Google Inc. co-founder Larry Page is taking over as CEO in an unexpected shake-up that upstaged the Internet search leader's fourth-quarter earnings.

Wow, this is huge news. It's nice to see one of the co-founder back in control.

Had to quote that. lol

I'm sure quite a few other ppl thought the same thing. Just like ppl thought that about the iPhone. I remember seeing a quote recently that Steve Ballmer, Mr. Nutcase himself, said basically the same thing about the iPhone.

Its kinda eerie the similarities with Android and the iPhone. Both grabbed a ton of market share from established phones in a very short amount of time.
