After almost ten years, +Nikesh Arora  our Chief Business Officer, has decided to leave Google to join one of our partners, SoftBank, as Vice Chairman of SoftBank Corp. and CEO of SoftBank Internet and Media.   I remember first meeting him at the British Museum, which for some reason Sergey had decided would be a good interview location. Nikesh has been a tremendous leader, adviser and mentor to many Googlers -- including me.  We have learned a lot together, and had a lot of fun along the way.  

+Omid Kordestani, who was our business founder and led our sales teams for many years, will be stepping in to lead our business organization for now.  When we hired Omid we had no business people so we had all the engineers interview him around a ping pong table.  I think he survived because he is actually an engineer!  Omid has always been one of my closest advisors, especially since I became CEO again in 2011.  He personifies the entrepreneurial spirit that is so important to Google.  There is nothing Omid doesn’t know about Google, our customers and partners, and I know that under his leadership the team will excel.

First comment boss. I love you
 
The value in having actual engineers in leadership positions can't be oversold. It makes the difference between mere success and outstanding success. 
 
Larry- very classy! Wish all leaders considered others efforts and gave similar send offs!
 
Now, if you can just get someone, ANYONE, to take over code development!  Your API's (Especially Google Drive!) blow.
 
Would like to see Google thrive in future under your leadership.

You are an inspiration.

Speaking of joint ventures, colonizing Mars is something Larry has talked about before. I know he said SpaceX would be a better place to put money than a charity, but Musk just said he doesn't need money from anyone.

How about Inspiration Mars and Mars One? They have the right scientists, engineers, and planning - their hurdle is cash.
 
Tommorow is mandela day give back to your community for 67min of your time
 
This is really noble and a way to do it right 
 
Great announcement, +Larry Page! Congratulations to +Nikesh Arora and     and  +Omid Kordestani Thanks so much for your great work for Google and best if luck to you both! 
 
My syntax prof would probably die reading this. :p
 
Google is great but when is glass going to be available to consumers and when will google cardboard work with the M8. I want one SOOOO bad
 
Maybe he will change the policy to allow purchased phones to be unlocked
 
Will Nikesh still work for Google but from a different company?

Synergy between Google and SoftBank... Interesting way to grow minus possible scrutiny for being too big.
 
Google is a great wonderful company, Thanks for all team,please do evil to chinese GFW,China need powerful Superman like Google to help chinese to got freedom and justice,more powerful more responbility...
 
I thought you may have had powerful friends. Google may be doubted,
but even Jesus was doubted! Don't worry! Google will be fine! Let
Google improve anyway!
 
+Larry Page 
Dear Larry Page 


The entrepreneurial spirit of Google, I believe that there is no reason you do not hear the voice of the external. 

For a new generation version of the Google search, I'd like to propose. 
This is a thing that not only resolve questions people or, clearly, I feel somehow, the inconvenience and provide enjoyment of the search, the experience that I think that not to bet. 
If you would draw it depressing to content at this stage, it is a disadvantage could not happen to me. 
First of all, Could you a place where you can tell the plan of my Larry, to you?

Unfortunately, I do not have your email address. 
But, there is a (Google+) SNS that can communicate relatively easy also CEO of a great company. 
Because I post to representative ID of the management, I believe firmly that this post, that there is no reason not to touch your eyes. 
Of course, and that they do not hear about the future of Google search, if you're considering, it is not the limit. 

Good luck to the new partnership of making things.

Holy fuck my stomach hurts.....
 
Good luck Nikesh, one of things that is clear, is there is great fresh talent at Google waiting in the wings. We have partnered with Google for over 7 years and they always replace great talent with amazing talent. Onwards and upwards.
 
Best of luck to both Nikesh and Omid! 
 
This is genuine gratitude! Awesome Larry!!!!!
 
"Meeting him at the British Museum, which for some reason Sergey had decided would be a good interview location." Very interesting!
 
Very inspiring soties. Great success for the new careers
 
Business team will now have to expand Google capacity to deal with multiple branches simultaneously to stabilize company for cooperation with other Internet giants. 
 
Google urge an early return to China now! Chinese netizens too need to Google it!
 
As an Iranian, I am proud to Mr Omid Kordestani
 
Awesome! I can't wait to see what he is going to do at Softbank with Sprint and T-Mobile. 
 
