Made by Google Event Live Blog (Starts at 11am ET/15:00 UTC)

Continuing my whirlwind trip of New York City, today I’m here at Google’s annual “Made by Google” event. The event has become the company’s traditional venue for launching their in-house hardware, such as the Pixel phone family and various Chromebook offshoots. Doors are set to open here in a bit at 10am ET, with the presentation itself starting at 11am (15:00 UTC). To address the elephant in the room, this year’s event is a little awkward for everyone because so much about the Pixel 3 was leaked in advance – including outright hands-on articles that we published last week. So what we’re expecting to be Google’s biggest announcements have already been spoiled, though that doesn’t mean we’ve seen the whole picture.
