You must have had the volume down while you were watching the presentation. They whole lot of toys is a giant experiment in Machine Learning.I don't know why Google has to get into the hardware business, especially a nobody cell phone or camera.

Machine Learning was one of the most oft-used buzz phrases in the presentation. Pretty much every product's use of and contribution to ML was highlighted.I heard the second part, but missed that their entry into these phones and cameras is to make the customer a lab rat for AI development.
I don't know why Google has to get into the hardware business, especially a nobody cell phone or camera. Neither of these devices lends itself to it's key expertise- search and advertising. They have a clear winner with Android on a Samsung phone and should just continue to work with the hardware companies to improve the OS. If Google wanted to expand that, they could develop a competing OS to run on ipads, Macs, and iphones. But for it to get legs it would have to be much better than iOS and for the business figure out a way to monetize it. They would be competing with FREE which isn't an easy thing to do especially with Apple.
I use Google software like Chrome, and Calendar, and You Tube on my iphone and that works well. Maybe they could just improve upon that with the Pixel budget. But the hardware is a waste of time, IMO.
I did watch the full video, I mean, I watched segments because I kept falling asleep through half the presentations.
Sorry to be a Donnie Downer on this but it's the way I see it as a Google fan boy.
Let us know what you think, especially as a Pixel owner. Plus, I'm curious if you'll find the Pixel 2's improved camera good enough to pick it over your Sony for more than casual use.Should have the Pixel 2 XL on the 19th or 20th, and the Pixel 2 the 24th or 25th.
