Last night OpenAI held their 'Spring Update' event, ostensibly to show off GPT-4o which will be available to free users, but industry watchers strongly suspect was to grab attention before the opening of the Google I/O developer conference which starts today.

If you've not actually tried OpenAI's systems like ChatGPT, you might not know that the company has restricted access to its best tech to paying users until this point, so wider free access is an interesting power play, and one which might be even more interesting when we come to another interesting rumor in a moment.
