Look at every change we've seen since Larry took over - forget the Android founder, leader and chief acolyte in senior management in the Android chain because they're all gone, forget ad blockers, forget Gtalk because you can get locked in to the catastrophic Hangouts now, forget basic search because you get Google Now (only if you give Google access to your location, because that's a feature, which if you argue with your settings sort of goes back to basic search) and forget operating system versions having no meaning other than a tasty mnemonic because there's promotion opportunities there.
No money changed hands on the new name.
So they tell us.
Fun hardly begins to describe what Larry is having these days.
And he's doing it in plain sight.
