Larry Page is Replacing Eric Schmidt as CEO of Google, is Ballmer next to be Replaced?

No comments:






Google has announced that Larry Page will replace Eric Schmidt and take charge of our day-to-day operations as Google’s Chief Executive Officer. You can read Schmidt's public announcement letter below...

When I joined Google in 2001 I never imagined—even in my wildest dreams—that we would get as far, as fast as we have today. Search has quite literally changed people’s lives—increasing the collective sum of the world’s knowledge and revolutionizing advertising in the process. And our emerging businesses—display, Android, YouTube and Chrome—are on fire. Of course, like any successful organization we’ve had our fair share of good luck, but the entire team—now over 24,000 Googlers globally—deserves most of the credit.

And as our results today show, the outlook is bright. But as Google has grown, managing the business has become more complicated. So Larry, Sergey and I have been talking for a long time about how best to simplify our management structure and speed up decision making—and over the holidays we decided now was the right moment to make some changes to the way we are structured.

For the last 10 years, we have all been equally involved in making decisions. This triumvirate approach has real benefits in terms of shared wisdom, and we will continue to discuss the big decisions among the three of us. But we have also agreed to clarify our individual roles so there’s clear responsibility and accountability at the top of the company.

Larry will now lead product development and technology strategy, his greatest strengths, and starting from April 4 he will take charge of our day-to-day operations as Google’s Chief Executive Officer. In this new role I know he will merge Google’s technology and business vision brilliantly. I am enormously proud of my last decade as CEO, and I am certain that the next 10 years under Larry will be even better! Larry, in my clear opinion, is ready to lead.

Sergey has decided to devote his time and energy to strategic projects, in particular working on new products. His title will be Co-Founder. He’s an innovator and entrepreneur to the core, and this role suits him perfectly.

As Executive Chairman, I will focus wherever I can add the greatest value: externally, on the deals, partnerships, customers and broader business relationships, government outreach and technology thought leadership that are increasingly important given Google’s global reach; and internally as an advisor to Larry and Sergey.

We are confident that this focus will serve Google and our users well in the future. Larry, Sergey and I have worked exceptionally closely together for over a decade—and we anticipate working together for a long time to come. As friends, co-workers and computer scientists we have a lot in common, most important of all a profound belief in the potential for technology to make the world a better place. We love Google—our people, our products and most of all the opportunity we have to improve the lives of millions of people around the world.

The real reasons behind the leadership shakeup are not yet known. We'll update you with more information as it becomes available.

EFF Speaks Out Against Sony's Frightening Case Against Geohot

No comments:



The Electronic Frontier Foundation has spoken out about Sony's 'outrageous' and 'frightening' case against Geohot.

In a lengthy post on its blog, the EFF explains dangerous implications if Sony were to succeed in its case.

That means Sony is sending another dangerous message: that it has rights in the computer it sells you even after you buy it, and therefore can decide whether your tinkering with that computer is legal or not. We disagree. Once you buy a computer, it's yours. It shouldn't be a crime for you to access your own computer, regardless of whether Sony or any other company likes what you're doing.
....
Sony's core arguments — that it can silence speech that reveals security flaws using the DMCA and that the mere fact of a terms of use somewhere gives a company permanent and total control over what you do with a device under pain of criminal punishment — are both sweeping and frightening, and not just for gamers and computer researchers. Frankly, it's not what we expect from any company that cares about its customers, and we bet it's not what those customers expect, either.

New iPad Multitasking Gestures Working on the iPhone

No comments:



Antoni Nygaard has managed to get the new iPad multitasking gestures and lock/mute switch working on his iPhone.

Take a look at the video below for a demonstration. The four finger swipe is quite awkward on the iPhone; however, BGR says Apple is internally testing this feature.

One of our Apple sources has just sent us over a couple screen shots from what we’re told is an internal test model of the iPhone 4. The shots are interesting because it looks like Apple is testing multitouch gestures on the iPhone in addition to the iPad.

DigiTimes Reiterates 2048x1536 for iPad 2

No comments:



DigiTimes is reiterating reports that the iPad 2 will have a 2048x1536 high resolution display.

As Apple is set to start mass producing its next-generation iPad 2 at the end of February, and sources from upstream component makers pointed out that Apple is increasing iPad 2's resolution to 2048 by 1536 and the new strategy is expected to widen the company's technology gap with its competitors.

The double resolution Retina Display for the next iPad has been a highly debated topic. John Gruber from Daring Fireball says the iPad 2 will not get a resolution bump. Engadget sources say it will be "super high resolution". Evidence suggests it will get a resolution bump but its unclear which generation will see that bump.

DigiTimes predicts Apple will sell over 40 million iPad units in 2011.

Apple to Announce the iPad 2 on February 9th?

No comments:



A new image found in the iOS 4.3 beta 2 firmware not only reveals that the iPad 2 will get a camera, FaceTime, and PhotoBooth but also when it may be announced.

Notice the image to the left below has a 27 on the Calendar app icon. That's because Apple announced the device on January 27th. Now look at the image on the right. That's the new image found in iOS 4.3 beta 2. Notice how it has a 9 instead of a 27 on the Calendar app icon.

This suggests that Apple will announce the iPad on February 9th. It is possible that this could be the 9th of a more distant month; however, Apple likes to release its products in a pretty consistent yearly cycle.
