What a Day: Google I/O Sells out in Under an Hour, Andy Rubin Leaves Android, and Google Reader Receives a Pink SlipMarch 13, 2013 | Vincent Messina
Boy, oh boy, what a day. Today’s craziness all started at 7 a.m. PDT, when registration opened for Google I/O 2013. It was the usual Google clusterf****, with multiple issues ranging from error messages to Google Wallet disasters. It took about 55 minutes for the tickets to sell out, leaving those with Google Wallet issues, bank denials, and just plain infinitely spinning circles, furious. I can’t say I don’t blame them, as most of them certainly got hosed.
