Sundar Pichai’s Ascension At Google Could Herald New Platform Unification

by Clip Syndicate

In a sweeping transfer of power, Google CEO Larry Page will bequeath operational leadership of a host of core products to his lieutenant Sundar Pichai. Pichai, a well-known Google executive, will add control of Google+, search, maps, infrastructure and ads to his portfolio, which already includes Chrome’s browser and operating system efforts, Google Apps and Android. When Pichai took over Android from Google’s Andy Rubin, TechCrunch heralded the change as indicative of new integration between Android, and Chrome. Some expect the two to fuse completely. Bringing Android under Pichai wasn’t a subtle signal. To have both Chrome OS and Android ship, separately, on increasingly large screens makes little sense. It isn’t a stretch of the imagination to infer that bringing more product groups under Pichai will allow for increased harmony between the various efforts, and, when possible, coupling where integration would be too minor a goal.

Mobile, Social Media Don't Spell Privacy

It used to be said that don't write/send something you didn't want your grandma to read in the newspaper tomorrow. Now it's more like don't take a picture of yourself you don't want spread across the Web. And don't even think that the cute photo you snapped is safe, secure or is supposed to disappear from sight in a few seconds. There's a reason all of those free social media services you use have "you can't sue us for any reason" clauses buried down in the use agreement you didn't bother reading but said OK to. And speaking of lawsuits why is it lawyers scrounge the iNet/Web when they're working up divorce filings? Yep some idiot decided that he/she just had to tell others about the stuff they were doing.
