There are rumors that Motorola CTO Padmasree Warrior had resigned and was leaving the beleaguered mobile phone maker. Well, those rumors must be true. Suddenly all the entires on her popular blog have been zapped. And if you try and go there, you get redirected to a generic Motorola page.

  1. yeah, but the entire collection of entries from 12/06 through august of this year are in the archive – see for yourself…some good stuff!

    but here’s a ***really ** funny bit – in her most recent archived blog entry, she rambles on about some personal stuff, excerpt:
