Does anyone else find it extremely annoying that all of the voice recognition requires transmitting the data? My old Windows phone didn't need that... OK, it didn't work that well but that was over 4 years ago...

It seems that the "incremental thinking" that should be avoided most carefully is that which adds no value, but only attaches worthless features to some product. We have way more of that kind of thinking than any world would ever need. And not only had Google struggled with microsoft, but the majority of independant thinking people struggle with it every day, it seems. Mostly because of added features that do not add any value to their products. Is there a trend visible here?

Page expressed disappointment with those who focus on negative platform wars instead of just creating something new and positive in a zero sum game where there is an abundance of opportunity. Indeed Google pioneers a lot of good stuff...but I have to note Google is working very, very hard to make Google+ a better social platform than Facebook which is already great and has the eyeballs. It has done the same with Chrome (Firefox is fine), Android (iOS) and etc.

Incremental improvement is necessary. Invention of airplane does not necessary mean cars are replaced by airplanes. We need cars, and cars must be incrementally improved - more efficient, more safety. However, opposite is also true - we need car does not mean we did't need airplane invented. And airplane will never be invented if there were no one challenged common sense, "it is crazy idea people can fly".

Incremental thinking in everyday activities is natural; yet if one does not step away from the everyday thinking and starts thinking "out of the box", in electrical terms, on a system and/or architectural level, the incremental work just gets buried in the "just get the job done" syndrome. In today's fast-paced work environment sometimes the forest is neglected when looking at individual trees, to twist a metaphor on its head. Of course one needs to work for a company like Google to be able to think about the next big thing, like driverless cars or computer glasses. Not many of us are as fortunate. Page's comments addressed the Google developers community and are right on.

I was hoping for an updated Nexus 7 at Google IO. Disappointed. BTW I found Page's comment interesting. “I encourage you to avoid incremental thinking and have a really deep understanding of what you are doing.” Almost everything that I(& most people I know) do is incremental stuff. While it is true that incremental inventions may not result in sexy new products overnight, most of what we see today came through incremental changes over a long period of time. May be its applicable when you conceive a new idea.. like an all electric car.. or reusable rocket.. but even in that after a while every other change is incremental.. Any thoughts?

Price will be the key for smartphone to penetrate developing world. If the flexibility and capability of developing application from it are improved, I am sure a lot of people will be happy that include ARM.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
