Google’s Alphabet Street
So, Google Alphabet
Alphabet = [Google] + [Calico, Nest, Fiber, G Ventures, G Capital, Google X]
Google = Google Search, Ads, Maps, YouTube, Android are still under the Google umbrella in Alphabet. The rest is shit Sundar Pichai doesn’t want.
Alphabet saves face as the founders and Eric are now not running their creation.
Sundar Pichai can gut the company more too and it wasn’t them. Nobody ever got the axe under the rule of the three amigos – Larry, Sergei, Eric. Actually, a few were left go during the crunch but not massive numbers.
Maybe now, silly projects like Google Glass don’t need to be crowbarred into being an integral part of Google and can be left to be fun toys for the billionaire’s boys club
