Excited by the progress the Loon team has made in just one year.  Amazing what you can do when you start from first principles and real world physics. In their most recent test flight, the team helped connect a school in rural Brazil for the very first time. I hope that we can help make internet access available in an affordable way to everyone on the planet. I'm also inspired to wear some fuzzy socks based on the article :)

Cordial felicitations, Larry.

Please enable a click function on google maps street_view so I can mark two points to travel between with controllable scroll speed settings, 'n that.  Ideally, you will make me a video headset so I can have a more immerse experience.  I liken my street_view journeys to being on a relaxing holiday happily roaming the world.  Very therapeutic.

Right, kettle boiled so I'll leave you to contact me once you've done this. 

I embrace you with effusion, Earl.

A next step for the self-driving car team...this video says it all.
 
Fully autonomous driving has always been the goal of our project, because we think this could improve road safety and help lots of people who can't drive. 

We're now developing prototypes of vehicles that have been designed from the ground up to drive themselves—just push a button and they'll take you where you want to go! We'll use these vehicles to test our software and learn what it will really take to bring this technology into the world.

Vic -- thank you for a tremendous almost eight years at Google.  You cut your teeth on our mobile apps and developer relations, turning our disparate efforts into something great.  When I first used turn-by-turn navigation, it blew me away.  And, walking onto the stage at I/O last year, it was amazing to see developers so excited about Google.  These were vintage Vic projects.  Then you built Google+ from nothing.  There are few people with the courage and ability to start something like that and I am very grateful for all your hard work and passion.  I really enjoy using Google+ on a daily basis, especially the auto awesome movies which I really love sharing with my family and friends.  Good luck with your next project after Google.  In the meantime we’ll continue working hard to build great new experiences for the ever increasing number of Google+ fans.
 
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

Dear +Larry Page 

I hope you don't make rumors come true and slowly shut down Google+. Because if you did, it would be a great loss. It may not replace Facebook. But it doesn't have to. If I were head of Google+, I would advance the current strength which lies - as far as I can see - in two areas (besides the obvious universal login):
- Topic focussed communities
- Personal website/web content rating

I wish you and the team all the best for the future of Google+

We’ve just signed an agreement to sell Motorola to Lenovo for $2.91 billion. As this is an important move for Android users everywhere, I wanted to explain why in detail. We acquired Motorola in 2012 to help supercharge the A...

Nexus is terrible and the customer service is even worse!!!, We live in India. My husband & I gifted a nexus to son on 9th May 2014 and on 8th June 2014 it just kept blinking google. We have given it to a service centre on 10th June and till date we have no clue when my son is going to get his phone back, as the service centre just keeps saying they have ordered the mother board and have no clue as to when they will receive it. Shocked at the phone's performace within a month, and even more surprised at this horrible customer service from such a hugh brand!!!

Great to be arguing as an industry for surveillance reform.  It really is time for action and the US needs to lead the way.

Many of you appreciated my earlier share of a pancake recipe I like for mothers day. Here is how it turned out. Note the yellow a bit unusual and I think because I used little extra egg and partially cooked the liquid part by putting it on the griddle because I forgot to melt the butter. Still was delicious. I recommend peanut butter as added toping with touch of maple syrup.

+Larry Page now that I see the color, I just read the recipe, and it is really similar to the one we make at home.  Try mixing the ingredients in a blender, and adding carrots (for that recipe size, one or two mid carrots), or spinach.  It is tasty, and more nutritive.  I prefer them with honey and/or cheese.

Very excited about the progress the team is making with self-driving cars.  We're going to solve city streets! Great detailed article here.

Android wear!
 
Sharing what’s up our sleeve: Android coming to wearables

Today we’re excited to extend Android to wearables. And we’re starting with the most familiar wearable—watches. We’re already working with several consumer electronics manufacturers, including Asus, HTC, LG, Motorola and Samsung; chip makers Broadcom, Imagination, Intel, Mediatek and Qualcomm; and fashion brands like the Fossil Group to bring you watches powered by Android Wear later this year. If you’re a developer, check out developer.android.com/wear to download a Developer Preview so you can tailor your existing app notifications for watches powered by Android Wear. Look out for more developer resources and APIs coming soon.

I’m excited to announce that we’ve agreed to acquire Nest Labs.  Nest’s founders, Tony Fadell and Matt Rogers, have built a tremendous team that we are excited to welcome into the Google family.  They’re already delivering amazing products you can buy right now--thermostats that save energy and smoke/CO alarms that can help keep your family safe.  It’s amazing to see how they have taken important but unloved devices and made them beautifully simple and useful.  We are excited to bring great experiences to more homes in more countries and fulfill their dreams!

Estimado Sr. Lary Page: Me agradaría que me enviaran instructivos para crear video y que tengan en cuenta los aportes creativos y sugerencias brindadas durante años. Deseo trabajar en equipo y participar en eventos y posibles viajes interculturales. Noto que con su inestimable guía pudo continuar colaborando con Google+ y con youtube. Gracas. Dra.
