Google now part of the Alphabet

Post by CivBase on Mon Aug 10, 2015 11:05 pm

As part of a re-structure, Google is being trimmed down and made part of a new, larger parent company called Alphabet.

Seriously.

Larry Page is the CEO of Alphabet and Sundar Pichai (head of Chrome and Android) is now the head of Google. All shares of Google are being transferred to Alphabet shares on a 1:1 scale (I don't think you can buy shares of the companies owned by Alphabet).

What was know of as Google now has been broken up into a bunch of smaller companies, all owned by Alphabet.

Google Inc. - Search, Android, Chrome, ads, etc
Google X - Google Glass, self driving car, Parkinson's spoon, internet balloons, etc
Google Fiber - ISP
Google Ventures - Venture capital investments
Google Capital - late-stage growth capital fund
Calico - Biotech r&d
Nest Labs - Smart home stuff (thermostat, smoke detector, etc)

Nothing crazy here, it's just another necessary step towards global dominion over man.

They've been at it for years now.
