Adding additional sensors with additional software features definitely will have a good effect and comfort for the users.

Really bad news for Obama. Now, the unemployment will tick up as the Bureau of Labor will add that up as lost jobs. Can someone ask Google to hold on?

Let Google open VC funds for some MOT staff. It is tough to be an employee in this age. Nothing is guaranteed.

"Adding additional sensors with additional software features" is what everybody else in the business is doing. Take your conclusions.

"Really bad news for Obama. Now, the unemployment will tick up as the Bureau of Labor will add that up as lost jobs. Can someone ask Google to hold on?" Great, now we have supposedly well-educated professionals who espouse that private industry should intentionally mislead the electorate for one party's political gain...did you ever stop to think that if that very same party lived up to its promises that unemployment would be 6% or less by the end of his first term that such lies would be unnecessary?

I think this was inevitable, albeit terribly sad for the people who are going to be laid off. PS. I believe that concentrating on higher end models would give more confidence to other Android platform manufacturers. Google should not compete head-on with other Android platform manufacturers, otherwise Android will lose its appeal.

It's bad news for the people who are going to be laid off really. We should not care much for Obama's prospects as a result of this (or Romney's for that matter).

I just hope Motorola doesn't lose all of it's personality as it becomes part of Google. It was a great company at one time.

One third of job cut in US... pretty sad but that seems to be expected. How the American employees can add values to the company? It is ironic that many big and successful business sectors are US companies and they generate quite impressive revenue but those can't really be beneficial to general employees in US as the money basically is making out of the cheap workforce outside US!

Well, ain't that ironic. Many of those people who generated the 17k patents and ip are getting served up pink slips. It would be nice if Apple and Google could figure out how to be profitable without plundering their communities.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
