Google last week announced its formation as an entirely new company, called Alphabet. It’s a corporate maneuver in which Google will become part of Alphabet. Google CEO and co-founder Larry Page will step down from the top post at Google proper and become CEO of Alphabet. Fellow Google co-founder Sergey Brin will become Alphabet’s president. Longtime Google executive Sundar Pichai is now Google’s CEO.
The Flash can’t help but ask: What is Alphabet, exactly? And Larry Page is prepared with an answer.
