Google plus and Vic Gundotra

image

Couple of days before we seen lots of masgs and blog posts about Vic (father of google +) signing off from google. Viv mention about leaving  g+ profile. Most of top blogger mentions(it can be rumours) vic moves to fb whats app division, google normally transfer the teams internally so vic not intrested about it and moving google. Vic is the person who brought up google plus from nothing to top five social media site. And then at once he leaving google means there can be some issues between inside teams. You can check the Vic’s google + post about leaving google.

And Then

Last month, my wife’s uncle died in a tragic accident in LA when the bicycle he was using to get lunch was hit by a truck. At the memorial service his daughter relayed a very touching story. 

She said her dad (who was her best friend) called every day to talk. But instead of opening the call with the customary “How are you” or “What’s going on”, her dad always opened the conversation with “And then?” Her father viewed each conversation as a continuation of the last, and what pained her the most was that there were to be no more “and thens”. I cried. 

Since then I’ve thought a lot about how similar this is to our life’s endeavors. We pour our heart and soul into our work and it becomes something we love and cherish. But even the challenges we work on today will one day become “and thens” as we move on to the next. 

Today I’m announcing my departure from Google after almost 8 years.

I have been incredibly fortunate to work with the amazing people of Google. I don’t believe there is a more talented and passionate collection of people anywhere else. And I’m overwhelmed when I think about the leadership of +Larry Page and what he empowered me to do while at Google. From starting Google I/O, to being responsible for all mobile applications, to creating Google+, none of this would have happened without Larry’s encouragement and support.

I’m also forever in debt to the Google+ team. This is a group of people who built social at Google against the skepticism of so many. The growth of active users is staggering, and speaks to the work of this team. But it doesn’t tell you what kind of people they are. They are invincible dreamers. I love them. And I will miss them dearly.

Finally, thank you to all those who I’ve met on Google+. The community here has been so supportive that I don’t even know how to say thank you. You all make Google+. Without you, this social network wouldn’t exist. Your support for Google+, and for me personally is something I will never forget. 

But, now is the time for a new journey. A continuation. An “and then”. I am excited about what’s next. But this isn’t the day to talk about that. This is a day to celebrate the past 8 years. To cry. And smile. And to look forward to the journey yet to come.

And then….
+Vic Gundotra

Facebook is broken, can’t access via web and mobile but for me. Mobile is ok. But most of the popular tech geeks mentioned in Twitter that facebook is broken can’t like a pic and post bday wishes. Now days st if them sending their bday wishes via fb only. So that’s makes bad idea andiut fb. So now in this gap Google can hit bit better users. Recently Google makes good fast updates as well. In future if fb facing this sort of issues that’s the key point to Google plus to hit the users. Even ios user facing these kind of issues. In normal pc’s can’t login even.

Huffpost blog team teach the fb for the update still no replies from fb.

Federal Aviation Administration,
(faa) mentioned that there is no harm when passengers connected via WiFi. So in future we all gonna connected via WiFi will flying in the plane. But still there is a restriction for calling via mobile and mobile data packages. So we can expect these changes in future. For now connecting via WiFi while flying is big thing.

The FAA will still have final say over what is and isn’t acceptable regarding gadget use, but the consensus seems to be that mobile devices during all phases of flight pose no imminent threat. If everything goes through, the rules could change as early as next year.

Efficient use of data, making internet access affordable, and helping businesses create new business models and services which will drive internet access.

With the internet we feel the World like a small Village connected everywhere, but most of the developing countries still don’t have proper internet connectivity. So this Organization’s trying to bring the internet connectivity the each and every one to connect to the internet and developing the connectivity facilities. Some potential projects of Internet.org include development of lower-cost, higher-quality Smartphones that could help deploy internet access in underserved areas, data compression tools and data caching systems as well as localization of mobile devices.

Yahoo started to boost on their second quarter

marissa-mayer-headshot

Leading tech blog Mashable says that yahoo reached the margin on in their second quarter. No one thought  thought Marissa Mayer can do this change, recently yahoo starts to take over the most of the top running companies like thumblr. Yahoo reported earnings of $0.35 share on revenue of $1.07 billion after ad commissions, a revenue decline of 7% over last year. Analysts were expecting earnings of $0.30 a share on revenue of $1.08 billion. As expected, Yahoo reported a 11% decline in display advertising revenue compared to the same period last year. Yahoo sold about the same number of ads, but its price per ad fell 12%. Total display revenue amounted to $423 million. Search revenue increased 5% to $418 million. Paid clicks were up 21%, but its price-per-click declined 8%.

Now Yahoo starts to do better now so up coming day we can see some good competition (Yahoo vs Google) in the tech market. In particular, Mayer highlighted the fact that Yahoo now has 340 million active mobile users and has grown its mobile team by a factor of six in the past 12 months, going from “dozens” to “hundreds,” thanks in part to Yahoo’s acquisition of 16 companies.

Now Google, Facebook Going to some more hard to move the game fwd.  For now Yahoo doing better but Google running first in the race, we want to wait and see for some time yahoo can do better than Google or fb going to take over these to companies.
