    Google announced after close of markets today that they are splitting their company into a holding company called "Alphabet" which will manage all of their dream products that they lose tens of billions on (Calico, Google+, Self-driving cars, Google Loon, etc.) and a separate entity called "Google Search".

    Larry Page and Sergey Brin will be the heads of Alphabet, and Sundar Pichai will run the Search side of Google.

    Did Google just go "full retard" on this one?

    As far as I can tell this is really just a way to keep the circle jerk going for Larry Page's pet projects that lose billions (like trying to live forever via Calico) and having that make less of an impact on earnings from their only profitable service: advertising.

    Really? I mean you talk as if you you have added so much value to your thread with your BS opinion....btw i have linked to the proper sources and it's obvious people are going to refer those sources...Judging by your replies you are trying to say they should have consulted you to name who should be CEO lol...

    I have no idea what you're talking about, but sure let's go with that. A serious discussion on this change was obviously taking place there.

    I've read somewhere earlier about the sections & they were called Alpha & Beta previously.
    In the end, they combined both stuff and entitled as "Alphabet".

    I'm not sure, whether it is true or just a crap :)

    You are right, they only did this so it makes their earnings look better.

    Smart move

    The whole point is that Alphabet companies should have independence and develop their own brands.