Larry Page you have provided us with the gift of the generation. I can't imagine starting and ending my day without Google.
 
Owned. SoftBank will be by the lightside of the force.
 
Let's wish them both luck. And Google is the ultimate but all the best the same

I think if a company set the British Museum as my interview location, that alone would make me super excited to work for them. Awesome.

Mr Page, you are so humble. What a message you have sent out there! Cheers!
 
Great job of using this platform to communicate the change, +Larry Page! This type of social media use makes these announcements so much more authentic and personal. 
 
+vince generalao Microsoft just announced they were laying off 18,000 people, 12,500 presumably at Nokia. So developing for Windows Phone might not be on anyone's front burner right now...
 
My mom said: "Do not just believe in google only, like you don't have own God"
She didn't know that google is just a machine, she thought google is wizard who can do and know everything...
Thanks to you... I love the inspiration...
 
Best of luck to both gentlemen. It must be tough to lose such a valued friend & colleague. However, it must be heartening to know that he is going to a great organization in SoftBank. One of my past managers, Ron Fisher, has worked in a senior role at SoftBank for nearly 20 years now...
 
Nikesh Arora and Omid, Enjoy Your Future ! Wow, Larry, what a humble owner you are , the way you thank them n  Praise them, Keep it Up Google !
 
felicidades +Nikesh Arora por su nueva meta , en donde me imagino desarrollara grandes ideas y a +Omid Kordestani por el gran logro de llevar a google de la mano al éxito , como siempre

And we proud of another Iranian engineer. 
 
Time for Google to open Google Travel, Google Print, and Google Finance, perhaps Google Real Estate and Google Insurance as well?
I wonder if Google has an idea bank/ Brain Trust thats hiring people who think outside a box while inside a box that's inside a box on dirt on a chunk of concrete on a bigger rock?
or i could just Ecommute?
 
I had a Softbank phone in Japan!  I had no idea they were a Google partner.
 
Now if the British Museum had a ping pong table ... 
 
Nikesh is different, but incredibly inspirational. Omid: you are a great guy (not only because your wife is coming near my hometown)
 
This post alone shows why your CEO at Google. 
 
If the new guy doesn't return the Wiki layer to Google Maps then he's worthless.

Hello Larry,
Please see the message I've sent via Hangout chat, it's important. Thank you
 
Maybe Google will now start to innovate instead of just buying out companies.
 
+John Garcia You mean like making robots and giving the world free satellite Internet. Stuff like that right. Oh, and singlehandedly launching the wearables revolution. Oh, and the free Google Fiber at Starbucks. That's awesome. So there, all your worries put to rest. It's like you were wrong when you started typing. Neat huh?
 
Mr. Larry Page i have a question , you are talking about an iranian engineer in google who you like working with him and he have too much benefits for you, so why you closed all of your services except search engine for us in IRAN ? Omid is iranian, and here is too much brains like him in here but they can not scream their talents and they are just wasting their life living in this limited country, use them, think about this for god sake
 
I'm want join to Google, but I'm in China.
 
how to cantact you? i want to ask somethink please
 
Dear president of Google:
From the past couple of months, I have experienced so much trouble and difficulty with the new YouTube updates that I have decided to boycott the use of YouTube from this day forward until the old YouTube site has been stopped of its refusal to allow users to comment, message and personal messaging response.

In addition, the connection of Google Plus with YouTube, to compete with Facebook, is indeed useless and unfair to YouTube users. We do not wish to share our real names on YouTube if our Real names are connected with our email to YouTube. Our real names stay within emails, not channels. You are making it sadly easy enough for others to hack into channels and posing as another person. You are allowing identity theft on YouTube.

I understand you are a highly respected search engine that decided to make some changes to make things easier within your company and the world, but if you continue to abuse your power and take away the things that you gave us and make it more difficult to do anything on YouTube, then our respect towards you will no longer be earned from you. To make it simple, Please stopping playing around with YouTube as a puzzle and turn it back to what it once was before Google plus and the unnecessary updates.

Signed-
Jose Gonzalez

Good luck to you both. Change can be a great thing for all!
 
