from 2012. Changed the market overnight.

    for me it was oddly enough tablet announcement and having a tablet OS design as I was not nor am I an iOS fan. When they announced that things really got better than just being this phone OS.
    Until proven otherwise the so called "Google Update Alliances" is dead and was just empty promises and words. One has to look no father than the pathetic and slow update process of ICS on all the manufactures and carriers. We should all be asking the question about updates and the so called Update Alliances ever chance we get.

    The first Nexus. Easy. It was the first device that started the whole stock android argument.

    For me, it was the Nexus Q. It was a truly unique piece of hardware. Unfortunately, the feature-set and price were off.
    I wasnt able to attend that Google I/O, but I was able to find one on eBay recently. Flashed with Cyanogenmod, the Q is pretty awesome. (nevermind the built in amplifier) It has become my "Android TV" by taking over full streaming duty.

    (Which, BTW, will be awesome if announced this year)

    I think it was Google I/O 2010, when they introduced the Nexus One. Talk about a device that just plain-old reshaped the industry and sky-rocketed the Android ecosystem.

    I just love to use Google play. I can play my music anywhere, on any device that connects to the internet. I even use it as my main player on my Iphone.

    The nexus 7. I've used it daily for class purposes and comics to keep storage space on my phone. Great battery life. But I do hope the nexus 8 is announced this year. Second favorite for sure would be hangouts.

    Cool Re: Day 2: Win a registration invite for Google I/O!

    One of my favorite announcement was Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Though it was only teased at IO but I believe that changed Android and made it what it is today. On the other hand Google Now was one small update to jelly bean but a giant leap for Android, Android Wear and Glass. BEST and my personal favorite was last years' because that was my first IO and I learned a lot. Android Studio is one of the best things that happened that IO. Starting to give the developers the right tools is all I care about.

    I think the best announcement of I/O 2013 was Android Studio. This was Google giving the developers better tools, (that they needed) to provide users better applications and in turn, a better overall Android experience.

    For me it would have to be the announcement of the Nexus 7 at Google IO 2012. That made me so happy to be an Android user and stick with it from day one. I had always hoped they'd make their own tablet, and when that came out all my dreams came true!

    Oh and.......Pick me Pick me!! lol

    My favorite part of Google I/O is always "What's new in Android developer tools", but in 2013 I loved the developer video they made up. It got everybody in the room super excited to be a dev.

    My favorite announcement wasn't an announcement at all. It was 'The Demo.' The skydivers wearing glass doing a live hangout while the guys on top of moscone center beamed the wifis at them w/ the big handheld sattelite dishes. Then the big handoff to the bmx dudes who did the awesome backflips over the buildings etc to the guys who repelled down the side of the building and then came riding up into the keynote. That demo was just amazing, it could have gone wrong 18 different ways, but went off w/out a hitch, that was freaking impressive.
