All Eyes on Google Keynote at CES Today

Google’s Larry Page (co-founder of Google) will be presenting a Keynote address at CES today at 4PM PST. The rumors have been flying about what will be announced from a new Google PC to a software package called Google Pack. The Google PC rumor was shot down by Google themselves. The Google Pack, if this is true, will include a number of packages like Firefox, Norton AntiVirus, RealPlayer, and a number a Google packages like Google Toolbar and of course: Google Earth. You can read some interesting speculation about the Google Pack at the blog Inside Google.
It’s my hope they will announce Google Earth is out of beta and/or even more forthcoming updates to the Google Earth databases. As soon as I find out what is announced, if it applies to Google Earth, you can read about it here at Google Earth Blog.

    We were able to watch the Microsoft Keynote and it was excelent.
    Via the link on the CES website they talk about the partnership with iPlanet to offer Webcasting.
    Will Google shell out and give the ‘other’ audience what it would like to see also?
