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

nissan-nismo-smartwatch01

Nissan Also joins the Smart Watch Game, But  when we compare with Samsung Gear and Nissan Nismo Smartwatch is awesome look. And we can tell that this is better that Samsung Gear with the look. This Device also connected with the owner nissan car and Social Media site, UI side is awesome.  Comes with 3 Colours (Red, White and Black). Still Nissan didn’t mention that with which Mobile OS its supporting,

Here are some of the things the Nismo Watch can do:

  • Connects to the car using a smart phone app as a Bluetooth Smart device
  • Access vehicle telematics and performance data while on the track
  • Capture biometric data via a heart-rate monitor in the watch
  • Monitor the efficiency of your car with average speed and fuel-consumption readings
  • Get tailored car messages from Nissan

Nissan-Nismo-Watch-on-Wrist-gradient

Nissan says that the Nismo Watch can also track and rate the user’s social media performance across Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram using its Social Speed software. Klout for cars? Who knew!

The Nismo Watch is an extension of Nissan’s Nismo Lab, which launched earlier this year. The Nismo Lab is a mobile laboratory that captures live biometric and telematics data from Nismo athletes during races. With the Nismo Watch, Nissan hopes to make this sort of data available to the drivers. With any luck, this sort of technology can also be used in other areas.

Nissan-Nismo-Watch-in-Packaging

In the future, the Nismo Lab wants to focus on ECG, EEG and skin temperature sensors — so that sort of data can get passed back to athletes via the smart watch.
