Technology – Google restructuring

Posted in Android, Blogging, Business, Economy, Technology with tags , , on 2015/08/11 by rmolby

I just saw an article on tom’s HARDWARE stating that a new umbrella company, Alphabet, will “own” Google, and that all the smaller projects they have running under the Google umbrella will become independent subsidiaries under the new Alphabet group.

According to Larry Page, this is to enable Google to re-focus on it’s core mission, and spin off any successful projects as separate business units with their own budgets and CEOs.

I personally think this is a good idea. Google is a behemoth that must be difficult to manage, and probably impossible to audit. Too many small projects cluttering up the business. By breaking things up each business unit should be able to run meaner, and maybe leaner once it is running profitably.

Ramblings for 2012.11.26

Well, just a quick blurb about Cyber Monday.

I had been thinking these last few weeks about replacing my iPhone 3GS with a Samsung Galaxy S2 for $0.99 today on Cyber Monday, but by the time I was able to get logged into AT&T or Amazon, they were all gone.

I also visited the store I usually take my phone issues to and they didn’t have any decent deals.

This just proved to me that these so-called “deals or sales” are not really all that good a deal. I did find out that AT&T currently offers a deal where you get $100 off one phone if you get two Samsung Galaxy series phones at the same time, so I will try to talk my son into a Galaxy S3 instead of a iPhone 5.

We shall see how well that goes over, LOL.
