more from the Googleplex

Following yesterday's YouTube announcement, Google should have even more big news today - the Google I/O developer conference kicks off today at noon, with the license-free launch of the company's own music locker service, and plenty of bit Android and ChromeOS developments likely to be on the agenda. Follow along live at Google, or crash one of the 122 developer viewing parties happening worldwide.

Of particular interest to S+V readers (and editors) aside from the new Google Music service: Movie rentals through the Android Market, Android 3.1, the imminent arrival of Ice Cream Sandwich...and more to come. Tune in!
