News: Motorola's social phone, Google's brain drain

Two recent tech news stories: Google's brain drain, and Motorola's new "social" phone, based on the Android operating system.

Google's brain drain

The Huffington Post offers four reasons that many talented people are leaving Google. While Google is losing only about 2% of their staff every year, the people they're losing are going on to be Presidents and CEOs and VPs of other companies.

Motorola's social phone

The NY Times reports that late last week Motorola introduced a new phone named Cliq that focuses on the use of social networks. The Cliq is based on Google's Android operating system, but has been "substantially modified" to make the phone stand out from the competition.
