You need some Google news, you say?   Google I/O 2013 kicks off in San Francisco this morning, and while there's a live feed for your viewing pleasure (attached in the post here), we're talking all things Google on Android's big day.  While no product announcements are expected based on previous comments by Google execs, there's the possibility of a sneak attack - not to mention that a refreshed Google Maps and Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean?) are also looking likely.

Join me right here, and we'll nerd out about it together!  Coverage starts at 11 AM Central/9 AM Pacific, and will end once the keynote dies down and/or gets too boring.
