We've moved from trance to some sort of rock, sounds vaguely Janes Addiction-esque, but we're drawing a blank. And darn it, I don't have Shazam installed. Where's my Fire Phone?
We're told that there's a power strip coming, which will also ensure great coverage from our crew here on the ground.
We're seated four rows back, so that James can bring you some killer photography. And to help our eyes, too.
People are milling in and taking their seats. We have about 13 minutes until proper go-time.
No actual cars on stage just yet, but there is what auto-makers call a "blank" -- basically a car interior minus the car itself. An infotainment demo of sorts is definitely in the cards.
Yes, we've got a lot of folks here. We roll deep.
We'd love to hear your predictions and expectations for the day, the more wild the better. Hit us up on Twitter. I'm @Tim_Stevens. The full crew is @Jamesco, @richardjnieva, @sethr, @onegarzon, and @rachelking.
The stage is massive, well over 100 feet long. Plenty of room to roll out a car... or three. We're definitely expecting automotive to be a big piece of the story today.
The stage is huge, wide, with some strange contraption on the far right.
The room is mostly lit in purples and blue, with a large white "I/O" up front.
There's some light ambient trance rolling now, which isn't a bad way to get the morning rolling.
A very, very loud car horn just went off. For a long time. That was weird... someone trip the alarm?
And we're in our seats! Greetings.
Good morning! Mark and I are at Moscone, waiting for doors to open. The keynote should kick off in half an hour.
