Buzzfeed on +Sundar Pichai, the Google CEO you HAVE Heard Of

Almost five years ago, I ran into Sundar in the stairwells of Google, having just joined the company. I was holding a MacBook Air, which I'd been given as a Noogler. Knowing he ran ChromeOS, I told him I wished I could be carrying around a Chrome laptop instead. He was apologetic, saying he agreed, and was working on it.

By 2013, when the Pixel was announced, I traded IM's with Sundar just hours after the public launch. I congratulated him on the launch, and his response, to my surprise, was a humble one... "Do you have one yet?" Surprised, I said no, as it was the first day. He responded, "I'm so sorry. You were supposed to be on the list."

I paused, saying, no, it was fine. I'd get one soon. He reiterated, "You were supposed to be on the list. Contact... more »

Trump's Looming $100B+ Distraction and Productivity Crisis

Each year, American businesses are confronted with estimates that upwards of $2 to $4 billion in worker productivity is lost thanks to employee office pools around March Madness, the month-long college basketball championship tournament. Conventional wisdom has it that the tens of millions of players may physically check in to the office, but mentally are somewhere else, working at half speed, sapping dollars from their employer.

That single digit billion dollar gap is trivial compared to what the country has likely already seen after a year-long torture test of a presidential campaign, followed up with the looming tenure led by a person whose unpredictability and lack of respect for historical precedent, combined with a filter-free ability to share his half-formed thoughts with the world has everyone guessing what... more »

Fortune Bear Visits the Google Campus

Ingress Has the World as Its Game Board

There are games. Then there is +Ingress - the best immersive experience I've been participating in for the better part of 500 days. It's simple.

Today, I just passed 5,000 kilometers walked in the game since I started, and it's really accelerated my +Fitbit stats. So you could watch more TV or play World of Warcraft.

Google Demos Why Bringing Android Apps to Chromebook Is So Disruptive
/by +Paul Thurrott  #chromeos   #android  

"A few weeks back, Google announced that it would bring its Android app and Google Play Store ecosystems to Chromebook, dramatically improving the portable PC alternative. Now, the firm has released a video showing how these two platforms will work together. And this is bad news for Windows.

And as I expected, this Peanut Butter Cup pairing of two previously separate platforms—“two great tastes that go together”—is going to be disruptive."

You could keep buying a machine with local storage and apps that you have to install and documents that you could save locally and lose if something goes wrong or your laptop gets stolen... OR you could just use a Chromebook and have all your apps and data on every device you log in to. It's a simpler choice every day.

"The day had started innocently enough. I was hosting our company’s public relations firm at the office, as we worked with our product marketing and management teams on interacting with press. At a break, I stepped outside of the conference room and found the longtime senior vice president of HR waiting for me — usually not a good sign.

“Louis, please come into my office,” he said, with a tone that made it obvious this wasn’t really a choice. So I followed."

Buzzfeed on +Sundar Pichai, the Google CEO you HAVE Heard Of

Almost five years ago, I ran into Sundar in the stairwells of Google, having just joined the company. I was holding a MacBook Air, which I'd been given as a Noogler. Knowing he ran ChromeOS, I told him I wished I could be carrying around a Chrome laptop instead. He was apologetic, saying he agreed, and was working on it.

By 2013, when the Pixel was announced, I traded IM's with Sundar just hours after the public launch. I congratulated him on the launch, and his response, to my surprise, was a humble one... "Do you have one yet?" Surprised, I said no, as it was the first day. He responded, "I'm so sorry. You were supposed to be on the list."

I paused, saying, no, it was fine. I'd get one soon. He reiterated, "You were supposed to be on the list. Contact... more »

Google is incredibly lucky to have Sundar as CEO. I bring up the story because while it's a small one, and I'm just one person, I know Sundar is friendly, approachable, humble and focused - all attributes necessary to earn and succeed the role he's found himself in today. Now, all of you know Sundar already, but this article will help you know him more, and see the person we already knew well.

Thanks +Mathew Honan for the piece.___

We Need Smart and Personal Streams, Not Just the Latest Updates
#twitter   #media   #social

"Once again, the tech web is aflutter about a proposed change in Twitter’s timeline — as they have finally made a choice to offer more than a simply chronological feed of updates displayed in the order they were posted.

While a chronological order of tweets can be considered a hallmark definition of what Twitter is today, and truthfully, one of its most addictive features as each new Tweet rolls in, it’s also a detriment to those who aren’t ready to be constantly hooked to the information IV drip."

If you follow the stock market or news in general, you know that 2016 has opened up rough for those used to consistent gains.

It's never been more fun to watch all of us lose money. Here's how to set yours up.

A byproduct of this selection process is that our communities end up looking a lot like us and behaving like us."
