Everyman Sundar Pichai Picks Up Side Job as CEO of Alphabet

Like many Americans struggling just to stay afloat through stagnant wages in an uncertain economy, Google CEO Sundar Pichai announced today that he’s doing what so many of us have: getting a second job.

A rash and highly publicized personnel decision has put Google in the crosshairs of its own workers—and soon, the National Labor Relations Board, which may well find the company broke the law.

Donald Trump to Freak Out About Political Ads on Google in 3, 2, 1

Donald Trump clearly doesn’t watch CBS, because if he did, he’d be standing on a tarmac in front of a chopper, screaming about yesterday’s 60 Minutes report. For an interview with YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki, the program found that Google and YouTube collected the Trump campaign’s money for more than 300 video ads before removing them days later. The evidence can be found in Google’s public...

For the latter, it means this holiday season is a good chance to jump on sales and buy a replacement smartwatch or tracker. But which one?

While Gizmodo does have a pretty great buying guide (curated by yours truly), it...
