Hey, Google+, been a while -- how are we all?

Just wanted to confirm that the rumors are true -- I’m excited to be running Google’s Photos and Streams products!  It’s important to me that these changes are properly understood to be positive improvements to both our products and how they reach users.

Gmail is now available in Myanmar (Burmese)

Myanmar speakers can switch languages in their Gmail settings starting today. We couldn’t be happier that Gmail can greet them with a hearty “Mingalaba” (မင်္ဂလာပါ)!

Well, an Alibaba + Meizu union is a surprise start to this week.

Although actually not, when you consider how badly Alibaba wants to be a mobile player... how poorly it has done so far... and how much money it has to burn.

Plus, which players would actually welcome its involvement.
