    All those years ago then CEO Kirt McMaster proclaimed that Cyanogen would be placing a bullet in the head of Google implying that their new OS product would one day be a worthy replacement for Google's Android which Cyanogen itself is built on. Cyanogen won't be killing Google anytime soon after all. They just announced that they will be ditching Cyanogen OS all together in favor of Cyanogen Now.

    Cyanogen has been working on their stand alone apps for a while in an attempt to remove as many Google products and services from their OS as possible. They will now be transitioning to a modular approach with Google Now. Not only will this significant change occur, but McMaster will also be handing over the reigns to a new CEO. Lior Tal will take on the challenge of growing the business and increasing the efficiency at which they scale.
