Today in Social

Google’s Eric Schmidt gets the award for testiest senior exec over Gilt Groupe’s Kevin Ryan today. Though one has to ask, why is Schmidt the one doing all the responding for Google? Isn’t that Larry Page’s job? Schmidt does some verbal sparring over the search/Google+ integration that incensed Twitter among others, whether Android is fragmented and how well several Google products are doing. Meanwhile, Ryan says a few layoffs while one is doing mergers and re-organizing, is not a sign of Gilt succumbing to any social commerce shakeout. Chill, fellas.
