=============================================================== From: Stephen Kraus ------------------------------------------------------ Rubin has done what he could for Android, he is needed in other places.

=============================================================== From: William Wade ------------------------------------------------------ I think in the article this quote is wrong: "But wherever the serial entrepreneur ends up, his boss Page has made one thing very clear: There=E2=80=99s no longer room for separate fiefdoms with= in Google, and the company=E2=80=99s days as a sort of corporate grad school = =E2=80=93 with lots of tinkering, disparate technology paths, and a deep-seated love for goofing off =E2=80=93 are over." I like what Page has done for the most part. I think he has been maybe stopping the tinkering and asking for bigger than tinkering. I think he has moved much the tinkering together into what he likes to call moonshots. There is a place for both tinkering and moonshots, but really they are done by the same people. One has resources, the other doesn't. In a way Google is saying to tinker on a grander scale. After all which would you gather create, Gmail or a self-driving car? A cool app or Glass?

=============================================================== From: Adam Jimerson ------------------------------------------------------ I have to agree with William, that quote is wrong, a lot of things that Google does comes from tinkering and/or moonshots. Look of the number of products Google launched that began as a product of Google's 20% requirement. This is one thing that makes an innovative as they are. As for the future of Android last I heard the current head of the Chrome and Chrome OS team will be taking over for Rubin so this may be the first step to the Android & Chrome merger/integration that has been rumored for some time now. ith as ne ote: e/

=============================================================== From: Mike Robinson ------------------------------------------------------ Moon shots or no, I think that Google has become seriously unfocused. = What does the brand stand for? How do they answer the question, = "'Google' equals
