Techno Buffalo just broke the story that Google is now becoming a part of something even bigger. A blog post from Google themselves suggests that Larry Bird and Sergey Brin have decided to set up a new company called Alphabet. I shall post the link below so you can read the whole release for yourself, but what I gather from the story is that Google are trying to become more transparent in their business, and have decided to stop bundling new projects under the Google name. Other important news include the promotion of Sundar Pinchai to Google CEO.
