Google announced at day two of I/O that Chrome is finally coming to the iPhone and iPad. If you've been waiting for the browser you'll be glad to know you can download it this afternoon.
BMX bikes! Skydiving! High fives! For everyone who was floored by the movie stunt-style debut of Google Glasses yesterday at day one of I/O, well, pump the brakes. They won't even be consumer-ready until 2014, Sergey Brin told Bloomberg Television.

Day one of Google's developer extravaganza brought us a few things we were expecting like the Nexus 7 and the latest iteration of Android. But it also brought us an orb-shaped media streamer specially made for Google Play, and a high-flying demo of Google Glasses. Here's a rundown of the day's big stories.
If today's Google I/O keynote is any indication, Google's idea of being edgy during its presentation of Google Glass is to have a bunch extreme sports bros roll-in/drop-in on bikes and parachutes.

Google just conjured up its platonic ideal of an Android tablet: killer specs, the most pristine possible software, and a $200 price. Wil this be the Android tablet that finally makes Android tablets exciting? Is Amazon going to lose?
The Nexus Q is Google's $299 cloud service-streaming box—er—orb. It's only for Google Play and YouTube. Plus! It has trippy flashing lights and looks like an alien weapon. But is it any good?
