Vic Gundotra, head of Google+, is leaving Google

27

Vic Gundotra, the Google SVP of Engineering that brought Google+ to the world, is leaving the company. Gundotra took to his creation to publicly announce his departure in a post title "And Then". He thanked the Google leadership for their support over his 8 year tenure, as well as the Google+ team that he led:

I'm also forever in debt to the Google+ team. This is a group of people who built social at Google against the skepticism of so many. The growth of active users is staggering, and speaks to the work of this team. But it doesn't tell you what kind of people they are. They are invincible dreamers. I love them. And I will miss them dearly.

He also said that he is "excited about what's next. But this isn't the day to talk about that." It seems he has something lined up, but what exactly, we're not sure.

Google Glass online orders are still apparently open

7

Update: Aaaaaaand it's gone. Google's store is now marked as out of stock. TechCrunch got details.

Last week Google Glass ditched the invites and went on sale to anyone and everyone for just one day. That meant that whoever wanted to snag Glass could do so without any caveats, like having to sign up for the Explorer program or wait on an invite. While the Glass page is currently showing the program as closed once again, it appears that Glass may still be available for purchase directly from Google.

This week's sidebar poll: Tablets - who's using one?

99
Nexus 7

We talk a lot about tablets here at Mobile Nations. The big four (Android, Apple, Blackberry and Windows) all have a tablet or tablets available, and while some may have been tossed aside others are all the rage. At least on the Internet, they are. Sales numbers and analysts aside tell us all manner of things, but as usual, I know the best way to find out what you guys and gals think or do is to just ask.

So that's what I'm doing this week. Are you part of the so-called post-PC generation, or do tablets just not offer anything you need? It's an interesting topic, as you can pick up a Chromebook for as little as $200 and some phones can do just about anything you can do on a tablet now. So tell us!

There's a poll on the front page, in the right-hand sidebar. You'll also find it below. Take a minute and share with us all.

Do you use a tablet?

Airview on the Galaxy S5

The lowdown on what Airview can do for you and how you use it
