re: Google Does the Executive Shuffle


Lots of talk around search and ad money, which - it's easy to forget is Google's main goal with Android. Search on Android was up 10-fold last year over the year prior.

re: Google Does the Executive Shuffle


Google's product SVP Jonathan Rosenberg says the key to unlocking mCommerce is to make it easier for people to search and consummate their transactions on mobile. He sees 2011 as the year it happens.


They didn't comment much on NFC, but said that when people complete transactions on devices, they become more trackable and significantly more valuable. Obviously, Google wants to see this happen.

I think that they really did work together on a lot of decisions or, probably more often, Page and Brin were calling most of the shots. More clear roles would simplify things and maybe speed up decisions. If Schmidt weren't still in an executive role, it'd be much more suspect.


Or maybe they were sick of Schmidt saying things like he thinks people should be able to change their names when they reach adulthood to hide the bad things they used to do.

So, what's the consensus on the real reason for the change? There must be something Schmidt wasn't doing that needed doing -- maybe there was a sense that the business was losing its focus on search?  What's your guess?