Estimado, Larry Page:
Escribo para manifestar mi incomodidad por el doodle de hoy 28.07.14, en el que tu empresa ha optado por representar el día más importante de mi país con un plato de comida (no se cuál será, parece un plato de chaufa), y una bebida (una limonada? para tu información justo ayer celebramos el día del pisco). Sé que en el mundo se habla de nuestra gastronomía (y si querías retratarlo, hubieses escogido el cebiche), pero lo que celebramos hoy es nuestro día de independencia, el día en el que dejamos de ser colonia española, el día en que gritamos "somos libres", como lo dice nuestro himno... Si no, compáralo con tu 04 de julio, tu día de la independencia, y piensa, qué hubiese pasado si te conmemoro con una cajita feliz de McDonald´s y una coca-cola? Si tienes dudas, está el ministerio de cultura o el ministerio de turismo de mi país, te aseguro que pueden ayudarte sobre los simbolismos de mi patria, y creo que para el futuro deberías consultar con los países que conmemoras... eres una empresa con inversiones mundiales, pero dependes de países como nosotros y nuestra opinión cuenta. 
Saludos.

He was getting older as are you. Larry you are too old to work for Google now. Move on! Everyone knows that Google has an extremely ageist culture and this is evident because it did not release age related employee data concerning diversity. You really can't blame an older person from wanting to move on from Google.
 
Great business come from great friendship. Hope the best for you all. 
 
ok Larry I you promise not to take all my photos from Picasa 3 again, I will upload the 1, 800(actually I think it's more like 3,000) photos I have on Picasa the last time i did that someone swooped in and got all my photos from Picasa unto Google...That's an unfair practice, I have great photos that i'm willing to upload to Picasa and every time I post one, I share it with google, on the other hand you don't go in and steal all my photos, or else I will again delete everything and just post what you already have. I'm willing to share with my circle with the whole world but not before you assure me that one: my photos will remain on Picasa until the time I post a photo and share it with google. I need an assurance from you that you are not going to take all MY photos. You leave them be and i will share them with Google. And you especially do not hide the photo on my blog from me.  Please agree, because if you do what you did the last time actually go on Picasa 3 and take all my photos from 2003 to 2014, well I'll disappear. I have those photos on a stick, actually i have a lot of stick so I may choose one or two in the beginning to see if you will go along, up to you Larry, until you respond in the affirmative. You will never see another from me. So please respond and agree. If you  don't I'll continue as i'm doing showing photos that have been shown over and over again.

I would like to discuss the future of your driver-less vehicle.
I believe the general public would quickly embrace this technology  if Google .....
 
+Larry Page I've been listening to a couple of recent interviews and it seems like you conquered the voice issue. The confidence comes through and I don't even think about your voice being different. About the issue of you not being charismatic as Steve Jobs, you're not supposed to be. You're a tech guy. Jobs wasn't a tech guy.

Hi Larry,
              I have an issue in my mind.I dnt have gmail team email.So I am pasting here.I sent this to info@gmail.com.
 "just have an idea in my mind one of my friend had stolen his mobile.He was using messenger So than his account has hacked before he get into another machine.There should be a mechanism when a person's mobile snatch / theft or hacked he should provide you some sort of like we have Social Security No just like a no and that person call or sms to ur team  and the user report his account hacked activity to your team should verify that code and  could block his account or signout automatically from all the devices and password again sent to that user."
Thanks

Mr. Page,
My name is Scott Moran, and I am a teacher in a charter school district in Texas. I am writing to ask you if you have any sort of program established whereby schools are granted the use of your products in exchange for exclusive rights. We do not receive any funding from the state for technology, and ours is quite outdated. Do you have such a program? Would it be possible for me to discuss the matter with you? Please let me know. I can be reached at moran.scott1@gmail.com. Thank you for your time.
 
You sir, Larry Page, are the scum of the earth. You set yourselves up as the judges of all put slander and lies about people on your engine and then have the gall to call and want money to improve the bad and replace it with good,  the mob calls that extortion! You and all like you will soon be under the same type of scrutiny you put all the rest of us under. Your engine puts up 10 and 12 year old slander that is untrue and put up anonymously and then send and call with offers to "fix it" for a price. EXTORTION !  Your's is the only group that has done this to me, and I'll wager to many others You and all the others in your group will soon have every detail that can be found about you from the beginning of time to date.
