Google I/O Registration Begins March 27th, Offers Input/Output To Keep You Busy Until Then

Well, it’s certainly that time of year again.  Google has officially announced its registration date for Google I/O, March 27th at 7am sharp (PDT).  This year around it’s going to run you a whopping $900 bucks for admission and $300 bucks if you’re a student, that’s up from last year’s $100.  Recall last year the event sold out in a matter of minutes so be prepared to promptly purchase your ticket this year.  The event will be held from June 27th-29th at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.  In the meantime, Google is offering you a chance to make it to I/O free of charge.  That’s if you’re a dev or a coder.

Google has yet again conjured up something so slick, only they could come up with stuff like this.  Build a machine using their new Input/Output metrics and catch their attention to receive a trip to Google I/O on Google’s dime.  In addition, while you’re having fun with this cool web-based machine builder, if Google likes it, they’ll be showing it off at I/O for you in front of the masses.  So, if you want to have some fun by trying to get a ball from one side of the screen to the opposite using all kinds of cool gizmos and contraptions, then head on over via the source link to get started.  Feel free to let us know what you think in the comments below. However, user beware, it’s ridiculously addicting.

About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.
