An incisive look into the world´s most innovative tech company and the man chosen to lead it On 10 August 2015, an unassuming product expert who learnt his ropes at IIT Kharagpur was declared the next CEO of tech giant Google. Sundar Pichai´s appointment was hardly an unexpected one. Pichai is a man known as much for his veritable Midas touch with every product he has developed or led for Google - Chrome, Chrome OS and Android, to name just a few - as for his superlative people skills and open-minded approach to innovation. Yet, the company´s decision to restructure its product lines and appoint Pichai as the head of a leaner, more focused Google, has raised inevitable questions: What does Pichai´s role augur for the future of the tech giant? Will Google consolidate its position for existing products or will they focus on creating new ones? And will Pichai transform the organization that Schmidt, Page and Brin created and led, or confirm the belief of a minority of naysayers that he is not yet ready for this daunting role? Pichai: The Future of Google provides answers to these questions while throwing light on Sundar Pichai´s childhood and education; his entry into the tech world and quick rise up the ranks in Google; and his key contributions as a leader and tech-guru to Google´s most successful properties. Timely and insightful, this book offers a rare glimpse into the fascinating ecosystem of a path-breaking company and shows us what it takes to be a dynamic leader in the 21st century. 1.

The organic guide to Google SEO Learn the proven organic search engine optimization methods and techniques The SEO industry and the rules for ranking on Google have completely changed in the past couple of years. It´s changed due to a new set of rules that have emerged in the wake of Google´s World Wide Web war that it waged in the silent digital abyss of cyberspace. This war that Google waged was against spammers and other websites that were bending and breaking the SEO rules to bully their ways to the top of search engine results pages (SERPs). In waging this war, Google dropped some atomic bombs in the form of changes to its algorithms (search formulas) that have completely transformed many of the strategies and techniques for ranking a website today. Gone are the easy days of instituting link schemes, keyword stuffing, and content cloaking, just to name a few of the ill-used techniques that led to this war. Today, the name of the game is relevancy. If Google doesn´t think you´re relevant, then not matter what techniques you use for search engine optimization from whatever SEO book you find them in, they won´t work. Why should you care about all this? Now that the digital dust has settled, it´s important for you to understand the new set of rules for ranking websites that now dominate the Web. Without the very important information contained in this SEO book, ranking today for any competitive keywords will be incredibly difficult. If you are going to make lasting changes on Google´s SERPs, then you have to have the knowledge and know-how of what works today and what doesn´t. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Smokey Rivers.

The cofounder of America Online and the presidential ambassador for global entrepreneurship shares a road map to success for future innovators. Steve Case was on the leading edge of the Internet revolution when he cofounded AOL in 1991. He was an entrepreneur in a business that hadn´t even been invented, yet he saw how significantly his efforts could change not only America but the world. In The Third Wave, Case uses his insights garnered from nearly four decades of working as an innovator, investor, and businessperson to chart a path for future visionaries. From his position as an investor in start-ups like Zipcar and LivingSocial, Case predicts the future of the economy and describes what he calls the ´´Third Wave of the Internet´´. AOL and other companies introduced early consumers to the Internet in the first wave; search giants such as Google and companies such as Apple have led us into the second wave, the app economy; and the third wave will be ´´the Internet of things´´, in which every experience, product, and service will be transacted online. Using his own experience and examples from companies he´s invested in, he lays out a vision for the future of success in a disrupted age. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steve Case.

A groundbreaking exploration of what it means to be a late bloomer in a culture obsessed with SAT scores and early success and how finding one´s way later in life can be an advantage to long-term achievement and happiness.We live in a society where kids and parents are obsessed with early achievement, from getting perfect scores on SATs to getting into Ivy League colleges to landing an amazing job at Google or Facebook - or even better, creating a start-up with the potential to be the next Google or Facebook or Uber. We see software coders becoming millionaires or billionaires before age 30 and feel we are failing if we are not one of them.Late bloomers, on the other hand, are undervalued - in popular culture, by educators and employers, and even unwittingly by parents. Yet the fact is a lot of us - most of us - do not explode out of the gates in life. We have to find our way. We have to discover our passions, talents, and gifts. That was true for author Rich Karlgaard, who had a mediocre academic career at Stanford (which he got into by a fluke) and after graduating, worked as a dishwasher and night watchman before finally finding the inner motivation and drive that ultimately led him to start up a high-tech magazine in Silicon Valley and eventually to become the publisher of Forbes magazine.There is a scientific explanation for why so many of us bloom later in life. The executive function of our brains doesn´t mature until age 25 - and later for some. In fact, our brain´s capabilities peak at different ages. We actually enjoy multiple periods of blooming in our lives. Based on several years of research, personal experience, and interviews with neuroscientists and psychologists and countless people at different stages of their careers, Late Bloomers reveals how and when we achieve our full potential - and why today´s focus on early success is so misguided and even harmful. 1.

The driver was insistent: ´´A woman should not be giving directions.” Despite the customer-service rep’s reassurance that the navigation system in his car wasn’t actually a woman - just a computer with a female voice - the driver (and many others like him) refused to listen. There was only one person for BMW to call for help: Clifford Nass, one of the world’s leading experts on how people interact with technology. After two decades of studying problems like BMW’s GPS system, Microsoft’s Clippy (the most hated animated character of all time), and online evaluations that led people to lie to their laptops, Nass has developed a powerful theory: Our brains can’t fundamentally distinguish between interacting with people and interacting with devices. We will ´´protect” a computer’s feelings, feel flattered by a brown-nosing piece of software, and even do favors for technology that has been ´´nice” to us. All without even realizing it. Nass has found that the most powerful strategies for working with people can be learned from watching what succeeds and fails in technology interfaces. If a computer can make friends, build teams, and calm powerful emotions, so can any of us. Nass’s studies reveal: Mixing criticism with praise - a popular tactic for managers - is a destructive method of evaluation. Opposites don’t attract - except when one gradually changes to become more like the other. Flattery works - even when the recipient knows it’s flattery. Team-building exercises don’t build teams - but the right T-shirt can. Misery loves company - but only if the company is miserable, too. Nass’s discoveries push the boundaries of both psychology and technology and provide nothing less than a new blueprint for successful human relat 9781596596665 N N ©2010 Clifford Nass, Corina Yen;(P)2010 Gildan Media Corp http://www.audible.de/pd/B004V19FLE?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true http://www.audible.de/pd/B004V19FLE?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true Marketing in the Age of Google: Your Online Strategy IS Your Business Strategy (Unabridged) 22.95 AVAILABLE Marketing in the Age of Google: Your Online Strategy IS Your Business Strategy (Unabridged) Marketing in the Age of Google (Unabridged) Vanessa Fox In the age of Google, your customers are searching.
