Here's the SEC filing for anyone that wants to dig into the details of how this will all happen. http://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1288776/000128877615000039/a20150810form8-k.htm
Chairman of Alphabet
Exactly!
On first thought it does seem like Android could have been spun off separately. Thinking about it a bit more tho most of Android's services depend on search and the neural network that makes it possible. It's deeply integrated. Android would logically be developed with the same resources that support Google Search and it's related services like Google Cloud, maps and voice recognition. Chrome OS will be under Google too for the same reasons.
I would disagree. IMO it should make the individual companies much more focused. Now their leadership can concentrate solely on their own businesses, succeed or fail on their own merits. The chances of the various companies being successful enterprises in their own right just went up with the new accountability and opportunities for recognition (and compensation!). I think it will be seen as a brilliant move, thus the excitement from investors.
No one outside of Microsoft knows how much MS actually takes in royalties for IP "supposedly" used by Android. "Supposedly" since they won't reveal what it is unless a company commits to negotiate a license and abide by an NDA. It's all very secretive. I doubt HTC was paying anywhere near a $B in any event. They didn't sell that many devices.
Might be something pretty interesting, but not sure what to make of it. If you read more do post it.
Thank you
Ah gotcha.
Ah quite right. My sincere apologies. Here it is.http://www.androidauthority.com/how-is-google-fixing-the-stagefright-vulnerability-that-affects-95-of-all-android-phones-631560/
