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

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.

Hugo Barra Mentioned in Google+, “After nearly 5½ years at Google and almost 3 years as a member of the Android team — the most amazing group of people I’ve ever worked with in my life — I have decided to start a new career chapter.”

Now Who going to take the lead for Android.

AllThingsD is reporting that Barra is actually leaving because of a romantic situation gone sour within the Google walls. He reportedly was dating a fellow Googler who now is dating Google co-founder Sergey Brin. Brin and his wife recently confirmed that they are living apart. The move to Xiaomi, if true, gives a big advantage to the growing Chinese smartphone company. The company was founded in 2010, sold its first smartphone the next year, and has continued to do well in the market, selling 7.19 million phones last year.
