Google CEO Sundar Pichai will appear at the White House on Thursday alongside other Silicon Valley leaders as a cloud of suspicion hangs over his company in the wake of several reports in recent months of bias against conservatives and specifically supporters of President Donald Trump. According to the Associated Press, Pichai will join top executives from other tech giants like Microsoft, Oracle, IBM, and Qualcomm.“The White House says the Thursday meeting will address efforts to advance American leadership in innovation and how that will affect jobs, industries and the economy,” the AP reported. “Google CEO Sundar Pichai, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, IBM CEO Ginni Rometty, Oracle co-CEO Safra Catz and Qualcomm CEO Steven Mollenkopf are among the expected attendees.” At this stage, it is unclear if President Trump himself will join the meeting–or if the tech executives will meet with others on his behalf. It also remains unclear if the White House, or … [Read more...] about White House to Host Google CEO Amid Cloud of Concerns over Company’s Silencing of Conservatives

What I mean is that profitability is often the simplest explanation for a decision that might seem to make little or no sense to someone on the outside of a company looking in. How does this rule apply to Google’s messaging mess? Much ink, and possibly much blood, has been spilt over Google’s recent messaging app strategy (or lack thereof). To some, it is a mangled and unfocused mess of half-baked concepts sent out into the world for us to shill to our increasingly impatient friends and family. To others, it is part of Google’s master plan to move the world forward in a big way that most are too naive to see. In my humble opinion, the explanation may be much simpler: To … [Read more...] about Google’s messaging mess is about money, not making your life easier (opinion)
Google has begun sending out invitations for an event on July 24 in San Francisco. The event will be hosted by senior vice president for Android and Chrome at Google, Sundar Pichai. Unfortunately, the invites don't say what topics will be on the schedule for the event, but obviously that won't stop anyone from speculating. And, if we had to put money down, we expect the announcement is about the next-gen Nexus 7. There have been consistent rumors that the Nexus 7 refresh would be released at the end of July, and we just saw a new leak pertaining to the pricing of the tablet; so, it's a fairly good bet that the Nexus 7 will highlight the announcement. There are other possibilities for the event. It could include the official announcement of the next version of Android, although we would expect an announcement of the incremental update of Android 4.3, rather than the full Android 5.0, which is more likely to be announced with the Nexus 5 and next-gen Nexus 10 in the fall. Some … [Read more...] about Android/Chrome head Sundar Pichai to host Google event July 24th: Nexus 7 announcement?
