Google not sure 'weather' Monday's event will go on as scheduled

Google not sure 'weather' Monday's event will go on as scheduled
No matter how big of a company you are, an Act of God can derail your plans. With Google scheduled to have a major media event in New York City on Monday, who could have predicted that Hurricane Sandy, described in the inimitable New York Post as a "nor'easter on Steroids," could force a delay of the introduction of some major devices. Last year, Google delayed its major Android announcements by one week most likely in respect to the passing of Steve Jobs.

The devices expected to be introduced include the LG Nexus 4, the 32GB 3G Google Nexus 7, the beastly Google Nexus 10 and it is also believed that Android 4.2 will be unveiled at the event. But if there is no electricity, or conditions turn dangerous for attendees, what else can Google do but delay the announcements?

New Jersey is already under a State of Emergency and the experts believe the storm could produce more damage than the $15 billion caused by Hurricane Irene, which slammed into the east coast last year. Keep your eyes here and we will alert you once we hear anything from Google about how they are going to deal with "Frankenstorm".

UPDATE: Google has officially canceled the event. There is no word yet on when it will take place, but as soon as we know, you will know!

Just waiting for the comments on how Google picked an "inferior" location that's prone to hurricanes. /sarcasm
