Just landed after a trip to Chicago. Vic's departure from Google+ triggered up some old memories of my time in Google Mobile and social teams.

Everything I know about leadership, I learnt from watching +Vic Gundotra build Google+. He has such a big hand in where I am today. Cannot wait to see what comes next. +Vic Gundotra, looking forward to our next long walk :)

Google lost an incredible leader today. Google+ will not be the same anymore.

+Punit Soni, there is, if we're lucky, a long way for all of us... perhaps I do overestimate... perhaps time will prove otherwise... for now, may we all enjoy a journey filled with wonder and growth.

Actually, most everyone is a photographer thanks to you and your colleagues in the mobile industry. Keep up the good work in both arenas.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez passed away. Along with him, an era of writing passes away. I grew up reading his books, and losing myself in a world of intrigue, romance, betrayals, war and peace. Like all important things in life, his books require an investment of attention, patience, and time. But like all beautiful things, the reader was repaid with a magical journey into a new world. A world which was a kaleidoscope of human emotions never better articulated in words.

Love in the time of Cholera and Hundred years of Solitude were some of his most famous books. But there is so much more in his repertoire. His books were marked with a subtle fatalism of that heartbreak that is bound to happen, that we inexorably move towards in our lives. But they almost always ended with the victory of that best of human emotions, love. A deep love that took one's breath away.

We will miss you GGM. In your drama, you let us experience those subtle facets of life that we almost always overlook.

I agree with a lot in this article. I think we as a society, overrate successful people who work 24/7. In my opinion, the real hero who deserves to show up on the cover of Time Magazine isn't the CEO who turned around a large company or made millions. Its the guy (girl) who made a huge impact on the lives of people and somehow found time to be a great son, husband, parent, friend, asset to his community.

If you can achieve personal and professional success, and be happy at the end of the day, then you have got something really awesome going :)

That's a really successful person for me.

Hope this info helps. We are constantly working to accelerate upgrades.
 
A number of people have been asking me about that status of the KitKat upgrade for the 2012 DROID family (HD and M). I am happy to report that we have made great progress and it should only be a few more weeks until you guys can enjoy it. So stay tuned.....
