Sometime today, some other site—probably The Verge—will post a more in-depth remembrance of Andy Rubin
. Until then, this will have to do.
Just to be clear, the man's not dead, but he has officially parted ways with Google
. Their loss, really. A key architect in what is now the world's most popular operating system, Rubin has actually struck mobile gold twice
in his career so far.
Anyone remember the hiptop/Sidekick? That was his, too.
