Is it unusual to have a big chrome Android figure poking out of a building? Well, if you are lucky enough to be at the GooglePlex— then no… it’s not unusual. Paul Wilcox was casually walking around the Google headquarters and noticed the giant figure sticking out of one of the more prominent areas of the campus. Of course this could be some sort of indication that something major may be coming in regards to Chrome for Android or it could just be Google having some fun as usual. We’re going to go ahead and put our bets on the latter for now.

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak recently stopped by the GooglePlex. Yes you read that right, the GooglePlex… go figure. Perhaps he was making a friendly visit meeting the fine folks at Google and wanted to see the fine Android staff in action. Well, the folks at Google not only welcomed Wozniak with open arms, but they gave him a a heck of a parting gift. How about a brand new Galaxy Nexus phone and Ice Cream Sandwich t-shirt as a parting gift? Wozniak is generally held in high regards by the Android community, so it shouldn’t be too unusual to see him making rounds at Google and getting some love. Next time I’m at the GooglePlex, I do expect to get my Ice Cream Sandwich shirt since Wozniak got one.
As we mentioned a few days ago, our inbox was graced with an invite from Google to attend their headquarters in Mountain View for an “in depth” look at Honeycomb. And though we’ve seen a bit of the new OS at CES, we’re looking forward to grabbing a bigger tidbit from the event. Well, that day is here and we’re all underway. If you’re not able to attend the event in person, Google will be streaming the event live at 1pm eastern on the search giant’s YouTube page. There’s also a big chance that we’ll hear more on the new online Android Market and music services. Enjoy!
