But even a stretch of presentations that had one attendee asleep
in his chair apparently wasn’t enough runway to allow a mention of
two troubled Google children: Glass and Plus.
Google+, the company’s attempt to unify its various products with
a webbing of identity and social, was barely, barely mentioned at
all during the keynote. Last year it took up a major chunk of the
presentation and the year before it felt like a Google+ plus Glass
keynote (complete with skydivers and biking on the roof of
Moscone) with a smattering of other stuff thrown in.
This year, Glass wasn’t even mentioned, and no presenters wore it
on stage. Even when the discussion turned to wearables — an ideal
time to work in its face computer — Google had nothing to say.
