Well, not exactly.... just met Richard Miner, the venture capitalist who created Android. Android is the open sourced mobile phone software that Google recently bought. He's an alum from where I work!

Notice they don't talk about iphones: :p

Hmmm, damnit, on that topic, where is ChromeOS? It is supposed to conveniently release at the exact sime time that Windows7 RC is deactivated.

All he said was that google wasn't backing away from either of them.... they're both still being released. (that's android and the chromeOS) He also said that he wasn't on the android team anymore so he doesn't have to worry about how they develop it. He's now managing partner of Google Ventures! :D

Google vice president of mobile technology Rich Miner will reportedly move from the Android mobile OS team to a new role with Google Ventures, the web services giant's rumored $100 million venture fund.
