FCC's Wheeler said to mull hybrid approach to net neutrality

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission appears set to reclassify broadband so that it comes under the agency’s authority, but without explicitly prohibiting special access deals between broadband and content companies, according to a news report.

Android creator Andy Rubin leaving Google

Andy Rubin, the engineer who developed Google’s Android OS and was lately in charge of its robotics efforts, is leaving the company, Google confirmed Thursday.

Rubin cofounded a company called Android, which Google acquired in 2005 for its mobile OS. Android has gone on to become the world’s most widely used mobile operating system.

Last year, though, Rubin was moved off the Android team and put in charge of Google’s robotics projects. His work was taken over by Sundar Pichai, who now leads Google’s Android, Chrome and other products.

The reasons for Rubin’s departure weren’t clear, though it had something to do with the structure of his team at Google, according to a report on tech news site The Information.
