Larry Page is a great change for Google it seems.

Plus Android SDKs are painfully slow


The Transformer is the only Android tablet I'd ever suggest anyone to buy if for some odd reason the iPad wasn't good enough.

my gut feeling is that larry page is going to be a disaster at google....

the transformers battery life is okay, but, it has a big problem with the wireless interface. if you set it to 'turn off' when idle it gets stuck in a loop of starting and stopping the wireless and kills the battery. hoping this will be fixed when 'ice cream sandwich' comes out. but in all honesty this is it for me with android. it is like windows: you are always hoping the next iteration will be less buggy (and it never really is).

You may be able to RMA that. My Transformer screen is beautiful, and browsing through various forums it seems expectations are high for the machine and RMAs quickly issued for any anomalous units.

I hear you on the tablet-specific apps, but I suspect this will change quite a bit in 2012 as more devs take advantage of ICS' APIs.

Why do you feel that? He's already trimmed the fat so to speak and put a focus on both ui and ux for the first time at Google.

I see his actions as real forward thinking and it seems as if Google is growing up.

Agreed. Schmidt's obviously a smart man, but he has a habit of saying things that make him sound much less smart than he is. He might make a good COO, but as a CEO he was a very bad choice. Larry seems to be handling the job much more effectively.

steve jobs told him to focus on a few things you do well. He took his advice and cut a bunch of products. he focused on google apps and they have redesigned it a bit. thats good but what about the future? google+? not great. buying motorola mobile? will have to wait and see about that one. android? unifying is a good idea. too bad they didn't see it early on. but none of this is insanely great.
larry is a search guy. i don't think he can be a 'steve jobs'. maybe i am wrong. will wait and see.

He doesn't have to be Steve Jobs.
