Sergey Brin(co – founder of Google) and Mark Zuckerberg were recently together at UCSF’s Genentech Hall to launch the Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences. Forbes has reported that once the press interviews were over, Zuck confidently “strode over to Brin” to take a look at the Google X labs product Google Glass. Sergey Brin has been quoted to be obsessed with the Googler and never is photographed without it.
Zuckerberg has been quoted saying “I can’t wait to get my own”. Googler(Google Glass) is getting much attention in the media now-a-days. The Googler itself looks very cool and a gadget which geeks and technology enthusiast crave for. Surely the smartphones are becoming more powerful and more smarter but still it is being used as the same way it was used before. But here we see Google Glass (Googler) as something new and innovative and totally mind blowing technology. Something which we used to see in futuristic movies only which is now becoming a reality. So we are all excited, thus excitement of Mark Zuckerberg is also justified.
The two companies maybe fighting a battle on internet but Zuckerberg has shown a reverence for Google’s technologies. He was quoted saying : “Even though our relationship isn’t one where the companies really talk, we are able to do a bunch of things and build some great experiences”.
Facebook has already a team of three engineers waiting to get their hands on the Googler. Facebook maybe is trying to put up a application for Googler which would mean more user engagement and way more cooler than smartphones ! The two techies tried to keep the meeting as informal as possible and Zuckerberg also candidly asked Sergey “Is there anything specific you want us to be trying? If so, I want to be doing that”. Surely Mark has recognized what is going to be future and has given a signal to Sergey that this is the right direction !
What is going to be future ? Smartphone or Googler ? Let us know in your comments.
