I think my favorite piece of information came from the Engadget crew live blogging Eric Schmidt’s keynote address:
- 12:27PM Q: “Can you share your visions on people’s financial side?” Money management, folks.
- A: “We’re not into banking as a bank.” Google money! “Management.” Oh. “Larry and Sergey have suggested Google bucks but I’ve told them there’s some legal issues.” We think that was a joke. “But seriously, now…” he’s talking about NFC being used as a secure ID for transactions. Europe is working to standardize it. “You’re walking down the street, confused (as I usually am). Your phone remembers you need new pants—” wait, WHAT?!
