Eric Schmidt

I'm with M.G. Siegler. Google's been subjected to a lot of pointed criticism from numerous quarters lately — some gripes are more valid than others, it should be said — and a change in leadership might be just what's needed to refocus the company. I don't know if Larry Page believes Google should be more conservative with what they release, if he recognises that search is losing the fight against spam, or if he thinks Android would benefit from more focus and discipline. In my opinion, these have all been substantial company problems that have festered over the last year, and I sincerely hope Page has a plan to address them. I guess time will tell.
