Google only rocked a universe with some light news on a Monday. It has restructured a association and all will now news adult to “Alphabet Inc.” a new corporate name. That includes Google, that will now be CEO’d by Sundar Pichai (one reduction Twitter CEO candidate).

The CEO of Alphabet will be Google CEO and co-founder Larry Page. His missive on Google’s blog (headlined G is for Google) explains what a new holding association is:

What is Alphabet? Alphabet is mostly a collection of companies. The largest of which, of course, is Google. This newer Google is a bit slimmed down, with a companies that are flattering distant afield of a categorical Internet products contained in Alphabet instead.

It looks like a batch marketplace is reacting agreeably to a announcement. Google’s…er Alphabet’s batch is adult over 6 percent after hours.
