Google is not a company that is averse to making the tough decisions, and most recently, we were “treated” to news that Google Reader will be persona non grata when July 1st rolls around on your calendar. The thing is, we have yet another bit of news concerning Google (other than having Andy Rubin step down from his position as head of the Android division) as well, in addition to another major bit – that Google will be merging two of their major divisions, namely Maps and Search, where this new amalgamation will be headed by the Search head, Alan Eustace.
The head of the Maps division, Jeff Huber, has already confirmed this report from The Wall Street Journal over on his Google+ page, claiming that he will still remain with the search giant, although paying his dues at the Google X research division. We do wonder what kind of new creations will roll out from this alliance of departments, but I am quite sure that whatever Google releases from here will definitely lean more towards the users’ best interests than anything else.
