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.

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. On the Web as in real life, all's fair in love and war! ...Read More »
