During a roundtable event at Mobile World Congress today, Mr. Rubin effectively nixed the idea that Google would be turning the Google Play Store into a physical thing.

    That seems like a pretty definitive response. One could argue that plausible deniability after the fact is definitely a strategy employed over the years when something gets leaked. Regardless, it doesn't change our enthusiasm for any of the amazing products Google will be showing off in May. How about you guys?
